    Animated Hourglass (Cursor Hourglass)

    When I had Win 98se I had a animated hourglass that worked with my cursor.

    Now that I have XP there is no separate option to have that animated hourglass.

    Is there a program that I can download so that I can have that same hour glass again.

    I have tried the animated system in XP but it changes my cursor.

    Edited by HansV to reduce picture in size - please don't post pictures larger than 640x480 pixels.
    If I understand you correctly, if you go to control panel, appearances and themes, and look at mouse pointers, can you set what you want from there as in screen shot?

    No I cannot get what I want from the CP>mouse software in XP.

    Win 98 se used to have an animated hourglass that I really liked and it is a shame that they did not install it with XP.

    I have searched Google but haven't found any soft ware that I can add to my mouse software.

    I have a Pointer scheme on my XP pro system titled Windows Animated that looks like the one from Windows 98 (but it's been soooo long). Could this be what you are looking for ???
