So, for the past few weeks, have had a pretty annoying issue with my PC. It will run fine for a few hours, then all of a sudden I won't be able to open a new window. If IE is running, new tabs will either be stuck empty with "Connecting..." on top, or not open at all. I'm unable to open links in new windows, open my start menu, any new programs, or even right click (menus don't show up). Even if I use my middle mouse button to scroll, nothing happens (the cursor won't change). However, if I close a window, the problem goes away until I open another, when the problem restarts. As of now, rebooting eliminates the issue for a time, but it's still incredibly infuriating. I had heard from a friend that he's heard of viruses like this, so I ran Avast!, Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, and Ad-Aware, and the problem still persists. Any help would be fantastic! Thanks alot!
