In my menu bar there is an endlessly spinning cog wheel. I assume it replaces an icon, but I don't know which one it would be. From time to time, it is accompanied by the word "Loading." I've tried everything I can think of to get rid of it, but no luck. Thanks in advance for any help.

Please don't cross post. I've moved your question to the most appropriate forum and deleted the duplicate copies. Also, you asked almost this exact question about a year ago here:

The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Sorry about the cross posting. I couldn't find an appropriate forum for my question. Sorry again. Alan

And more apologies. At 84 the mind isn't what it once was. I'd completely forgotten that I posted about a similar problem last year; and, yes, it was MenuWeather Lite. Problem solved. Thanks to all for the help.

Don't worry about it. Glad that it worked out.

Crossposting makes it harder to make sure that a single problem gets a consistent answer - and that we get good feedback on suggested fixes. Not remembering you had a similar or identical question a long time ago isn't really a problem. I often check my nametag at work, just to make sure I'm answering to the right name...
