    flashing blue circle


    Following Windows updates 10/03/2016 and subsequent restart, I had a blue circle constantly flashing next to the mouse pointer as if the system was waiting for a task to complete. I checked various forums for a solution and tried some of the suggested remedies - none of them worked. Today, 12/03/2016, I decided to login to Skype. Lo-and-behold, the constant blue circle has gone away! Don't know why although I suspect perhaps a hung, stopped or suspended process was restarted with Skype.

  3. Spinning blue circle next to mouse pointer

    This is an incredibly frustrating issue. I do a lot of screen capture recordings and I can't have my mouse arrow popping up a blue circle every 4 to 5 seconds. I'm not sure exactly when this started for me, but now that I'm ready to do some more recording
    I'm noticing it constantly.

    Here's a solution I've found to at least stop the blue circle:

    • Start with the Microsoft suggestion of going to the mouse properties.
    • Click on the "Pointers" tab.
    • Select the "Working In Background" pointer and click on "Browse"
    • Select the first mouse arrow option (the one that looks like a normal mouse arrow)
    This doesn't get rid of whatever is causing the system to have to keep working in the background, but it will at least make the blue circle stop popping up.

  4. Flashing circles and crazy mouse

    Mouse pointer constantly has a wait circle.

    Hello Denise,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    To resolve this issue we need some information. Let us know the following.


    • Which Office application do you face this issue with?

    • Do you have the issue with all Office application or one or two?

    Try opening one of your Office 2013 applications in the Safe Mode to check if an Add-In in the Office applications causes the issue.

    Open Excel 2013 in the Safe Mode and check if you still have the mouse pointer flashing issue.

    Follow the steps as suggested in the following Microsoft Article to open Excel 2013 applications in the Safe Mode:

    http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/s...t-my-office-2013-application-HA104011864.aspx

    Note: The above article lists steps for all Microsoft Office 2013 application/s, however, follow the steps to open the applications/programs in the Safe Mode for which you are experiencing the issue – in your case Excel 2013.
    You may also follow the same steps to open other Office 2013 applications in Safe Mode.

    Once Excel have been opened in the Safe Mode, check if the mouse pointer still flashes or stops flashing.

    Hope the above information helps.

    Thank you.
