well there used to be...  A coworker once told me that ms got rid of the hand icon because mischievous developers
would whip out their resource editors and erase half of each finger but leave the middle one whole ;-)

If you need one (whole hand intact), there are many free icon libs on the web!

You can use the following code to load hand cursor
CString strWndDir;
GetWindowsDirectory(strWndDir.GetBuffer(MAX_PATH), MAX_PATH);
strWndDir.ReleaseBuffer();

strWndDir += _T("\\winhlp32.exe");
// This retrieves cursor #106 from winhlp32.exe, which is a hand pointer
HMODULE hModule = LoadLibrary(strWndDir);
if (hModule) {
    HCURSOR hHandCursor = ::LoadCursor(hModule, MAKEINTRESOURCE(106));
    if (hHandCursor)
        m_hLinkCursor = CopyCursor(hHandCursor);
}
FreeLibrary(hModule);
