I recognize this, the flailing cursor. I don't want to see it again.

First it showed up if I mistakenly moved with a cursor over ads. Now it's all over the place.

(I've a mac, should that matter), but post with this shimmering bird thing.

@ossobuco,
The reason I don't like to see dancing arrows is they seem tosomething to have to do with my computer shutting down.

@ossobuco,
If it were a PC, I'd tell you to reboot the computer. If that didn't work, I'd tell you to power down the computer, unplug the mouse from the computer, blow on the plug and replug it back in.

Doing the mouse unplug trick often eliminates the bubble of static electricity that sometimes forms between the connections. Since we're having many thunder storm warnings in the area today, static electricity could be the culprit.

Have no idea if it works on an Apple creature.

@Butrflynet,
I've not had the cursor shimmer since before my last computer melt down. I don't like it....

but recently it shimmers over very occasional ads, when I move on the screen. This last bit was sort of scary. We'll see.

Try a new/different mousepad. I've had a problem with the wacky cursor twice and both times, a new mousepad took care of it. They get old and slick and the beams from your mouse starts to bounce off of it.
Hope this helps.
