    Mouse Cursor Disappears after unlock screen Windows 8.1

    Lately my pointer is disappearing after i login from sleep or locked computer.

    I had this problem in the past but it got solved after i restored my PC, now it came back to haunt me.
    I am guessing some updates disrupted with the mouse cursor (not an expert opinion).

    I've tried many things but the issue seems to be persistent.

    Here are some things I've tried with no results:

    Changing the pointer options (hide while you type, pointer trails, ctrl to highlight) and combinations of them.

    I tried using different pointers (Black, White, Black small, etc)

    Also tried using troubleshooting the software changes, sfc /scannow, clean registry with ccleaner, rebooting (many times).

    It seems to be a problem with no concrete solution.

    The only solution that I found is (Clt-Alt-Del) it changes the screen and the pointer appears again, if I lock the computer it is gone once more.

    If somebody can help i would appreciate it.

    restart your laptop and instead of swiping to unlock or anything like that just click on the touchpad or mouse.
