      Now to convince the user that it?s a feature (:?)
      Look at this article, type thr Q number in the search box at technet.microsoft.com:

      IntelliPoint: Pointer Disappears When You Type in Some Programs

      Q256979

      These behaviors can occur if you are using version 2.2 or earlier of the IntelliPoint software. Version 2.2 and earlier is not supported in Windows 2000.

      1. In Control Panel, double-click the Mouse icon.
      2. Click the Visibility tab.
      3. Click the “Make the pointer disappear when you begin typing” check box to clear it.
      4. Click OK.

        Although this wasn’t totally correct, in that the procedure for fixing wasn’t relevent.
        Pointing out the Software issues prompted me to update it, which cured the issue,
        Thanks very much.
        I apologise for the delay in the rating,
