    change cursor


    I'd like to change the appearance of the cursor. I went to control panel/mouse. After clicking it said it couldn't find this long file and needed mks.msi. Any idea what to do?

    You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help if it's a corrupted system file at fault.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Got it solved. I uninstalled the mouse and keyboard program and reinstalled it and now I can change cursors.
