On my Dell Lattitude C510/610 laptop running win XPpro, different folders and programmes started opening up for no apparent reason. They would then rapidly flash and when I tried to close them they immediately restarted.
I tried running a virus scan (using Virgin Media) PCGuard. The scan runs for about twenty seconds the shuts down with the info that the scan had been cancelled by user.
I've tried starting in safe mode but the problem occurs in this as well.
Appreciate any help offered as I am stumped.
