Jonabert CabansalBlack Box Mouse Cursor in After Effects

Hi there guys! ☺

OK. I got this problem whenever I use Adobe After Effects CS3. My mouse cursor doesn't look normal. It turns into a black box cursor with weird arrow heads at the edges. I am using a Sony Vaio laptop F Series with NVIDIA GT 300M video card.

So, guys do you have any idea how I find solution to this this? Looking forward to your response.

Thanks in advance! God bless.

That's pretty bizarre. I'd try restoring the After Effects preferences or updating the graphics card drivers.

From the Preferences [link] manual page:
To restore default preference settings, hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS) while the application is starting. To also restore default keyboard shortcuts, Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the OK button.

Hi Walter! I would like thank you for the response!

I tried to restore the AE preferences and also tried updating NVIDIA (which says I've got the latest driver), but still nothing has changed. My cursor is still a black box.
