Problem with flashing Black Box

Dell / Dimension 4600i...

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.593 GHz / 1022 MB
I have Windows XP Home. I went to change my Pointer.
However, when I did so, there is now a flashing Black Box that preceeds words when I type.
I don't have any Discs in my computer and I went back to Default Settings.
Any help would be appreciated.
Phil

in pointer do you mean mouse?
Have you tried going into the control panels and changing the mouse settings?

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I meant changing the Pointer in my Mouse.Originally I went to the "Mouse" in Control Pane. I went back in there to try to fix it.
If I go outside this Reply Box and left Click, the "Black Box" disappears. As soon as I go back in the Reply Box, there is the usual Bar when a person Types. When I click the "Bar", the Black Box appears.

I tried your suggestion but it did not work. Could there be something in the Mouse settings that should be checked or unchecked that could fix it?
My Driver is updated.
Thanks,
Phil
