Windows 7: IBeam cursor-Customization

IBeam cursor-Customization

I'm struggling to substitute IBeam cursor (which appears in Notepad; MS Word and Adobe Acrobat and is too skinny for my taste),(I'm not referring to blinking insertion point) My unsuccessful steps, following this tutorial (Mouse Pointers - Change) from Swan are: 1..Place desired IBeam cursor in: C:\Windows\Cursors.- I presume that there is no need to Unblock the file, because the unblock button is missing. IBeam cursor-Customization-0.jpg 2..Open Registry Editor and In the right pane of Cursors, right click on IBeam IBeam cursor-Customization-1.jpg and type in the full path to the location of my .cur file within quotes, and click on OK. IBeam cursor-Customization-2.jpg 3..Save the new theme. 4..Restart or Log off. 5..Control Panel>Mouse>Pointers- the following error massage appears: IBeam cursor-Customization-3.jpg So i desperately need YOUR help to make IBeam cursor bigger, colourful, and more visible.

I figured out that, the culprit was CursorXP and after uninstalling it, I have got great IBeam cursors in Notepad and MS Word. Nevertheless one issue still remains- Adobe Acrobat stubbornly keeps to its tiny IBeam cursor. So how to deal with Acrobat? Any suggestions?
