No New Hardware has been added. When I click on Control Panel, My computer, or Internet Explorer, it shows the hour glass for a few seconds, then the desktop icons disappear, then re-appear, yet my computer, control panel or internet explorer does not open. I can do all of this in safe mode with no problems. It is just when I access these in normal windows that I can't open it. I even tried in diagnostic mode and still cannot access these. Any other suggestions, I have ran every possible virus scan and it does not find anything. I have ran a spyware program, but still no luck. Yet, to me it acts like it is a virus.
I hope that this helps
