Assuming what you say is really happening, I would run an anti virus and spyware scan, preferably in safe mode.

Ah, that makes sense. The spinning blue cirlce in Vista is part of Aero. If yours has been replaced by the old XP hourglass, Vista might be disabling some Aero features because your hardware can't keep up. What is your computer's vista performance rating? It can be found by right-clicking My Computer and selecting Properties.

Vista still displays the spinning blue circle even without Aero. I'm currently using Windows Classic display, and I still see the spinning blue circle.
