Since I've installed Dawnguard and Hearthfire, when ever I do an Alt-Tab and come back to the game I get the windows cursor and the game cursor. And both are not sync over each other so it's kind of annoying. How can I fix this bug ?

This can also occur without these mods installed :/. – Peter David Carter-Poulsen Jun 8 at 10:08

Hit Esc before minimizing Skyrim, that way the Windows cursor won't show up after maximizing the game.

There is now a mod to fix the double-cursor bug: Double Cursor Fix at Skyrim Nexus.
