greeting

for last 48hrs my cursor has been changing from pointer to hourglass
every 3 seconds. (i timed it and am watching it right now).

i have all parasite utiilties updated and have run them all. i also have
an anti 'v' of which is current, updated & has been run.
msconfig, ctr-alt-del, start-up, all show no changes to my computer.
this started off as just being annoying and i believed it would rectify
itself after running the above including the reboots, but its still their.
any windows98 persons here know what is causing this?

Once you add Symantec (Norton) products into the mix, it gets more difficult to
determine where the disk activity is coming from. However, I assume you have had
this same startup list for more than the 48 hours that you say this problem has been
around; and many people use these same background apps without the behaviour you
are seeing. Without knowing what has changed on your system 48 hours ago when this
started happening, the best I can suggest to try to troubleshoot is to:
1. Start in Safe Mode and see if the behaviour still occurs there.
2. Do a clean boot and then re-enable items in small groups to determine when the
issue disappears and reappears.

You might also go to Start> Find> Files or Folders, select the date or span of a
couple of days when the problem first arose, and check for files modified on that or
those dates, as a clue to what might have happened at that time.

Okay, I will do the 'trial and error' thing, its just such a pain to do
things
that way knowing the root of the problem could be elsewhere.
I have a dual boot system and it hasnt affected the other o/s, so at least
this breaks it down to being a windows98 problem only.
gracious for input.

Thanks for the feedback. Too bad you can't report what worked for you, but I am
certainly glad your problem is gone! :-)

Yes, I agree.
Could turn out to be more frustrating than the actual problem;
nothing worse than fixing something and not knowing what you did
that fixed it.
