Hi, I have strange problem with .cur icons in cursor folder, just to let you know I don't have any virus on PC or anything like that he is clean on startup and everything is clean. When I enter cursor folder in {Hard Disk letter}\Program file(x86)\Windows\Cursors some icons show normal pictures but some of them took some picture from other programs like Photoshop, Fireworks or something like that, I tried to go in control panel mouse and tried to change some of my cursors, and in window that opens to choose cursor, all cursors are showing normal, but only when I enter in Cursor folder from windows explorer that strange icon change thing happend, I mean I don't have any problems or malfunctions in windows, just when I enter in that folder cursor pictures on some icons are not look like as they should look. Here is screenshot so you can better understand what my problem is. I tried to clear icon cache and it worked for day or two but after that it was happening again I even created MaxCachedIcons and put it 2048 in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and clear icon cache after that two, and it's still the same. Any idea how to restore that to always be normal looking ?

Hello Thermaltake, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this is only happening with your .cur files, you might see if downloading the .reg file for the list CUR option in the tutorial below may help.
Default File Type Associations - Restore
Afterwards, rebuild the icon cache again.

I tried you method but I didn't help, I find that problem on my brothers computer two, he also have win 7 64 bit like me, maybe thats some bug ni windows or something, I read somewhere that some guy convert them all to .bmp files or something like that and that helped him with that, I mean icons were showing normal after that convertion.

You don't want to convert them to .bmp files. Doing so will have them no longer work for your pointer since it uses .cur files.

Just as a test, create a new account, log on to it, and see if it's doing the same in it.
