My computer is doing the most annoying thing in the world. Everything seems to be functioning perfectly, actually, except that the arrow pointer permanently blinks that little hourglass thingy, even when nothing is loading. It seems to be just a quick flash about once per second. If you don't think that sounds very annoying, you are very wrong. Could somebody please tell me what the devil is wrong and how to fix it before I take out a hammer?

i call background process.

hit alt+ctrl+del and hit the processes tab, google those, end anything you don't need. see which one eventually makes the blinking stop.

Closed out of everything and no change. Anyway, I figured out that after leaving the computer alone for awhile, it stopped blinking, but I could no longer open any programs. So I restarted, and now I know that it's something in AIM causing the problem because it started up once I opened it. This time it stopped when I closed AIM. Last time it didn't.

Original PrankstA, you are the most worthless form of life I have seen lurking about this BBS for a long, long time. You're even worse than ::SMASH::, wishomie, the_offsprings_monkey, Italia311, and EROS. Nothing would make me happier than to never see you post again. You've never contributed anything to this board. Not knowing anything else, I'd assume that you were about 10, but knowing that you're like 21, you come across as one of those former high school football players who doesn't go anywhere and becomes an obese alcoholic, the only pleasure in your life consisting of drunk night driving in your friend's pickup truck with baseball bats out the window slugging people's mailboxes, and shouting "FAGGOT" at anyone who yells at you or threatens to call the cops. OK, now that I've vented that, you're ignore listed. Whew.

Mods, can't you just delete all his posts?

And barangatang: What you're doing right now isn't even funny. Don't encourage him.
