    Any ideas on why all of the sudden the icons on my desk top are either in half or have fuzzy lines going through them. If I click on them the return to normal, but then the one I had done previously gets fuzzy again.

    Also, on my task bar some of the items don't appear until I put the arrow on them. Even my start button is fuzzy until I click on it.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. FYI this is about a three week old Dell.

    Thank again.

    some ideas - it could be:

    1. a bad video card (or one going bad)
    2. a virus
    3. spyware

    hit ctrl+alt+delete

    go to task manager, click on "performance", and see if your CPU stays constantly maxed out at 100%.

    i've seen something similar from a virus before.

    David, thanks for the tips. I just ran a virus scan and everything was o.k...If its a spyware problem how can I resolve this.

    I am a dummy.
