Ok now it seems to be only changing to the 4 arrow cross pointer when hovering over text, whether it be in Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Firefox. It also is changing when hovered over anything clickable in Firefox, but doesn't change when hovered over quicklinks or the File, Edit, View taskbar. When in Outlook reading an email, the arrow is the slanted single everywhere until i hover over any text or links. This is bugging me.
It doesn't seem to be software specific, cause it is the normal arrow over file names in Windows Explorer, but once you move the arrow to the left side of the window (where the blue bar is that has File and Folder Tasks, Other Places, and Details) it changes to the 4 arrow when over the links like "rename this file" and anything clickable over there.
