I recently get a little blue rotateing circle next to my arrow from the mouse.. It looks like it is a search thing..  It goes on for a few seconds and goes out.. when I move the mouse ( arrow ) to a new location, it goes on again..  anyone else have this and how to get rid of it.....

 

                                                                                                               Thanks     sodi

I assume we are talking about windows. I have not seen this before but the first thing I recommend is a cold reboot and see if it goes away.  The computer could be having a memory issue.

You can go into set-ups I think and there are all kinds of pointers and options to use there. Most I found are hard to aim in right spot. Thinking there is place to shut-off that circle thing. Not sure how it got put on tho.

you can change it to the hour glass , that's just as irritating ,flush out all the unwanted crap and do a defrag that might speed things up.

A cold boot is when you shut down the computer all the way down.  A warm boot is when you just hit the restart button, the hardware never looses electrical power.  On a cold boot, if I'm having an issue I will shut the power to the computer off and wait a few seconds then turn the power back on and boot the computer.

 

A flush is when you use either a malware or a performance tool to scan and clean the system.  Examples would be Spybot or CCleaner.  The Windows OS has never been very good at cleaning up after it's self.  It leaves all kinds of files in the temp folder, taking up HDD space, and entries in the registry that are no longer needed.  Plus historically has not been able to manage memory very well.  So you have to go behind windows and clean up it's mess, just as you do kids.
