Windows 7: Freezing busy cursor

Freezing busy cursor

This is a slight annoyance that seems to keep popping back up.

The cursor that turns to a teal circle when busy freezes after using the computer for like 3 minutes.

I don't know why this happens, but cycling the cursor scheme temporarily fixes it.

This is the cursor I'm talking about: Windows 7 “busy” cursor misses a beat - istartedsomething

Does anyone know what the problem is?

I'm having the same problem on my wife's laptop. The computer boots just fine, but anywhere from 3 minute to 3 hours, the curser will go "busy" and programs will start to say "not responding". CTL-ALT-DLT won't work, nothing does anything. Left it overnight once, still stuck in the morning. The only way I got it to go away was by manually powering down. Then on reboot, about half the time it wants to run scan-disk. Then, if I do anything, it freezes again. Not sure where to go from here, but I"m about to throw the thing through the wall. I built my desktop myself...figured I'd try a "brand" name...yup, big mistake. Never again will I buy a computer that I don't build myself. Running a Dell Inspiron 1545, Intel Duo-core with 4gb of ram. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
