I have always hated the standard cursors that come with any version of Windows so I bought a second party software namely Cursor XP from Stardock. I finally got it to work in 7. The standard settings in 7 do not allow you to mirror your mouse, ( switch it from pointing left to pointing right.) Me personally I have my task bar on the right of my display and I want my pointer to point to the right. After all I am right handed. Well I am happy to report that I was able to install CursorXP on 7 and after fuxing with it for a couple of minutes I was successful.
