Mouse Cursor Change Won't Stay Permanent

I'm not sure what the issue is but I can go in and change the mouse cursors and everything works until I restart the computer. Then it immediately reverts back to the default Windows 7 Aero cursor. When I go back in the cursors settings it has my settings listed but I have to hit "Ok" and then it's fine again. Why is it reverting after a restart or shutdown?

I think I fixed it. Apparently mouse cursors must be in the "Cursors" subfolder within "Windows." If you try to use the "browse" and have them stored elsewhere it doesn't work. Hopefully, it will stay fixed.

I'm experiencing the same issue, but every time I try to paste a few cursors into that folder, I get the big error of "Destination Folder Access Denied." :??:  Any other tips on how to make this work? It's SO tedious to change back my cursors every time I reboot the machine.
