Some programs disable the desktop cursor shadow without re-enabling it. I'm looking for a solution to automatically enable it, preferably at all times. Perhaps a registry setting that keeps it enabled. Or a program that checks every few seconds whether it is enabled and if not, enables it.

This page discusses the UserPreferencesMask value in the registry, and you can get working code to toggle the cursor shadow state here and here. –  Karan Nov 22 '12 at 18:55
@Karan Not much I can do with code; that would be more appropriate for stackoverflow. I need a working solution I can deploy. –  Core Xii Nov 22 '12 at 20:24
