My animated mouse cursor has stopped animating!
Ever since I had a few problems reinstalling W95 from the CD-ROM (which worked in the end) I have had 'static' mouse pointers. I rather preferred the little animated Hourglass...
               ... any ideas? Reinstalling mousepointers from the
Win95 CD-ROM doesn't fix it ... (using OSR/2 version)

go to device manager and see if any of your hard drives are using dos compatability mode. that would load 16bit drivers and stop the cursors from animating.
check your harddrive controllers for conflicts, error messages, etc.
if they are in compatability mode you must get 95 to use 32bit drivers. if you have no special drivers from the manufacturer delete the offending item and restart 95. it should then reinstall new drivers and hopefully your problem will be solved.
another problem could be IRQ conflicts which would prevent your controler card from working correctly. you can check that in device manager also. dbl left click on computer to check IRQ,s.
