I recently was online (wireless) and lost my connection to my wireless network. After about a half hour of trying to re-connect, I decided to restart my computer. After restarting my computer, I still could not connect to the internet. After closing my browser window, I noticed that the Microsoft "flying flag" icon was overlaying many of my desktop icons. I could see the icons, but the flag was on top of all of them.
I ran my virus scan and nothing came up. I ran ad-aware and nothing was on the computer. I restarted again. This time all my icons had Microsoft flags on them. The flags slowly made their way onto every icon in every folder I viewed. Everything seemed to be working fine, except I still couldn't connect to the internet.
I was wondering if anyone might know what this is, and what may have caused it.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
