Windows 7: Mouse hourglass always on because of MS Office Clicktorun service

So, in my case, is there an option to have the entire suite downloaded instead of click-to-run? I think that will eliminate the mouse icon issue.

Or does that depend on the type of product that was originally purchased by my company?

Yes the option is one at company level - the older one complete office suite per employee, or the Click-to-Run option - I believe that even with discounted volume licensing the older system can work out at a much higher cost to the majority of companies, and you end up paying, for example, for a copy of access, publisher, and powerpoint on the storeman's PC which will never be used, [except for personal use ]

It may be that the deal your company has made will allow for a number of the older type of licence to cover for remote / out of office workers, where click-to-rum may be a problem due to less than ideal net connections on the road, at home etc. - You may want to check with your systems people if this catagory applies to you, and the resource drain continues

There can also be licensing issues for out of office workers as this is normally controlled by an office "Key" server which regularly checks status of all licences used on machines, and so a standalone licenced install is preferred

I am a private user & as I wanted MS Access I had to purchase MS Office Pro 2013 complete. I could have bought only the office programs I wanted but it worked out cheaper to buy the whole suite, rather than individual ones.

As far as I know all Office 2013 programs are Click to Run, so there is no alternative.

As Barman58 has mentioned it might be wise to use your computer for few days to see whether the mouse issue stops.

Since this thread is near the top of searches on "samsung ssd 850 evo hourglass cursor", note that it can sometimes be resolved by deleting "OfficeFileCache" folders.

For more details, see another thread on this site:
My Mouse Cursor is always Loading

In my case, I deleted two “OfficeFileCache” folders, under both 14.0 and 15.0.
The 15.0 one was at:
“C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\OfficeFileCache”

The folder under 14.0 stayed gone, but the one under 15.0 immediately reappeared… just not bringing the cursor back with it.
