My computer had this problem once before. Every couple seconds, it would be the regular mouse (i.e. white arrow), but then it would change to a white arrow with the little hour glass next to it. And the hourglass would then disappear, but then reappear in about the next ten seconds.
The last time, I sent my computer to my cousin. He couldn't fix it, so he gave it to his friend. Apparently, there was a lot of spyware installed. Which led me to assume that there's various programs all trying to load at once? I'm not quite sure.
My computer IQ is very low, and I only know how to repair basic things. So if I could get help with this, it would be greatly appreciated. For the 'blinking mouse' as I have started to call it, is annoying me to no end. So help is much loved.
