When I first start my computer the task and computer is fine. For about a week now, the taskbar and all the icons on my desktop have been dissapearing then reappearing in about 2 seconds. It happened often but I could deal with it so I just left it alone. Now, its blinking and reappearing constantly. I tried to click on start, and the icons on my desktop when they appeared, but that doesn't work either. I have new laptop that I bought last summer and its had its share of viruses and adware and stuff but I've managed to get rid of most of them. I don't know what to do. The My Documents folder popups randomly and right before that taskbar was blinking, I was trying to get rid of web page that kept coming up (Access Denied - Virus Warning ...) and my desktop bg was changed. I fixed that but now this problem with the blinking is worse than ever.

Please help! If I need to post anything else let me know ^^;

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
