    Go to your notifications next to the time on the task bar. look through the settings and see what is in there you do not want running. This was driving me nuts for some time but I got it. Has not been bothering me since.

    I am having the same problem on my Asus. As far as I know I do not have fingerprint access
    I have a ASUS S300C and I was having same problem of mouse pointer showing the blue circle every 1 or 2 sec and some of the keyboard keys weren't working properly.

    I used a external USB mouse and I disabled the the touchpad when using a USB mouse.
    Go to Control Panel-> Hardware and Sound -> ASUS Smart Gesture -> Mouse Detection and then check the 'Disable touchpad' box.

    This seems to have fixed both problems.

    Fixed With ASO Smart PC. Disabling Windows Defender services forces you to give up a good security service. Also, if you don't have an HP or don't have SimplePass installed, changing settings in that tool won't be available.
    I found that simply running my Smart PC module from ASO, and setting malware detection on did the trick for me. Also Windows settings warns you that if you disable certain security services, Win10 will turn them back on later.

    As the title says I have this constant loading going on somewhere in my computer. it interferes with my games or if I put anything to full screen it automatically pulls it out of full screen and minimizes it. It also interferes with my typing. If I'm trying to type in an address to go to a website the flashing loading will make it so I have to keep clicking in the address bar to finish typing out the address. auto saved usernames are also an issue. where I'll type the first three letters of my username. It will pull up then immediately disappear. I have to be really fast to click it or result to the constant clicking of the username bar to put my username in. Also an issue with right clicking anything. the right click "open, delete, new folder, etc" will come up and before I can move to click what I want it disappears. I restarted my computer and it went away once. I thought the issue was resolved and paid no attention to it. I then turned my computer off and back on after a virus scan and the problem persists again. I tried turning the computer off and on again but again the problem continues. Any help on how I can find whats constantly loading/causing the flashing loading icon next to my mouse?
    I had issue with the spinning 'thinking' windows ring thing also, mainly because it would constantly pop up after a lot of clicks. What I did was go to All Settings>Devices>Mouse and Touchpad>Additional Mouse Options>Pointer tab , then change the 'busy' and 'thinking' icons to the normal arrow icon. This may not solve your problem as now the pointer icon pops up, but for me, the pointer is less annoying than the spinning circle.

    Just to complicate matters, I, too, have this occasionally on my desktop. No touchpad, no fingerprint read, no SimplePass (whatever that is), just a dumb mouse and dumb keyboard for inout. But I do have an ASUS motherboard. Some days I get the circle a lot; other days (like today), not at all. Even when the circle is spinning I don't seem to be locked out of anything.

    resolved, thanks

    Uninstalling HP SimplePass worked to resolve this issue on an HP laptop that had been automagically upgraded to Windows 10 against the user's wishes and without their knowledge or consent. Thanks.

    I have an Asus laptop.

    I went in to task manager and stopped (what I thought were nonessential) tasks one by one until the flashing stopped.

    When it stopped flashing I had just stopped ASUS Smart Gesture process so I knew that that was the cause. Off to ASUS Support site to download the ATKPackage update for Windows 10 for a permanent fix. (As I don't have a touch screen I could also just disable Smart gesture...)

    Found this thread looking through google for solution to the exact same problem. Except that my laptop doesn't seem to share a lot with other people who have had the same problem. I use a Lenovo, so no HP or Asus apps to turn off or disable. I tried disabling touchpad, it had absolutely no effect on the problem.

    When the loading icon flashes next to the cursor, it doesn't prevent me from doing anything, so in the end it's just a visual annoyance. A visual annoyance that makes me want to go back to 8.1 since I didn't have this problem until I upgraded to Win10 earlier today...

    Did you try stopping processes in task manager one by one?
