    When I first start up my computer, icons are displayed on my desktop and they are stable. However, after several seconds my icons go crazy on the desktop when I put the mouse in motion. We have replaced the mouse and that didn't help. Can you?

    Well my friend you have been infected with the Magistr virus. I would suggest a good virus scanning program ASAP as this one is pretty bad and from what you are telling us has been on your PC for at least 2 months. I would hazard a bet that you have others on your PC as well. Go here to read more on your infection:
