Cursor in Photoshop Elements 8 driving me nuts. Help?!

Why is my cursor spinning (i.e. "thinking") so frequently in Photoshop Elements 8 (PSE 8)?

Recently, when I try to work in PSE 8, as soon as I open a photo file and begin to process it, my cursor cycles through "thinking" and working about every three seconds (whether I'm selecting something or not). It works for about three seconds, then "thinks" (i.e. spins in a circle) for about three seconds. It does not work while spinning (it moves, but won't allow me to click anything).
I'm using Windows Vista and have been using PSE 8 with no trouble since it was released. My cursor works fine with all other programs on my PC.
I've restarted the computer, but that doesn't help. I've also reset the cursor tool. No joy. Haven't uninstalled PSE 8 yet as I was hoping for a simpler fix.
