Hi

It's a programme that allows you to customise the look and feel of your cursor. It's also an advertising and marketing programme that collects information on your web habits.

It should be listed in Add/Remove Programs - have you tried to uninstall it?

Yes I have looked but it isn't there. I even did a regedit search using Comet(nothing) and cursor ( a bunch but tied into Synaptics.) I am going to remove that and see if that helps. Thanks.

No worries. Try a scan with Ad-aware or Spybot as well.
