  • Try double clicking the icon to see if it brings up information. If so, then at least it's partially working (and that might get rid of the red x and bring up the cursor information though I'm sure you don't want to have to do that every time you boot if it does work). I'm not sure why it isn't working properly, but I can only propose somewhat drastic measures to fix it (like doing a system repair using the OS CD). It isn't a bug i'm aware of.

    You might also check your system for viruses and spyware (even if you're using something now).  Go to the primary vendor sites and download their free trials and run them all (Symantec, Pandasoft, McAfee, Trend Micro) - then you can be reasonably sure that isn't the problem.
