They were flashing as though you would highlight them. the start button would be in lined square - - - - - like that and when you would open it it would just flash and close. i got the start menu to say up by switching it to clasic view but it still flashed.
Virus scans did not show anything.
with nortin and spy sweeper.
some of the processes running at the time that looked out of place are:
all in .exe
so what is going on here?
thx for the help.
(i am somewhere else posting and i do not have acess to the computer right now.)
