    Lately, and I couldn't say exactly when it started, but I've been having a busy pointer icon (hour glass) stay on the screen when the application is not busy. It only happens within the IE 5.5 frame, not outside. I've been putting up with this for weeks. It is quite annoying.

    The funny thing is, this site does not do it. I can't remember the last time that I was in a web page and the pointer was correct for the activity being performed, but here it is.

    What is so special about this site????

    Just to add to the confusion...now the symptom is here, also. I guse this site is not so special after all. Does anyone know where this is coming from? I have already gone to the control panel/mouse/pointer in windows and re-inforced the defaults...no difference. IE5.5 seems to have its own pointer behavior.

    Sounds like Spyware has been loaded to your system.
    Get freeware program: Spybot Search & Destroy
    Download at http://beam.to/spybotsd

    After installing, immediately go back to website
    to download all updates...

    no other configuration is necessary...
    then run the program on your system.

    fix only the RED checked items, until you have
    defragmented... then you can fix the GREEN
    checked items if you wish.
    I would leave the black checks alone.

    When finished, run IE Repair Tool.
