$RegCursors = $RegConnect.OpenSubKey("Control Panel\Cursors", $true)
$RegCursors.SetValue("", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("AppStarting", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Arrow", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Crosshair", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Hand", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Help", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("IBeam", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("No", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("NWPen", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Scheme Source", 0, 'DWord')
$RegCursors.SetValue("SizeAll", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("SizeNESW", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("SizeNS", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("SizeNWSE", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("SizeWE", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("UpArrow", "")
$RegCursors.SetValue("Wait", "")
