Windows 7: Themepack mouse pointers don't stick

26 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Themepack mouse pointers don't stick

I created a Tinkerbell themepack complete with icons and pointers for my daughter. Of course she was happy.

Two problems.

First one is that after reboot, the pointers revert to the default. I found something online that said that they needed to be copied into c:\windows\pointers but that didn't fix the problem.

The second one is related to the Recycle Bin icon. With anything other than the default icon, it doesn't change to the empty one upon emptying the recycle bin unless I hit F5 to refresh.

Any suggestions?
