I have an irritating issue on my computer that consists of a pop-up that appears then disappears. This causes problems when I am running older games in a full screen mode, usually causing them to freeze and shutdown. I can see the pop-up appear on my Taskbar, it appears for only a few seconds then disappears. I've scanned my computer religiously using AVG, Microsoft Anti Spyware, Adaware and Spybot, I've run Hijack This a few times and have tried to catch it in my Task Manager window, but I have been unable to track down which program on my computer is causing this. I'm worried it might be some form of spyware or virus that is either updating itself or downloading information from my computer. It's not a major worry at the moment but it is extremely irritating.
OS= XP Home sp2
Browser= Firefox/ IE 5.0
Anti Virus= AVG
Anti Spyware= Ewido, Microsoft, Adaware, Spybot, and I use Panda once in a while
