Emacs may have detected some sort of assistive device (like screen magnifier, 
or a screen reader) active at the time of startup the first time.

When such software is detected, Emacs uses a native Windows cursor so that the 
assistive software can track the cursor properly and do its job.
The variables that control the look of Emacs cursor do not work when the native 
Windows cursor is being used.
