I am new here nice to meet you all.
We support a network of 13 PCs early last week one pc on network was crashing due to multiply programs opening randomly causing pc to lock up. I figured a mouse error opening anything it clicked on as crashed.

Changed mouse problem seemed to go. 2 days later same PC was having to run scan disk after every reboot and eventually was replaced with a new PC, due to HD being stuffed (PC was old in first place)

Now a week later i just had another call another PC on network is doing same thing. random pop ups of programs and windows folders.

Anyone else had a similar problem or know a fix...im thinking its windows update related but like i said it started last week 09/07/07
