for the last 2 weeks my desktop has been acting weird. if i have a firefox window open (or any other window) and then close it, its image is still showing on my desktop.
pressing f5 (refresh) does not get rid of the ghost image.

i've run the latest norton, ad-aware, super-anti-spyware and spybot but no luck in fixing things.

is it possible my video card ram or regular ram might be faulty?
each time i restart winXP things are fine for a few days at most.

my system...
winXP pro SP 2
2.5 gigs ram
nvidia geforce 6800 gt
dual monitors vis DVI
win7 Ultimate 64bit
2 x 24" LG Monitors
Intel Core i7 920 with Xigmatek HDT-S1283
12gigs of OCZ Gold XTC Triple Channel 6x2gig DDR3 1333MHz PC10600
XFX Nvidia GTX 260 core 216
Corsair TX750W
Cooler Master 690
HDD Total = F I V E TB!!

I assume the image that remains is non-functional? With the image left on the screen, can the computer run other applications? Did you delete all cookies history and temp. files?
