Thank you, BDAqua. This is the same thing that comes with Mac, is it not? I've found that the curosr pixelates too much. I prefer something with more of a slightly rounded tip. The pointed tip just gets me into windows that I don't want to be in when multi-tasking. Thanks again.

I like to use:
Mouse Locator (free download)
I like this Mouse Locator Graphic

Thank you, Bob. I will give that a try. But the problem isn't really trying to locate my curosr. The problem is that the tip is so small. I need a larger tip to sort of "grab" at specific points.

Mouse Locator just uses a .png file stored in /Users/YourShortUserName/Pictures/MouseLocator.png, which you could create to be whatever you want, then configure Mouse Locator to stay on all the time.

Thanks, Bob. I was thinking of giving it a try and that sounds like a great solution, but, I just read some reviews on Mighty Mouse and getting it to work with Snow Leopard by installing APE. After reading some disturbing reviews, I'm now concerned that any third party software/app will harm my system. Would Mouse Locator be considered a haxie?

No, Mouse Locator is not a haxie.
I have been running it for years without any problems from at least 10.4 (Tiger), through Leopard, and Snow Leopard. I have not run Lion yet, but I do not see any reason it would misbehave their either. I run it on MacBooks, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, iMacs, Mac minis, etc...
Give it a try.

The System Preferences -> Mouse Locator preferences has
[X] Activate Mouse Locator
Option, as well as you can just Control-Click on the Mouse Locator preference icon and delete it.
