I have a complex problem. Here are the (strange?) symptoms. I am running windows Xp. A few days ago my internet connection came up as limited or no connectivity. All of a sudden B1.exe, B2.exe, B3.exe, etc. Started filling the desktop. I used system restore and everything was ok for a couple of days. Now, I have several problems. First, explorer.exe is using between 60000 to 100000k on the task manager. Two, sometimes the desktop just disappears. No error message or anything. Three, when using internet explorer, the cursor goes away randomly like it's running in the background, but there are only popups sometimes. Four, now I only get a black screen when running in safe mode. I run the taskmgr and try to open the desktop, but it will only come up for a few seconds. Finally, I have noticed today that all of the desktop icons seem to have a blue outline. I am running Defender Pro antivirus and spyware protector.
