Hi, I have had few problems with my PC over the last week or so. First off, my system was hijacked and kept taking me to a blue error page when I opened Internet explorer. With the help of other posts I managed to get that sorted. I now have another problem. My desktop seems to dissapear. If I have been using IE and I go to close the page it closes and is no longer on the bottom bar, but the image appears on desktop and I can't remove it without re-starting my computer (can't even access my icons). Even if I open the start menu, the image stays glued to the screen. It does not have a set pattern but it is really starting to get on my nerves. I also have occasional problems clicking on links, the whole system freezes. My task bar automatically hides, when it pops up then hides again there are lines where the bar had been. I have removed my downloaded background and used the basic windows one, but this does not make a difference.
I am not technical and know nothing about the workings of computers, so please remember I will not be familiar with various terms and help pretty much needs to be spelled out in idiot terms! All I can tell you about my PC is that I bought it from Tiny in December 2001. It runs XP and has intel pentium 4. I run the free version of AVG anti-virus and have done for over a year. I also have spy bot and ad-ware, (both of which I have run and have found nothing). i also downloaded that hijack this thing. All my windows update are up-to-date.
Please help as I am at my wits end. I did consider re-staring the whole PC, but do not have all the disks that came with the PC.
Thanks in advance
