Im having a huge problem with my computer. I think the cause was I'd install a recent Microsoft Windows update. After restarting my computer to allow the process to complete, it gave me options for my AIM and iTunes programs on firewall by Microsoft Windows. So I selected "unblock" for both of them. This feature was so confusing so I decided to restart my computer. When it reached to my desktop, the taskbar and the desktop icons keep disappearing for 5 seconds, then appearing again. The only thing that stays is the desktop background. With all the blinking, I can barely access to my programs from start. I've tried going to Safe Mode, but it wouldn't let me. The first pop-up that gave me a "yes" or "no" answer for the safe mode proccess kept restarting itself. I've also tried going to system restore, but it wouldn't work. I went through "CTRL + ALT + DELETE," ran msconfig, and clicked on the system restore. But, the process STILL doesn't work. If anybody who knows how to fix this annoying issure, PLEASE I would be soo happy!! Just tell me specificly what to do :whistling:
