Windows 7: why does this little rotating aqua blue ring appear when my pc freezes

Try doing the following:
If you want to speed up your Shut Down, there is a Tutorial here

Just before Cleaning via CCleaner, run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter.

I would download and open CCleaner and use CCEnhancer for more features. Then go to the Clean Tab, Analyze and run the Cleaner. Next go to Tools (NEVER GO TO REGISTRY) and select Startup, select them all and select Disable and then Remove.

Then click on CCleaner's Uninstall Tab and remove anything you don't need or use. Ask here if you are unsure if it is safe to remove or not, or you could Google it.

Next, read this article:
99 ways to Make Your Computer Blazingly Fast

This guide was intended for Windows XP, but I would ignore Step 2, Step 10, Step 11, Step 16, Step 28, Step 37.

Another guide can be found here:
Optimize Windows 7

I would next run an SFC Scan and a Check Disk Scan.

What I do as soon as I get a computer os open MSConfig, select the Boot Tab and select No GUI Boot, this will disable the Boot Animation.

I would also use MSE and Malwarebytes to check for Viruses and Malware.

Win7 with adequate hardware should never hang or bog. However HP's have the worst load of preinstalled crapware and useless factory utilties with better versions built into Win7 itself. This is corruption in and of itself which needs taming or possible clean reinstall of just the OS to unleash it's native performance.

To begin, follow these steps to Clean up factory bloatware.

Most laptops/notebooks do.

Time to do a little housekeeping.

does this have anything to do with windows 7?
Well it is built into win 7 and it means the computer is "busy" possible to little ram.

We might be able to be more help if you told us your system specs including ram.
