How to set Aero-Red as default cursor:
Notice when you start the pc, the default white cursor is always used. That's because installed cursor themes are per user.
It's possible to set the red cursor as default: globally used by the system. That way it will always be shown even before you login.
Extract the zip below and run the registry file associated with the normal, large or extra-large version (pick the one you need to be set as default). To switch back to original default cursor, run the default-aero-cursor reg file.
