I began to see something odd happening yesterday after my Firefox froze & stopped working. I then opened up some IE pages & they too froze up. When I clicked on the IE tab that asked if I wanted to reopen the pages, the pages opened & just started blinking on & off & acting crazy. I shut down my computer & left it off fr the night
This morning I turned it back on & it went through the normal start-up but when I got to my desktop, the background was all black & the cursor was just a spinning circle that wouldn't stop. I rebooted several times & the same thing occurred. Also, sometimes my desktop would show the icons on it & sometimes it wouldn't
I ran Malwarebytes which found nothing & am running Avira anti-virus now. So far it's showing some detections. It seems like this scan is going very slow & may take hours. Also, I'm in safe mode as I write this since I can't get online in normal mode
I'll hopefully clean up what Avira finds & I'll post what is found & see if that clears it up but am posting this now to see if anyone knows what causes this & has a solution
Thank you in advance for any help
