Hi and welcome

We could use your system specs to help you. Please fill them in as well as you can. They are in the lower left corner of your posts

The "blue circle" is the windows busy cursor. It can be caused by too little ram, too many apps open or a problem with the system.

Right click the taskbar>performance tab>click the memory tab on top to sort for mas ram using apps on top. Take a screen shot of it using the buil tin snipping tool (type snipping in search) > and upload it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a paperclip) in the reply form

Maybe this sounds weird, but I like the classic cursors and I want the cursor to stay the same whether it's showing a background or busy activity. I tried to capture the cursor and edit it with AWicons, but when I set it, the entire cursor just dissapears when I launch an app for example. But...
