I posted a HijackThis log in the appropriate forum, just in case this is in fact a malware/virus/trojan issue. However, I'm also posting some information in this forum just in case it could be something else. I'm currently running the x64 edtion of Windows Vista Ultimate. When I load the system, it runs fine for awhile. However unnanounced I'll start getting random errors. The main one being the unusable task bar. This problem is hard to describe as I've never seen it before, but it's as if the taskbar buttons become jumbled and overlap and everything shifts to the left. I would include a screenshot but the computer at this point becomes unsuable. Also I use the Windows Dreamscene as my background (it's very pretty), however often times my screen will flash, and I get some error saying the video card crash but successfully recovered. Othertimes I'll get an error stating that dreamscene has been temporarily turned off because windows explorer stopped working. I don't know how to duplicate these errors, and this has happened before. I formatted my hardrive and reinstalled. This involved me having to call microsoft to be reissued a new key since my old one was "already in use." I don't want to have to format my hardrive as I'm a college student and I have many important files for class. I also need to get this problem resovled asap as I cannnot be a college student and have a faulty computer. I like the look and feel fo windows vista, and my other peers aren't having nearly as much problems as I'm having.
