Windows 7: mouse pointer switch to default after reboot

mouse pointer switch to default after reboot

Hi,
I changed my mouse pointers but when I reboot they switch back to the default ones. In the mouse property, they still appear as the custom ones. I have to change at least one again and hit apply to get again all the custom pointers.

What's wrong ?

Thanks,
Tex

Did you put the custom cursors in the C:\Windows\Cursors folder? How are you applying them, through windows?

if by any chance you are using custom cursor,simple solution is to put the cursors on the cursors folder which mentioned by A Guy
