The torch is usually an indication that the pc is busy, does the contents of my computer come up after a while if left?

Or an hour glass alonside the cursor?

If you have XP, hit Control+Alt+Delete - you will get a panel display indicating the running proccesses. This will reveal what is actually running at the moment.

You can either highlight a process and then End Task or right click on the green icon in the Notification bar and select Close to shut down the panel.

What windows are you running

When you say enter the "my computer" do you mean from the desktop or from the start menu

The torch means that the computer can not find what its was looking for and is now searching all your folders and files for the nearest match
