What OS are you running (Win98, WinME, or other) and when did this problem first occur? I had that happen one time upon a fresh boot and it just went away on its own. I did think it was odd since the only thing I had done was turn the PC on and all I thought it could be was some type of error in my desktop. When I rebooted though, it never came back.
When did the problem first occur and when did you get those programs and remove the spyware stuff you had?
