I'm getting a new optical mouse, but i know i will have the same problem because i had tried 3 mice. It did it on my last 2 mice and my current borrowedo ne.

When you "click" the scroller down on a mouse, a white circle with black outline usually comes up, and u can go up/down. In 98 it was quite nice, not pixelated and all very good.

Now im on XP, it is HORRIFICLY UGLY. The white circle has black crazy pixelated shadow and no real outline, there are a few black dots around the circle, in all, VERY UGLY. So much i despise using it (i usually always use it).

Is there any way i can change the scroll picture, or return it to how 98 displayed it? its so ugly on xp...i'd love a proper 32-bit alpha one too ;)

Try going to your System Properties from the Control Panel, and under one of the tabs (forgotten which one), there is a button to open performance properties. Deselect the shadow under cursor option. This might take away some of the blackness.
