    I switched back to Windows XP from Windows 7 recently for a few reasons, I'm having trouble with the mouse cursor though and find it doesn't move exactly the same as it does in Windows 7. It's a little hard to describe, but in Windows 7 I felt like it took less effort to move the cursor around and get it to stop where I want. Windows XP feels different to me, again it's difficult to describe. Am I crazy or does anyone know what I'm talking about? If so, is there a way to make it more like Windows 7?

    Have you tried adjusting the mouse in the control panel?

    It probably has something to do with DX9 vs DX11. Or Aero desktop. So its not going to act like it did in Windows 7

    I figured out what was causing it, in the Pointer Options tab, "Enhance pointer precision" was checked, unchecking it made it much better and felt the same as Windows 7.
