Cursor coordinates delayed in any Linux

When I boot using a Linux LiveCD (eg Kaspersky Rescue CD, Puppy Linux) the cursor's coordinates are delayed as you can see in the video below.

Do you have any idea of how to repair this problem? Thanks.

I can't see your video, but I presume your issue is because you do not have VMware tools installed.

Why don't you just install linux and VMware tools?

I put the embed code but the window is too small. Here's the link, watch in HD to see the cursor:

Well, I'm experimenting virus cleaning of Windows XP by booting with Kaspersky RescueCD and I can't install vmwaretools in there. And this occurs in every Linux distribution I use to boot from.

Solved by updating from VMware 7 to VMware 8.
