Hi... Uhm... My mom's laptop has been having this problem for a while now... Whenever "my computer" or "my documents" and similar folders open, they stay on for like a few seconds and then the screen refreshes and the window is gone.

at startup there's also a couple errors saying that itunes and nokia PC suites are malfunctioning, or something like that,

I looked around the web and found something about looking at the administrative tools on control panel and found a couple entries in the even viewer that says "error" under "application" and "system"

Just in case, I ran HijackThis, and here's the log:
