Safe custom mouse pointers

My first PC (way back in 2000!) had lots of custom pointers, such as one that was a snake, dinosaurs, some sort of musical themed one.  They were pre-installed, so I assume they were standard, but no PC I have owned since has had them.

I can see a million sites to download new pointers online, but most I am guessing will be riddled with spyware and virus'.

Anyone know where I can get some custom designs?

it is just finding them!

If you go through the control panel to the mouse, there is a tab called pointers.

The pointers they show vary depending on which scheme you are looking at and I still have a scheme called dinosaurs!

If you concentrated on what you were doing you wouldn't worry what pointer you were using - LOL

Have just looked here on  my laptop and I have the same but I have found the folder with the cursors in.

I will try and send you both the dinosaur to copy intot the folder later when I am back on my desktop, after I have tested it on here of course so I know I won't corrupt your computers

have tested them and managed to make the dinosaur run on my windows 7 laptop - so how do we get the file to you?

Is there a way to add an attachment to these posts or a pm?

I could show you where to get a lovely set of dragon pointers. But then again, perhaps not ;)
