I began having an issue with my laptops ATI Radeon graphics driver not working properly. It is fixed now, but the other issues I was having at the same time was not being able to view indexed files through the "search programs and files" and "windows explorer search" box. The screen goes blank or does not produce any results. Also, one of my downloaded software disk programs will not open--error. This particular program, Logos Bible software, index its files quite often. Even when I am not using the program. I also cannot change my desktop background to any picture except solid colors. I think my laptop has a corrupted file somewhere, or it is infected with malware. Can you help?

Since you state you have run ComboFix and are requesting help for that in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic443207.html

Please wait until you are cleared of any malware or changes that the malware tools might have made to compound this issue have been cleared.

Once it is determined that malware or use of antimalware tools is not part of the problem here, please PM any staff member to have this topic reopened.
