Hello again, folks! Well, it's been a nice run for awhile, but my PC is acting very strange all of a sudden again. The only thing I can think of is a recent installation of Skype, which my daughter uses. Dell XPS, Win XP Pro, AVG Free First, when I click on IE shortcut, it launches two separate IE windows simultaneously. When I click on the dropdown arrow, it will not launch until I click on it about three times. At the same time, sometimes when I select a shortcut from the dropdown screen, it jumps to two icons ahead. When I try to place a cursor on text, it doesn't respond. Of course, when I click on the space several times trying to place a cursor, it just highlights the word. And of course, the huge drop in performance overall. I don't know if the settings got messed up somehow, but I suspect some sort of virus maybe. I ran Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, HJT, AVG, and Advance System Care. None fixed the problem. Would someone have an idea what's causing this? I appreciate any help or advice!
