Because this only happens in your user account we can be pretty confident it's being caused by something in your user account. Do you know if you've installed any kind of program that would change the way OS X looks, maybe a cursor program..?
You can try Safe Boot as well by restarting your Mac and holding down the Shift key as it boots. Safe mode uses only required kernel extensions and disables login items, as well as emptying some system caches. If the problem doesn't happen in Safe Boot we'll know for sure that it's one of these issues. If it's a login item you can clear these out in System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items. If it's a cache issue these are usually fixed just by going into Safe Boot. If it's a kext that's a little more complicated but I can show you a method to find out which one it is.
