Hi, and thanks for using JustAnswer.

Add this page to your Favorites/Bookmarks first, so as to get back to me anytime later on, if needed.

Does the cursor get stuck when carrying out any specific task/program, or randomly? Also, are you using a laptop?

Regards

yes laptop- hp pavilion sv5-2072 entertainment notebook windows 7

Expert:  Barun replied 5 years ago.
Okay, and are you using the laptop's touchpad, or an external mouse? If it's the former, have you tried testing with an external mouse?

Just one more question: does this only happen when browsing the Internet?

Regards
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
i think so------not sure- but it is mostly when im on line
Expert:  Barun replied 5 years ago.
Okay. Let's try resetting your browser first. In Internet Explorer, please go to Tools > Internet Options. Click on the Advanced tab; do you see a Reset button present?

If so, click on that, make sure that "Delete personal settings" is checked, and finally click on Reset one more time, in the confirmation prompt that comes up. Close and restart IE thereafter, then check if this makes any difference to your issue with the cursor freezing up at times.

Keep me posted.

does that mean i have to re enter passwords? does it erase or change what?
Expert:  Barun replied 5 years ago.
If you don't want to erase your passwords/history/login data etc., just make sure to UNCHECK the "Delete personal settings" option while resetting the browser. Keep me posted.
