Mouse pointer query

Have upgraded my dad's PC to XP, and beside the mouse pointer on screen there is an annoying little flashing symbol of what looks like a CD image.

No other problems but don't know why this appears. Any suggestions?

Do you have a cd in the drive? Sounds like XP is trying to read the disk....TT

Go to control panel/Printers & other Hardware/Mouse and click on the pointers tab. Check to see which scheme has been selected, there are a couple of schemes where the "Busy" symbol is a circle and appears next to the cursor when the system is Busy or waiting for something. It may be that you have one of these schemes selected.
