Windows 7: Blinking Mouse Cursor and 6% Processor use

Blinking Mouse Cursor and 6% Processor use

I upgraded to Win-7 64 bit and now my mouse cursor blinks with the busy icon about every 6 seconds. I also see the processor is running at a constant 4% to 6%.

When I had Vista the solution was to disable the HD Audio device and it solved the problem. Now this isn't working at all.

I also installed a new video card: ATI Radeon HD 5770.

Any ideas on what to try?

I uninstalled the realtek Audio drivers and my processor use dropped to 1%.

My sound seems to be working fine. So what does the realtek audio do then?

I still have the damn mouse blinking every 6 seconds. It is really annoying as hell!
