Hi dupmj23,

Can you please fill out the rest of your System Specs first? Thanks.

Does this happen even fresh after a boot up, with no programs open? Does it happen in Basic themes as well as Aero themes?

Updated as much as I know
Aero themes, after i boot up it has been about 15 minutes since, it has just turned off (20mins after boot).
No programs open, brand new computer. I have only had it 2 weeks, haven't really installed anything on it yet. This only happens in the middle of the screen and doesn't seem to prevent me from doing anything

It sound to me that something is still loading in the background long after reaching desktop. I would do a clean boot:

How to Troubleshoot a Problem by Performing a Clean Startup in Windows 7 or Vista

If the problem disappears, it has to be one of the services or startup programs causing the problem. To find out which, reenable these one at a time until the problem returns. The last services/program reenabled when it returns is the culprit.

Mouse Pointer
Hello, I have Win7 for about a year now and I really didn't have any problems up until a few months ago. My mouse pointer would start refreshing/flickering every 5 minutes or so and it would slow down anything I was watching or playing at the time. It doesn't really bother me when I watch movies...
