bug in windows 7 is frustrating

hi guys i have found this bug windows 7

try this and leave a comment if you have it click on the sound lcon in the taskbar and does the cusor load and the circle spin? for a couple of seconds or up to a minute mine does and my dads laptop does it as well.

is there a solution or will i have to wait until service pack 1 when a lot of windows 7 bugs are fixed?

edit: also it has recently started doing this as the other laptop was not doing yesterday and today is does?

I couldn't say I haven't noticed the circle, but if I blinked I'd miss it.

It doesn't last that long for me, like I said, if I blinked I'd miss it, so it's not even a split second really.

I get the "Wait Cursor" for a fraction of a second, and I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Seeing as this is a problem that shows up when you click the sound icon, it could be driver related. Have you tried updating your sound card drivers?

yes i have tried update the realtek drivers but now i am using the default microsoft sound driver and tried updating that on the other laptop running windows 7 (it came with it pre-installed) and it has the same problem so i susspect its a common bug.

I do see the wait cursor for a fraction of a second but I fail to see how this is a bug.

fraction of a second here too. If you wouldn't have pointed it out, i wouldn't have noticed the circle at all.

Maybe your virusscan or some other program stealing resources?
