    I believe I have a Trojan. I first notice what looked like very small bar-codes around my cursor. The bar-codes were above and below my cursor. They started appearing in other things like the icons and the 3 symbols for minimize, expand and shut-down. Then my icons started disappearing. At one time when I typed in an URL address and the letters were just lines (like a tall bar-code). One can see the ‘bars’ in the Window’s logo as the pc starts up. This is the second day of this problem. I ran my Norton Antivirus and some spyware programs. No help there. Rebooting helps some but the problem is getting worst. Can you advise me?
