Ok, so this is a pretty long story. I turned my computer on one day and all of a sudden i can't double click on files and programs to open them, when I do the icon just turns a lighter shade and nothing happens. I tried opening the programs from the start menu but it randomly says do you want to make a shortcut of this file on your desktop. the only way i could open anything was to right click on it and then open it. So i went on and then the problem disappeared and then reappeared. The next day I turned on my computer and my desktop changed itself to light blue.Same problem as before except this time when I right clicked on an Icon it didnt give me the option to open it. So I restarted again and then my desktop image came back but still it won't let me double click on files or open them from the start menu. I've ran spyware doctor, didnt find anything. should I run norton? Any help? please?
