    Mouse pointer doesn't appear after restart


    so i have had to do a system restore on my desktop 2 times because the msft update rendered my windows 8 desktop useless unless in safe mode, THEN it showed my mouse pointer. the unifying software shows the little orange unifying logo every time i move my mouse, but no pointer. so i just disabled msft updates. on the laptop, it's my friends and his mousepad/trackpad died so i gave him my old mx anywhere k360 keyboard and tried to pair it with the software, SAME issue. i'm not going to system restore his laptop but i believe the mouse that's on my desktop is the 810 gaming mouse? can't remember, it cost me $100 though. basically my question is, is: what is causing this and how do i fix this? it's EXTREMELY annoying i had to do a system restore twice and now it's happening on my friends laptop. Help please!

    Update: i disabled windows updates and restarted my computer because i installed a program. when it booted, again, no mouse pointer again, so it's not the windows update. so i had to do a system restore again....idk what's going on???

    Its a Logitech mx performance mouse and a mx anywhere mouse, not an Asus. I tried updating the drivers for both an updating the setpoint software; same result, a system restore.
