reoccuring hour glass or spinning circle (windows 7)

At some point in time something got installed on my pc that caused the spinning circle (the Windows 7 equivalent of the hourglass) to appear over and over and over. The frequency was about every 10 seconds. I watched the processes and could see the culprit was SkypeNames2.exe. This is remedied by uninstalling the Skype toolbar.
