Desktop Icons & Taskbar keep flashing on/off
Right before I was rebooting my computer yesterday, I got a dll error (i couldn't read the error it flashed to quickly).

Since rebooting the taskbar & desktop icon keep flashing on/off. I saw another poster on here that was having a similar problem: http://tinyurl.com/2ahlmh, but I couldn't reply to that post.

I ran vundofix, sdfix, combofix, and gmer. But I am still having the problem. What do you suggest?

I found if run explorer.exe twice it will stop the the flashing of the the taskbar & desktop icons. But when I restart the computer the problem will startup again.

Do you have any suggestions?

Hi Devil Himself,
These are the reoccuring errors that came up:

Faulting application firefox.exe, version 1.8.20071.2514, faulting module pmkji.dll, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x00057b67.

The update cannot be started because the content sources cannot be accessed. Fix the errors and try the update again. Windows Search Service

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{198E7740-27E8-46B1-AB8F-7C0C2CAD538C}. The backup browser is stopping.

Question explorer not loading on startup
I started having the same problem yesterday 4/4/2008.I ran a SuperAntiSpy scan and a VundoFix scan.Super showed something called Vundo Variant,while VundoFix showed something called byXnnKDV.dll and C:\windows\System32\WDeMonmp.ini.I used both programs to "fix" the problem,but once I rebooted it occured again,I ran the same programs two more times and got the same results.I kept having to open task manager and open explorer to get my icons to start blinking on and off.If I opened my browser,I had no problem connecting or surfing to sites for suggestions to cure my problem.I'm a total novice when it comes to fixing these issues.As of now,10:36pm EST,I'm at a total loss as what to do.Help please. P.S.My computer has been stable for the last 45 minutes or so,but now I see the icons and task bar are gone again.

Sorry to here that you are having the same problem. I found my problem was due to spyware. Superantispyware fixed this problem for me. I attached a picture that show the settings that I used with Superantispyware to correct the problem.

I hope this helps! This problem happened to me awhile ago, so I don't remember too many details.

tr0y: I can't thank you enough!! Ispent a day and 1/2 working on this issue and was ready to restore my machine. Your fix worked like a charm. I would add one thing, go through the 'repairs' list on superantispyware and decide whichs you may need to repair. I needed to select one of them that had to do with explorer. Again -- Thanks!
