Pointer has suddenly turned white.

  1. Hello there,
    After a ending good session on Doom 3 I noticed that my pointer on win xp had turned white as opposed to the 3D bronze that it should have been. I then attempted to change it back only to get a message saying that the 3D bronze file is either missing or corrupt. This has baffled me beyond belief, and I would really appreciate any pointers (hehe get it?) on how to change my cursor back to 3D bronze.
    Thanks. :mad:

    Use the 3d white? :p
    nah heres a fix

    To fix this problem:

    1. Insert the Windows XP CD.

    2. Open a CMD.EXE window.

    3. Type the following commands, pressing Enter after each line:

    expand <Drive:>\i386\*.cu_ %SystemRoot%\Cursors
    rename %SystemRoot%\Cursors\*.cu_ *.cur
    expand <Drive:>\i386\*.an_ %SystemRoot%\Cursors
    rename %SystemRoot%\Cursors\*.an_ *.ani

    Has anything else corrupted though?
