Sometimes the image of the mouse pointer will get corrupted. I can still use the mouse but because the image is corrupted it is somewhat difficult. How can I get the mouse pointer back without logging out?

Edit: I noticed that the mouse corruption goes away when VMPlayer is shut down.

Go to System/Preferences/Appearance,and choose Theme tab,then click Customize... and choose pointer tab,here you can choose the mouse pointer type(or image as you said?).
