    It shouldn't be constantly flashing. When you click on a file or program, the little Busy circle shows up for a split second as the computer Thinks as it starts to load the file or application. Solved Constant flashing loading icon (blue circle) next to my mouse. - Windows 10 Forums

    Any new system install will tend to generate a lot of activity at the start of use, Windows uses a number of databases for use with Searches Etc. These need to be populated and this is performed as a background task, which would explain what you are seeing.

    I always try to leave any new system on for a few days after install to allow this set-up to complete if this is possible. but if you only use the system for tasks during this time and especially if you have a complex system with a lot of data it may take a while to complete.
