    Hi hope someone can help. My system has been running extremely slow. When I turn the computer on/restart, when my desk top comes up, there is nothing but the picture of my desktop. No icons, start menu button, quick launch icons, language bar....nothing. I can cntrl+alt+del and get the task manager no problem. I can see processes running. It will take easy 4-5 minutes before anything pops up.
    As a separate issue today, something hijacked my mouse. I could only move it right. Every couple of seconds it would move it self. I had to shut down. It has been fine since then. I have tried, my antivirus software (McAfee) and spyware doctor to no avail. Having read a few forums I wondered if anyone can help? I have downloaded HJT but I'll wait till someone asks for the log. Please help.
