Hey adblock user! Would you mind whitelisting us? We don't run pre-roll or even post-roll adverts on our videos and it would really help us cover our costs. Without advertising revenue we couldn't bring you any content and we really don't feel our ads spoil the site at all. Thank you!
Additional notes – As mentioned in the video, many cursor/pointer packs come bundled as zip files. Not confident working with zip files? This page explains a little more about them.
Cursor FX – Some cursor packages on customize.org require Cursor FX to be installed. Cursor FX is a special program that takes cursor customization to a whole new level. We take a look at this great utility in this tutorial.
Running a limited user account? Lots of the pointer schemes designed for Windows XP which provide a scheme.inf file for installation do not install correctly when using limited user accounts. They will appear to install correctly but then will not show up in the list of pointer schemes. To get around this limitation, temporarily make your limited account into an administrator account, install the pointer scheme then change your account back again. See our user accounts tutorial if you can’t remember how to do this.
