    Try using Mouse Properties to change it?  Others can at least activate the flashing concentric circles accessibility aid so they know where it is by pressing a Ctrl- key.   Also, it appears that some laptops have a function key which is designed to hide the pointer, e.g. when watching movies.   Perhaps your model has such a tool you could toggle?

     
    BTW a better term to use to search for additional help with this symptom is Pointer.

     
    Good luck

  • Is your mouse still listed in device manager?  If so, you can go to properties > Driver and click on roll back driver if the update installed a new driver.
