Flashing hourglass mouse pointer

I have just today installed Office Professional 2007. If I open any of
my existing Word files the mouse cursor flashes continuously and
quickly with the hour-glass icon. This doesn't happen with any new
file I create. Is it trying to tell me something? I have searched this
site and found a similar question back on Feb. 15, 2002 - but the
writer received no replies. Either he discovered the cause or gave up.
Is it something that will eventually disappear if the file is saved
enough times with the new Word?

Excuse my ignorance if this is a really basic question.

Cheers!

I have the same problem but it has progressed to any document that i use
while working on Word 2007.

Any pointers would be great.

Thanks,

I'm having this same problem! And it is making it hard to click on
anything - the pointer keeps moving! Can anyone help out here?

Hi, following my querie back in July/August - with no replies I did a
more extensive search of the net and noticed a comment by someone
(goodness knows where it was, it was so far back) who linked it to a
HP product and suggested a rather convoluted remedy. Rather than try
it, I contacted HP Australia by phone. I got on to someone who was
able to help me. They took me through a process (15 minutes) which
solved the problem. I haven't had it since.... But, I'm sorry I can't
help with the specifics... I'll check through my notes and see if I
can find anything that may be of help.

Cheers!
