I better hurry with this reply before there is another power failure due to the heat. I lost my previous text before I could post it. Anyway, I get those black boxes over my AOL icons too. It happens after a few minutes online. Also, I see traces of one window mixed with another window, a black background and where the advertisements should be are now replaced with a black and purple scratchy mess. On top of all this, when I scroll down, the text bleeds into many straight vertical lines. Sorry, I'm not drunk!
I have AOL 9.0 on top of my Comcast cable and I've had no problem until now. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled AOL 9.0 and used two different spyware removers. Sometimes when I switch over to my cable the craziness follows onto the Comcast screen. When I bring up the main screen of Norton Systemworks, the same thing happens. The solution is to reboot or not use AOL anymore.
The only download I've done was a Windows Security Update for JView Profiler (KB903235). I don't remember when this update was posted, but I'm wondering, has everyone had done the same thing or am I leading myself in the wrong direction by believing this download was the cause of all this madness?
