Windows 7: Mouse pointer is always blinking. Hundreds of Win explorers generated

Mouse pointer is always blinking. Hundreds of Win explorers generated

My mousepointer blinking and shows green spinning circle, this happens when I move mousepoint over desktop or task bar.

I opened Task Manager and noticed hundreds explorer.exe processes are running, however only one Windows Explorer icon is displayed in the Task Bar.

I guess that some program is always trying to start another instance of Windows Explorer.

How can I trace it? How can I find a program (or a service, event, etc) which causing clogging of my computer?

Thanks

To trace which program started those instances please use Process Explorer by Microsoft's Sysinternals.

I would check for malware too.
You can use free tools like Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool or Malwarebytes etc.
