Default Should i just reboot my computer to fix vid card prob??

My vid card has been acting very funny ever since i put a new update down on it (ATI MSI r4850). The theme of my vista keeps on changing whenever i try to watch vid, the start up takes longer then usual... i dont know, something seems just very off.

Maybe its a virus... or maybe its the new update i got, i have no idea.

I tried deleting files that i thought might have viruses and such. Didnt work.

Should i just reboot my computer?

PS: to mods- Sorry wasnt sure where to post this, since i dont know if its a virus or video card problem. please move it if its in the wrong place

First uninstall the drivers you installed and reinstall them with a fresh download from ATI's own site. Don't download drivers from MSI's site.
