    Just starting today the mouse cursor on my pc (running xp pro) started changing into different colours and cursors - none of which i have installed myself. It went from the default colour, now it gets rainbows streaks running through it, and the hourglass has changed to green and animates differently to the default windows one. Im guessing this is spware of some sort, i have run adaware and spybot, and also have spwareblaster installed and up to date. All other windows applications and graphics are still working perfectly..weird! please help! PS when i go to the control panel - these strange cursors do not show up in the mouse options, and changing back to the defaults has no effect...
