My cursor is now followed by a black square instead of a vertical line.  How can I get rid of the black square?

The mouse cursor is followed by a black square.  I have looked at the Mouse propterties and changed cursor selections, but the black square remains.  I have also tried different options in the display properties.  How can I get rid of the black square and go to the (normal) vertical line at the cursor position?

I did try System Restore, but none of the checkpoint restore points would restore.

The Accessibility Options width setting was the solution.  Thanks very much for that answer.  I did not know where to look anymore until your suggestion.  Great!!!
