    That process you liked to disabled Click to Run, deleted some files, and re-enabled Click to Run. Any reason to re-enable it if I'm using an old (pre-Office15) Office? Does Windows use this service for anything other than the current Office?

    I had read using Task manager and disable "One Drive" may resolve. But...I'm not sure what I may be losing by disabling "One Drive"
    if one drive can easily be re opened,
    I do have pictures on One drive, actually I have pictures all over, it seems when I download pics they go to one drive, pictures etc
    Please understand, I'm 82 I don't seem to learn quickly or remember what I learned very well. funny, it didn't used to be this way.
    I suppose the answer is go back to using a pen and paper, if PCs are so difficult.

    If you have the same problem I do, disabling OneDrive in the task manager or anywhere else may not be the solution, it did not work for me.

    But something else worked. I noticed that the only running process in the Task manager I had never stopped was Chrome. Even if I was not using it, it kept showing up so I tried. I disabled it and the spinning cursor stopped.

    I searched for a reason and found it here: ​Stop Chrome from Running In the Background After You Close It

    Once I unticked the "Let Google Chrome run in the background" option, no more blue circle! It worked for me, I hope it works for you, good luck!

    Mate, I have no idea.

    I am running Windows 10 Pro and Office 365 and it got rid of the blue circle I had.

    I am experiencing this same issue, and have narrowed it down to the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The issue only started when the Windows 10 Anniversary Update was applied, but I see the working circle next to the arrow the entire time I have any PDF documents open. I checked to see if there are any updates for Reader DC, but Adobe tells me I have the latest version. Does anyone know if there are specific settings within Reader that should be tweaked to eliminate this issue? I know I could switch to a different PDF reader, but I use the notation functions, both for myself and to tweak those made by coworkers, so I'd like to be able to stay with this software.

    This has started happening to me when I got the windows anniversary update a few days ago. it isn't constant only when I try to load something on steam like the market or store, but they wont even load it just stays at a black screen with the blue circle flickering.

    Hi I just wanted to say thanks for this - this was driving me insane and thanks to this post I was able to narrow it down to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. As soon as I quit out of it, the problem went away. Adobe will hopefully have an update soon as I am running the most recent version from Creative Cloud.

    I am having the same problem on my Asus. As far as I know I do not have fingerprint access
    Go to Task Manager, right click on Asus SMart Gesture Loader and click on End Task. This will stop the flashing circle
