My laptop just began doing 2 strange things. First, when I click on the 'my computer' icon on desktop or in Windows Explorer, I get the 'flashlight' searching for my drives indefinitely. I have to go to 'run' and enter the drive to see them. It's a workaround, but a pain. Second, when I have an open dialog box ( ie, saving a document), the system always freezes when I click the drop down arrow. This is truly a PIA and I am stumped. Virus scan done, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Guard and Adaware all installed and updated per the good advice of folks on GT. Any help greatly appreciated. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
