    Ok need some help here. I can not open desktop icons or any programs on my computer after about 5 min of being logged on. I checked to see if there were any funky processes running but i cant open up the task manager. Im only able to open it right when i log on. Any ideas what the hell is going on? All my spyware and virus scanners are not coming up with anything abnormal running.

    have you ran any kind of "cleaner" app lately?

    those can delete important pieces parts sometimes.

    you might wanna try to do a file scan.

    you'll need your windows disc - go to your run menu and type this in and hit ok
    sfc /scannow
