Ok, first off please bear with me here. I know alot about computers but I mostly taught myself so some terms I use are probably not the proper wordings. But anyway heres my problems. For the past week I have had a problem with programs showing on my task bar that Im not even using. I right click to close and I dont even have the option to close it, nothing happens. I have to totally shut my computer down. Even pressing ctr alt delete doesnt help because nothing shows up to close down. Right now my start menu folder is showing up on the task bar and I havent opened it up. It just came out of nowhere. A friend told me I needed to run a spyware program. Well, I run ad aware & spybot search and destroy every day. I just ran those 2 again, my Norton anti virus and also the online scan from House Call before posting on here. Nothing is showing up as a virus or spyware so I dont know what in the world is wrong. I have my windows updated too. Can someone help me figure out whats going on. It doesnt seem to be bothering anything on my computer but its bothering me!
