    Greetings to all,
    I have this annoying screen problem that has finally taken its toll on me. While doing anything online (Google, Email, Surfing etc) my computer screen will freeze and then go a white translucent color.
    It happens across the board on anything I may be working on.
    If I am in Google, and I'm also checking email, or working on an Excel Sheet, all 3 things will freeze and go white.

    I have attached my HijackThis Log, as well as the DDS and Attach txt.
    Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed to help me solve this annoying problem.

    The freeze usually lasts a minute sometimes 2...and as you can imagine, when you're working at a frantic pace, having to stop and start is really annoying.
    I have run all my antivirus software (AdAware, AVG, CCleaner) but nothing fixes it.

    Hope someone can offer some help.

    MissPamela

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, i fixed my own problem here - after not getting any replies, I made it a mission to google and search other forums.

    SOLUTION : Uninstall Mozilla and Reinstall IE ;)

    No more transparent screen or freeze ups.
    Note to those who stubble upon this thread - if you choose to Reinstall Internet Explorer, be sure to keep your settings (favorites etc) so you don't have to loose all your fav sites, saved logins etc.

    Good luck.
