    Control Panel -> Mouse -> Pointers

    If it won't accept it, perhaps the file is corrupt...
    If you notice all the XP "3D White" etc. cursors are gone.
    So, I'm thinking they did something strange.

    No promises, but you might give these a try...
    They're the original XP cursor set.

    Well that sucks... Can't you bypass the security for a few seconds? Honest... it's just cursors.

    no i can't
    i can't even kill the damn process
    i type taskkill /f /im egui.exe and it just won't killed
    only in win7 i have this problem
    it seems like It's not possible to kill the kernel process for security reasons.
    can u give me the original url u got this cursors from?

    LOL... that would be one of the machines on my lan. I just zipped them up from XP's Cursors folder.

    Hmmmm... know anyone who could download it and put it on a flash drive for you?

    Probably just ONE more good reason to keep XP handy!

    And maybe even a replacement for nod32? Eh?

    My extensive, custom, HOSTs file blocks many web sites and addresses, but the "Hosts Manager" program lets me shut off the hosts file so I can go to any web site, anywhere, with NO problems, or download anything I want.

    Just a thought!

    OT

    That's not an ISP's function!
    It's pretty well up to you and your computer, what web sites you choose to visit.

    Then, my friend, you need a new ISP... Where you go and what you do is none of their business.
