This is a weird problem, but my mouse cursor and the mouse hot spot are not\nthe same location. The actual hot spot is 16 pixels up and 16 pixles to the\nleft of the cursor.\n\nThe easy way to demostrate this is to run Microsoft Paint and draw a free\nhand line. The line will be draw at the 16,16 pixel offset from the actual\ncursor location.\n\nThis problem shows up in various programs, not just Paint. Microsoft\napplications and 3rd party applications, so looks like it a problem with\nVista and the graphic drivers.\n\nHowever it does not occur on the windows desktop. If you click on the\ndesktop and drag a selection then the cursor and the hot spot are correctly\naligned. It is also correct if you hover over the Minimise, Maximise and\nClose icons on the top right of all applications.\n\nBut if you hover over the thick boarder to resize the same application\nwindow, then again it's offset by the 16 pixels. This is also the case for\nany scroll bars and buttons in the application.\n\nNow I thought this was really weird until I found the MS KB article\n\n[URL]http://support.microsoft.com/kb/937229/en-us[/URL]\n\nWhich explains that VISTA changes from a 'Hardware Cursor' to a 'Software\nCurosr' when it resizes a window. So the problem make sense that the Graphic\nCard 'Hardware Cursor' is workling correctly, while the VISTA 'Software\nCursor' is incorrectly 16x16 pixel offset.\n\nI guess its some form or Graphic Driver or VISTA problem. But I have the\nlatest driver for my ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT Running on a DELL XPS Quad Q6600\nCPU with DELL Blue Tooth Mouse. Have also tried attaching a standard USB\nMouse and that dose not solve the problem.\n\nI was running Windows Aero, so I switched back to Windows Classic and that\ndid not solve the problem.\n\nThis one looks pretty weird, any idea?
