A computer i manage has come up with a very strange issue; the cursor, when in word will flick from the windows 7 loading blue circle cursor back to the normal pointer every second or half second. Its very annoying, but does not interfere with any of the functionality of word.

steps i have tried to resolve this:
disabled all word add-ins
disabled all startup items and non-microsoft services.
uninstalled and reinstalled and repaired office.
Googled it.

I Have run out of ideas, hopefully someone here has seen this before.
