Hey guys, This is for those computer saavy board members. I am having some issues with my desktop. I am running a Gateway FX7024 with Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit) 3 GB DDR2 Dual Channel, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Quad-Core with 500 GB HD. I purchased the computer about 18 months ago. I have had issues with it from the get go. The on board sound card would go out and Geek Squad couldn't figure out why. So I installed a sound card and never had issues again. Recently, the computer has slowed. Also, I have desktop icons for my City of Heroes and TVersity programs. These icons have the little Shield symbols in the lower right hand corner. Somtimes, but not all the time, when I double click to activate the programs nothing happens except the little circle spins showing they have been clicked. If I double click again they will come up as normal. However, the little circle still spins from the first attempt and will not go away until I begin shutting the machine down. That prompts a message saying the program is trying to run. Clicking okay stops it and then the machine powers down normally. This only happens with these two programs so I think it has something to do with those little shield symbols (though I am probably wrong since deductive reasoning and computer problems rarely seem to go hand-in-hand). Then yesterday, for the first time, I closed out of IE and then the same window started opening up over and over again. Like a pop up, but not pop up, the same site I had just been to (IMDB if that matters). It just kept opening and opening so I had to shut down the computer. I have ran my AV (Trend Micro), my spyware (Spysweeper) and they have found nothing so I don't think it's a virus. Any suggestions on what this might be and what I might be able to do to fix it? Thanks!
