Exclamation New Here and have a question.

y0, I'm Amanda but I go by Mandy. I have a large interest in Engines (diesel) And I know nothing about computers. My question is teh arrow on my computer keeps blinking it does this every so often, not when I'm loading something, and it usually happens when I'm on yahoo about to log in. I'm afraid of someone is trying to "hack" my info. Why else could my arrow be blinking?

never noticed that happening on my computer.
But it shouldn't have anything to do with hacking. So if there are no other problems then I wouldn't worry about it.

Mine does in mozilla if there are flash ads etc. You don't have mouse trails or anything like that on do you?
