Both on internet and word processor, the wheel stops me from typing or clicking on a program -- like just now---and interrupts the execution. What do you suggest I do? What do you think causes this? Is there a program I can buy or download to fix this. Thanks.:confused:

What Mac?
What OS version ?

Start /Applications/Utilities/Activity Monitor
Leave it running trying not to cover the window entirely.
When the beach ball happens see it you can see what process is using the most CPU resources.
