Default Hour-glass Gets The Shakes

I have a recent problem related to the internet only. I have Windows XP and just switched to a cable-internet connection. After the computer sits about 3 hours, as soon as I get unto the internet the hour-glass starts shaking violently, and refuses to do anything else until I re-start. Anybody have an answer?
Thanks for any help.

Call technical support on your internet connection. Your paying them good money they should be giving you a good service.

Yeah; technical support should know - shaking hourglass however is beyond me; never heard of it happening. I don't even think it is possible without the screen shaking as there is no animation for it to do that.
