Just to be on the safe side, I wouldn't. I once downloaded one of these similar programs (it was the smiley one), and it ended up infecting my computer and allowing all of these previously blocked viruses into the system. I abide by this rule; if a program is in an ad, don't download it. What happened to me was this:
1. I downloaded the program with no problems.
2. Shortly after, I began having all of these pop-up ads and "redirect" ads flood my computer. I checked my computer security system, and it listed no intruders.
3. I did a little experiment, and it turns out that these programs, when you download them, by granting that ONE program access to your computer, you end up allowing other add-on programs/ads/viruses access to your computer. That's why no intruders showed up on my computer, because I had unknowingly granted access to them by downloading the one program.

This may have just been my computer, but I know for a fact that my security system is very strong, and while it did not cause my computer to be completely infected, it did cause several issues, so imagine what it would do to a computer with a weaker security system.

I would strongly recommend not downloading it. A few flashy mouse cursors are NOT worth some strange program having access to all of your personal files. I hope this helps!

I've used cursor mania for over a year, and I love it! I've never had any problems with my computer, so I'm pretty sure it's safe to download. It's a great program and every cursor is awesome! Get to downloading and make your cursor something awesome!

P.S. My current cursor is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! St. Patrick's Day is coming up!

My friend downloaded that and also was using the site, iconator, and our computer crashed from a virus. Not sure which site it was from, so I'm not sure I would download it if I were you.

Default Re: Cursor Mania?

Cursor Mania isn't really that safe, to tell you the truth. I downloaded it once, and it gave me a virus a few days later that completely destroyed my entire computer.........so, to be safe, I wouldn't download Cursor Mania, or Smiley Central, too, for that matter.

I would just not use it. Many people say it isn't safe. I would just stay on the safe side and not use it.

I'd be safe, and not. I downloaded it before, and it crashed my computer. It also gives you a bunch of other bad stuff that gives your computer a virus. Alot of people say it's safe, but alot say it's not, so as my mom would say "better be safe then sorry".
