A CUR file is a cursor image or animation used for the Windows mouse pointer. It may be an arrow (for general use), a spinning hourglass (for waiting periods), or an I-bar (for text editing). Custom desktop themes (.THEME files) may change the cursor image/animation, such as turning the hourglass into a watch.
