Am able to get on the internet through Mozilla, but no other applications are displaying the cursor. Thanks.


Answers :

Best practices after nasty virus attacks that leaves your system unstable or working less than normal calls for a reinstall. My advice to you is backup any files you want to keep on a usb drive and VIRUS SCAN THE DRIVE. Once you are 100% sure that your files are backed up and virus free gather your OS install media and CD Keys then reinstall. I can not stress enough to be 110% sure your back up files are clean or you will reinfect your new OS install. With well over 12 years of experiences fighting viruses this is just the way to go rather than spending days or weeks of hair pulling trying to restore a damaged OS until this is a mission critical system for a customer.
