    Hi, whenever I start my computer, it just shows my desktop wallpaper. Nothing else, no startup bar, no toolbars, no sys. tray or anything. I press CTRL+Alt+DELETE and it says Explorer is the only thing running. After I wait about 1 minute, AOL instant messanger window pops up with the username being "C:/Windows/Pic" and then 2 seconds later it says "BLOW ME: Your computer is seriously broken, it may only be fixed once you have sex with your CD Drive." I click Close to this dialog, and then my floppy drive just makes some noise for about 5 seconds. And then it just starts over again. Any help?

    P.S. Normally, AIM is NOT set to start up with windows on my PC.

    It would be safe to say that you have picked up a "nasty" somewhere.

    Do you have a full-time and up-to-date antivirus program installed and running in the background?

    Are you still able to connect to the Internet and open websites?
