Hi. I recently noticed that every time i open something from 'My Computer' i see 'windows explorer' (instead of like, Drive C) in my taskbar. The windows explorer thing shows up for just a while. The original thing i opened comes back in like less than two seconds. er...is this some kind of a virus? AVG says nothing bout it.

there's another thing. every time i remove a USB flash drive from my laptop a blank windows media player playlist pops up. then disappears. anything suspicious?

i have windows vista basic.

Perhaps a "system restore" will repair your problem. See how to use it in the link below. Pick a recent restore point date that was before you first noticed a problem.
