It might sound like a bad April Fool’s joke, but it’s not. Some people have problems with a huge Windows 7 cursor appearing on their desktop. As long as you are not above 50, this might be a bit annoying, although it’s quite funny. Luckily, there’s a quick solution for this problem.
Owners of a Radeon 5800 graphic card, who also run Windows 7, might run into this funny cursor bug.

ATI released a hotfix for all of the victims of the huge-Windows-7-cursor-bug:
- Catalyst 9.12 Hotfix for Windows 7 / Windows Vista
- Catalyst 9.12 Hotfix for Windows XP
- Catalyst 9.12 Hotfix for Linux
Huge Cursor Workaround
There are some funny workarounds. One workaround is to run the Windows 7 Magnifier in the background, another is to enable Mouse Pointer trails.
Thank you ATI!
Hopefully, no one is going to have some bad nightmares fighting the huge Windows 7 cursor ;)
Thank you for saving our digital lives ATI god! Hail ATI!
*cough* I know why I’ve been using NVIDIA cards for nearly a decade.
