IE9 cursor show a "hand" not an "arrow"

I am not sure what I did, but my IE9 now gives me a "hand" not an arrow. Normally I would not care, but I am unable to highlight text and copy text from web sites now. I am using Firfox as a work around, but I would love to have my IE fixed.

Please help....

Check your Scheme settings for pointers. In Windows 7, go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization and then click Change mouse pointers.

The Scheme can be changed to 'Windows Aero'  or whatever you want and when you highlight  'Normal Select' the Arrow should display in the box as the selected pointer.

I think this is an IE specific issue. In firefox and chrome my pointer behaves correctly. I only see the hand when in an IE window. When I left click with my mouse, the hand will close, it looks like it is trying to grab a piece of paper. It looks like it does when reading a .pdf.

sry for delay.
ok, i understnad that IE is behaving differently.Can you just try to set the theme to Windows 7 (basic theme) and see if the hand cursor goes away? Just want to make sure its not you themes settings.
