I can't begin to tell you how far back I need to go to a restore point before this started happening. I'm sure I have made changes and don't want to lose them by randomly selecting a restore point that I'm not sure is the correct one. As for the Malwarebytes I tried the free copy it did all the scanning and then corrected I believe 15 errors out of hundreds if not thousands. It asked me if I wanted to continue to fix the rest I would have to pay. I actually signed up but they somehow had problems with my credit card which is perfectly valid. When signing up it kept trying to ask me to purchase other products which I did not need or want. I went outt o look at the reviews for this software and although CNET rated it high other users said it was a piece of crap and to stay away from it. I have since started a trial subscription of AOL Checkup and that didn't seem to correct the spinning blue circle.
I also followed this advice and that didn't eliminate the spinning blue circle.:
Hello, I've seen your issue before. Let's try the below settings change and let me know if it helps to lessen the blue spin icon (this is the processing icon similar to the old hour-glass icon on windows XP)
Start your PC then click on the bottom left start button, then on the right side of the menu you should see "computer" right click on that and select properties
A new window will appear select "advanced system settings" on the left side.
A second window will appear click on the first "settings" button on the top.
Click the third button down "adjust for best performance. then click apply and then ok at the bottom.
let me know if it's any better after that change.
