I am using the Mac cursors. What I did was, once remapped every cursor activity to Mac ones, I saved the cursor theme. Once done, I reverted back to original and then again selected the saved Mac cursor theme.
This theme doesnt change everytime I restart.

I solved it, i had to copy the folder containing the cursors to the Windows/cursors folder and name the theme the same. i have the mac cursors also and thats how it was setup. thanks for the idea
