Windows 7: Windows Vista/7 "Working In Background/"Busy" Cursor NO

Windows Vista/7 "Working In Background/"Busy" Cursor NO

Title is supposed to say that it is NOT animated.

I recently purchased a Dell Studio 1737 direct from Dell.

Every time I turn on my laptop and log into my account, there would be a blue, animated circle cursor indicating that the laptop was just turned on and that it is working in the background.

Later on however, I noticed that whenever there were programs working in the background, my cursor shows a blue circle with a light in it, but it wouldn't be animated. This usually happens about 15 minutes after the laptop has turned on. I'm assuming that the cursor SHOULD be animated just like how it was during start-up.

I tried switching the pointers (eg. aero large to aero regular) and it seemed to solve the problem (i think), but after a while, the circle becomes frozen again; I am faced with the same issue. I tried downloading and installing different cursor sets (from DeviantART), and the ones that WERE animated in ANYWAY, were also frozen after a couple minutes.

I'm wondering if anybody else has had this problem and would greatly appreciated it if they provided a solution.

I'm using a 64-bit 7 Home Premium with ATI Radeon HD 3650.

Thanks in advance!

I would call Dell tech support.

If you had done an in-place Upgrade from Vista, I would wonder if it was some bug transferred and suggest a clean install.

But since it is a new Windows 7 computer from Dell, they need to make it good for ya.
