    Colored mouse pointers

    Is there any way to get mouse pointers in Win 7 to be colored? I used to use the 'Bronze' one in previous versions of WIndows, but that seems to be gone now. The standard Win 7 ones get lost too easily. I now use CursorFX, but, although quite neat, it involves loading software at boot time and I would rather not do that.
    Regards,
    Peter

    Thanks Zig, tried that a long time ago and again recently, but I cannot see any way to change the color of the pointers there.
    Regards,

    This is not exactly what you want, but does show a method of changing the pointers to a theme.If you find a theme with colored pointers, voila!

    Perhaps this page will show some pointers you like.

    A Google search shows many possibilities.
