    The hourglass is constantly flickering on and off. This
    is not happening while waiting for another page to
    downlaod or other normal activities in which in the
    hourglass indicates that you have to wait, this is
    happening while you are sucessfully on your page online
    or off. If anyone can help me with this it would be
    greatly appreciated.

  2. Only in Internet Explorer? If it was Word, I'd say that the printer driver
    was the likely culprit.

    Use Performance Monitor (perfmon) to plot a graph showing the CPU usage of
    all the processes on the system. See if heavy CPU use of a particular
    process corresponds with the cursor flickering.

    Details on how to use Performance Monitor are in Windows Help.
