Block Windows 7 Themes From Changing Mouse Pointers And Icons

Windows 7 gives users more freedom in creating and distributing custom Windows 7 themes. A theme in Windows 7 is made up of various elements that include a desktop background, sounds, window colors, screen , mouse pointers and desktop icons. All of these elements can be changed by Windows 7 themes.
Some users might prefer that themes do not change the mouse pointers or desktop icons by default. Microsoft has – thankfully – added the means to block Windows 7 themes from changing mouse pointers and desktop icons in Windows 7. The items can be blocked individually, here is how you do it:
The easiest way to access both options is to right-click the Windows 7 desktop. This opens a context menu with the Personalize link at the bottom. Clicking that link will lead to the Personalization control panel menu with links to desktop icon and mouse pointer settings in the left sidebar.
