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

for anywhere from 5-10 seconds my computer will freeze & this little rotating aqua blue ring will appear. then the screen (browser that i have open) blinks & returns to normal.

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.

Several ways

If you give us the make and model we can look up the standard configuration.

Also there are 3rd party applications (free) that can gather all the information for you.

Make and model is probably the fastest

Start menu (), Right click on "Computer" and select "properties." Make, model, processor, ram, operating system, etc. is all there.

I can't believe that you missed the part where he said it was busy for 5-10 seconds and his computer froze, which is a computer issue. Hence the request for the details of the PC
