Windows waiting wheel in a loop while testcomplete software is running.
My cursor displays a spinning wheel while running software. If i close the software this will stop so I have traced to testcomplete. I've been kind of just living with it but today i decided you know what i am going to ask around if someone knows what the heck is going on. I am running windows 10 business build 17134.112. Memory Available to Windows: 67,032,880 KB. Testcomplete is up to date Version: 12.50.4142.7 x64. Perhaps it's a configuration issue? It almost seems like it's busy with something in the background. Attached is gif of my cursor.
I experienced the same issue. What fixed it for me was disabling the "support for Windows Store applications" option (Tools>Options>Engines>General).
What @twice suggests is a good idea. If you don't need to test a Windows store application or microsoft Edge browser, it's best to have that option turned off. Turning ON the option actually disables some functionality in TestComplete so, unless you have the explicit need, best to disable the option.

Why automate? I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy. Sleep is a requirement. So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group. I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
