My computer is stuck on the pointer arrow/egg timer.Shutting down(switching it off at the mains) and starting again makes no difference.How can I get back to just the pointer?

Go to mouse properties and select the pointers tab to adjust.

Are you using a wireless mouse and keyboard? If so you could try uninstalling the software, if you have any, and reinstalling.

You should also check that your mouse and keyboard drivers are up to date.

Have you also checked to see if there any processes that are hanging - control-alt-delete and then going onto task manager. If there is, try ending it.
