First, I'd like to thank Geeks to Go in advance for your assistance. :tazz:

Ok, here's the problem. I just clean installed my new HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop to Windows XP Professonal. After installing OS, this is what I did next:

1) Laptop drivers.
2) Avast Antivirus.
3) Cursor XP.
4) Icon Packager.
5) Ran windows update. It installed a few updates.

At this point, everything was fine.

Next, I installed SP2. After it finished updating to SP2, I restarted the laptop and there's when the problem occurred. Desktop taskbar and icons started to come and go, about 10 times, before it displayed the infamous "DrWatson Postmortem" error. The error went away and the desktop went to normal, taskbar and icons were showing, HOWEVER, when I moved my mouse to the Start button or taskbar, it would only show the time cursor, so I couldn't do anything. Also clicking on any desktop icon wouldn't do anything as well as going to Windows Task Manager, the time icon appeared. I could only shut down the laptop by pressing the on/off button. OK, so I botted up in Safe mode and unistalled Cursor XP and restarted in Normal mode and yeap everything is working fine.

I really would like to have Cursor XP work in my laptop but everytime I reinstall it, same problem occurs. This only happened after I installed Service Pack 2. I have just installed Ad-Aware and SpywareBlaster. If anyone could please diagnose what is conflicting with Cursor XP and how I can get around the issue or if there's a free software that provides nice cursors, please share. Thanks for your time.
