I'm assuming you've done this
and are wondering why before you logon that the Aero Cursors aren't there right away?
When you logon, Windows loads your personal settings - wallpaper, screensaver, theme, cursors
. As what you did in the above tutorial was change it for your account, that is the only place you will use the cursors. For example: I am using XP and I have the Vista Aero cursors installed (and Mac OS X ones too) and when I logon, it will say "Loading your personal settings..." and then my mouse will change.
There really is no reason for that less than 60 seconds logon time that you need the Aero cursors until you actually logon.
If you REALLY wanted to have the Aero Cursors, see if this works:
a .zip file with the cursors in it (if the tutorial include them, then you're fine, if not, Google for them)
them somewhere (such as C:\Windows\Cursors\Aero)
3) Open up the Mouse
Applet in Control Panel
, click the Cursor
the scheme with the standard (non-aero)
5) Go through and replace
each one with its Aero counterpart
the scheme with the same name.
No need to backup as the normal cursors are still on your computer.
Hope this helps.
