Something is causing problems with my computer. I get the spinning blue circle and it is very tiresome. It seems to occur most often when I wake the computer after having it closed for awhile and I am launcing Outlook, Firefox, iTunes or whatever. I think, but do not know for a fact, that Outlook may be the culprit in causing the crash.

So, putting all this together, I get the spinning blue circle when I wake the computer and try to start Outlook and other software. Or it may be something totally different. Any thoughts on things I could try to fix this issue?

Many thanks.

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Nothing is different that I know of. I had the same problem last night when I got home. Opened the computer launched Outlook, Firefox, and iTunes. Outlook had problems and I got the spinning wheel. Maybe I'm just not giving it enough time to start-up? Could it be that simple an answer?

I don't know. Does everything seem to be working normally?
