Um...this strange thing happened to my comp a while back, and I'm just wondering if anyone knows what was wrong...Norton popped up, saying something about an update when the upper left of the window started flickering. I got afraid and turned the monitor off, and when I came back the whole screen was purple, the color of my...uh...WindowBlinds skin. o.o Then, the comp wouldn't react to anything, and I had to restart it. It's always healthy...I never have viruses or anything. So why would it act so freaky? o.o

If this just happened once, and everything was fine thereafter, I would not worry about it. Odd things will rarely happen, but they will happen.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
