Unhappy Flickering Hour glass

Does anybody have the same problem as me and if so, what can I do about it? Once Windows has loaded up or the computer comes out of Standby and I go to use the mouse, the hour glass flickers by the side of the cursor. I cannot control the opening of files and folders, I lose all icons momentarily. Programs open up on a single click, then closes themselves down again, the screen basically goes berzerk!! Oddly the way I cure this, and it works every time, is to hit any key and, hey presto, I have a stable environment. This is a pain of course and I wish I did not have to do it, one day it may not work. Ideas anyone?
