i will post my a screenshot of my desktop pretty soon

anyway, thanks for your reply Minotar, is good to know the method for future use...

I am not familar with that theme, but the files should be .cur, if i remember correctly, if you right click on the folder or file, you may see a install or merge at the top of the list.

You could also add them to your cursor folder in C:\Windows \Cursor, once you have done that, go to personlise on your desktop, on the lefthand side, you will see Change Mouse Pointer, go into browser and select folder or file.

I think this is what your looking for.
Copy image>open paint>paste>drag backround in until it fits>save as BMP file.
Then its ready.
