Around the CURSOR is a Box Shape.

The box is retangular  in shape and moves with the cursor. It was not there a few days ago but has recently appeared. I want to remove it but don't know how. This is a new computer and I'm still learning. Thanks for any help on removing the box!

Re: Around the CURSOR is a Box Shape.

Dear Melbee,
 I like to help you but please answer my questions:
1) Are we talking about the mouse pointer or cursor?
2) If yes,are you logged-in as the administrator in that pc?
3) What is the Operating System and what is the Product Number

(P/N) of your pc?

Re: Around the CURSOR is a Box Shape that moves with the cursor.

How do I remove?  The default button on dialog box in "Personalize" Mouse Pointers is grayed, so won't return to default.
