    How do you uninstall Parallels? I'm exploring the package contents and do not see an uninstaller.

    Mac Finder > Applications > drag Parallels to trash.

    @MattF1 thanks a lot for sharing info about reinstalling Parallels Desktop as an solution for the issue. But as I understand your mouse still flicking?
    @RyanS8 what about you? Does the Parallels re-installation help you?

    Currently on Mojave 10.14.4 Beta (18E174f) and no flicker. But it will probably not last ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The uninstall / reinstall worked! Fingers crossed this holds. FYI I'm running Parallels 11.2.3. Thanks for the help!

    It just flickers once, no big deal as there is no impact on the mouse click actually getting registered. I consider my issue resolved.

    I'm sad to report back that after two days, my cursor flickering issue has returned.

    I am also having the same issue (and have for a while). I only came here because it recently started getting excruciatingly slow (5-8 seconds until I can use the cursor). I'm running Parallels 14.1.1, Windows 10 (latest), Mojave 10.14.3. I tried everything on this post, and the only thing that helped was reinstalling parallels (not parallels tools).

    The sad news is, the flickering still persists, however it flickers much quicker so it is less noticeable and becomes usable in about 1-2 seconds.

    Update: it appears that the CPU (or graphics?) usage of the guest OS affects the speed of the flicker.. while in use, I'm still seeing the flickering for 3-5 seconds.

    I am having this same exact problem. It is basically halting all my work in Windows. I use Parallels to run AutoCAD LT in Windows 10. It was working fine until about a week ago. Now whenever I start up a VM session, AutoCAD is basically useless because the mouse continuously flickers between Mac and Windows cursor.

    - I upgraded to the newest version of Parallels.
    - I un-installed and re-installed Parallels
    - I un-installed and re-installed Parallels Tools
    - I changed the mouse settings to both "Auto-detect for Games" and "Don't optimize for games"
    - I changed the mouse settings inside Windows per ticket 116990. (Make from standard windows scheme to another, does not fix. Change back, does not fix.)

    Please help! I cannot use Parallels VM at all to do any work with this issue!
