Have a Levono idea pad Y530 with Vista. 4 GB and 320 hard drive. When using it there is a message about the File Explorer has a problem. The screen then goes blank of all the icons and then it comes back. Usually happens when I am working with files. Sending stuff to the recycle bin or deleting files. Does not always happen but when it does I have to wait for the computer to come back. It always comes back right away but gives the msg something like problem with windows explorer trying to fix.

I have done a full system scan with Avira and I have malwarebytes which I also have down a complete scan and nothing was found. Someone said I may have a worm, but everything on the computer seems OK. Not sure why it resets itself like that.
