I followed all steps to change my cursor to one from my game (a sword) and it works fine as long as I don't shut down.After shutting down and restart the next day I have to change because its back to win7 cursor and I have to change it again. Any Ideas

Hello Mdboy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It may be a issue with having to save your theme after changing the mouse pointer. Also see if setting it where themes cannot change the mouse pointer may help as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have the same exact problem. I changed all my mouse pointers, unchecked the box that says Allow themes to change mouse pointers, saved the theme, clicked apply and OK, and every time I restart my computer I have to go back into the control panel - personalization and click OK again to bring back my saved scheme.

Hello DarthMauler, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You saved the Mouse pointers theme, but did you also save your complete Windows 7 theme in Personalization?

yes. I saved my theme after changing my sound scheme, mouse pointers, and desktop theme pictures. But I still have the problem. This is the only little annoyance I have with Windows 7. Everything else seems to work fine.

I'm afraid that I'm not sure why it keeps resetting on you like this either.

Hi, I have changed my cursors successfully using the control panel method in as I did in XP. The only problem is that whenever I log out or reboot the cursor resets itself to the standard Windows Aero. I have tried turning off "Allow themes to change cursors". This doesn't work, nor does changing the cursor and saving the theme with the "Allow themes to change cursors" option on. I'm not entirely sure why htis keeps happening, it's quite annoying and I've had this problem since I first got 7.

Hello Kjell,

As a test to see if it's just with this user account, create a new administrator account to see if the new mouse pointers will stick in it.
