I'm having a weird issue with the mouse cursors on my Windows 7 system. I use the "Windows Standard (extra large)" scheme, with two custom cursors for "Precision Select" (cross) and "Text Select" (caret). (I do this because I also use mouse trails at its lowest setting to make the pointer easier to see, but the inverting nature of the text and precision cursors means that the original pointer and the trail cancel each other out and I can't see the default cursor at all - hence me changing the cursors.)
I have this new selection saved under a new scheme which I've imaginatively called "My Scheme". The trouble, every time I reboot, the text cursor (I haven't been able to test the precision one yet) goes back to the standard one - and that's the *small* standard one, not the extra large one.
Google tells me that there are other people with the same problem, but the answers given there ranged from making sure "Allow themes to change mouse pointers" is unchecked (I have - it doesn't help) to moving the cursor into C:\Windows\Cursors, which I really don't feel I should need to do - if that's what's needed, then it's a bug in Windows. (Although judging from the responses I've seen, that particular solution does work. I haven't tried it yet, though, because I'd kinda hoped not to have to do that.)
Does anybody know of an alternative solution?
