  1. Hey Everyone!,

    Soooo randomly today when i cam to my computer after my cousins have left i found that there was a space in between the right side of the Mozilla window and the egde of the screen. When i say space i mean that you can see the desktop. Second thing i notice that is my task and desktop icons are all gone. I try right clicking on the desktop but nothing happens. After a few minutes of scratching my head i turn off my computer and log back on. Now i see that my task bar is on the right side of my screen which i never do, and all my icons were back. So i unlock my task bar from the right and i drag it to the bottom again and locked it. not even 3 seconds later my desktop does this refresh like action where all the icons flashed and the task bar is locked on the right side again standing vertical. Now getting aggravated i have no idea what to do and how to change it back to normal. i am not sure if this is a virus though. As i type this the task bar is still missing.

    PLEASE HELP!
