    Circle near the Pointer


    Hello Forum,
    Recently I have noticed, each time I click once (not double-click to open it) on any file, starts for a moment or two, a revolving circle (like a clock), same when I point (select) several files to move them elswere, is it normal or something wrong starts.
    Virus checked twice a day, defrag weekly.
    Appreciate your answers
    Thanks

    The first one would be more reasonable means it's working.
    Does this happens on any file type
    Some file types have metadata, previews and Windows loads them when you click on the icon depending on the view setting of explorer

    Hello derek10
    Thanks for the answer. Sometimes the circle appears like the first one on your sample, and sometimes like the second one.
    From the answer , I believe, there is nothing wrong with the system ?
    Thanks

    The circle means the computer is thinking.
    Do a Check Disk of your HDD. Go to Start/Search and type CMD. right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and restart the computer. Check Disk will start at next bootup and it will go through 5 stages and take a long while. This will check for Bad Sectors on your HDD which may be slowing down your system.
