That's due to you have activated the option "Auto hide the pointer during typing".
You can go the Control Panel > then Mouse > then the 3rd tabs Pointer Option, and deactivate the "Auto hide the pointer during typing" near the end.

Sorry, my Windows is in French, so I do not cite exactly the term in english, but I hope you can follow.

Thank you so much for your reply. I tried it, it looks like it does not work. However, i found my another application also have the same problem, which is that the program stop running for several seconds, and then run again. i doubt it is some kind virus etc

I had this problem with FireFox, at least I think it was firefox.  Solution was to disable the Skype plug in although I don't see how this would impact MS Word...

Is this a new problem, used to behave normally?

Try logging on as a different user and see if the problem is profile specific.

Try rebooting and closing all non-essential programs.

Cheers,
