Recently I removed the antispyware soft problem with help from what was written on this site but I think I first noticed the problem prior to that.
Okay, here's the issue.
After booting up the machine, everything SEEMS to boot normally. Sometimes it even looks normal (I use the windows classic view) but then I go to click on the taskbar and get nothing except the tone that means "you can't do that." Othertimes on reboot (like this time) the desktop icons are the ones that are non-responsive in the same way but the taskbar is working. Also the font has changed to a much more basic one than is usual for the theme. I'm including a screen shot so you can see the font. (As you can see I am a fan of Total War and Alternate History.) The blue background to each icon is always there, it becomes a different color if I highlight it.
Most of the time if the taskbar is non-responsive I can hit the windows key to bring up the starmenu, but not always. The desktop icons themselves being non-responsive is new it's only happened twice. I assume the icons loaded but not the actual desktop links since I can use windows explorer to active the programs from icons. That said the taskbar issue has been plaguing me more and more for the last 5-6 days.
Any advice people here might have for me? I just built this thing less than two months ago!
Thanks in advance.
ED: Picture two illustrates what the font is supposed to look like.
