I posted this already but since I got no answer perhaps I am not being clear.
When I am on the internet the eggtimer appears beside the arrow and flicks on and off madly and I am unable to perform whatever function I am engaged in.It's happening when I am logged on to Ryanair and BMI.(I am however able to exit).This happens intermittently and started recently.

Not sure. I always thought hourglass means computer busy at minute. Sometimes get it when I am downloading virus protection and maybe Windows update is trying to access at same time and it is as if Norton is saying hold on a mo.

Thanks for replying.I ran the Microsoft/Internet repair bit it was no good. However by chance I think I've sstumbled across the problem. I clicked on the search icon by accident and my screen returned to normal i.e the bit at the side disappeared.
