Hello! Thanks so much for trying to help me with this. My computer may have a variety of problems, so I'll try to be as descriptive as possible. First, my computer has been running extremely slow, but I don't think it's because I have a full memory (although I don't know how to check the memory and I do defragment if that's important). When I try to close a browser window, it is extremely slow moving and it wipes from top to bottom (instead of just disappearing) and then all the icons on my computer disappear and reappear. On top of that, not all of my icons are loading on my taskbar (the toolbar beside the time at the bottom of the screen). On the fist day after I completed all of the scans that you recommended, the programs all launched. However, the next day they were gone again. Also, at one point my Norton deteced the Trojan.Ducky.B. virus, but it said it couldn't remove or repair it. I ran all of your scans after that virus warning appeared, but the scans you recommended didn't find it (or at least I didn't see anything with Ducky B in it when I looked at the quarantine lists) . I am ready to throw my computer out the window at this point, so if you could help that would b awesome. I've attached the Hijack This log for you to take a look at.

Hello Pieter,

Well, I did what you advised and there is good news and bad news. The good news is, my virtual expander is back on my taskbar and it hasn't been there for a while. The bad news is, my icons are still disappearing and reappearing and everything is still extremely slow to load. Something that I forgot to mention that may be relevant is that whenever I try to log out or restart the computer, a window pops up that says End Program CAPP. It does this everytime and there aren't any programs running that I know of. Let me know if you have any other suggestions.

Thanks

-Liz

ccap sounds like Norton to me.

Can you try reinstalling that?
The Trojan may have damaged it.

Hi,

I finally had the time to reinstall my Norton. I got another Trojan while I was downloading updates from Symantec, but I think the TojanSweeper program you guys had me install fixed it. I ran two virus scans and they came up clean. My icons are still disappearing and reappearing though. Any more suggestions? If not, I'll just live with my computer the way it is. Thanks again for the help

-Liz

Can you try and give me a description for what exactly happens with your icons.

Maybe if I can imagine it in my minds eye, then I will know where to look.

Ok, what happens to my icons....... Well, when the computer is booting up, some of the icons will appear on my desk top and then slowly, they disappear one by one from top to bottom and then reappear. For example, the first two icons on each side will dissappear for about 10 seconds then reappear. Then, the next two icons on either side will disappear and reappear in 10 seconds, and so on down the length of the screen. Then, sometimes when I close by Internet browser or some other programs, the desktop icons all disappear and reappear within 5-10 seconds. Sorry, this is the best description I can give. It's very strange. Also, my computer is taking about 5 minutes to boot up. Is this normal? On the bright side...all of my items are still on the taskbar so that problem has been fixed :whistling:

Ah OK.

That same thing happens on my Virtual Machines.
Waht happens is your desktop gets refreshed when another application opens a window.
It is a sign that your computer is not equipped for the workload or it would go so fast that you wouldn't be able to see it.

On my VMs this is normal behavior beacuse I'm running Windows XP with only 300 MB of memory there.

I am unsure how fast your CPU is an how much RAM you have, but I do know that Norton is a resource hog.
For how long is your subscription for it valid?
Maybe we can replace it with something cheaper and lighter when it runs out.
