    Pointer & circle next to it keeps showing up


    Please help
    After I have installed Win *, everything was fine until yesterday when I start up, I notice where the Pointer is, every few seconds the circle will show up and roate a few seconds before disappearing again. This happens every few seconds, Its irratating and if we point at the Bookmark area, when this shows up the bookmark section disappear.
