Over the last week, about 3 times, when i turn on the computer it will load and then all the desktop icons will flash randomnly like crazy, and when i go into IE the page will reload when i try to type something, and when i open a new page the title bar and the loading text at the bottom of the page will flash like crazy and not load the page. Ive tried restarting the computer a couple times but it hasnt helped today, the last two times ive just turned the computer off and come back another day and it will be fine?

What should i do?

Hi bithass..welcome to G2G... :)
you need to start your own topic...although your problems may sound similiar they can have completely different solutions...if nobody starts helping in your thread after 1 day...PM me with a link to your thread...
please provide all the info you can...it will speed up the process of fixing your system...

This has happened to me for the last few months now.
Nothing is coming up on the various virus scans I've been doing and it's extremely frustrating.

Please help!
