i have lost control of my computer

by nolaboy / May 2, 2004 5:35 AM PDT

about every 15-20min i am kicked out of whatever it is i am doing, connected to the inernet or not. I have ran the following:ad-ware 6.0, spybotsearch, housecall, mcafee antivirus and i am still having the same problems. When kicked out a link appears on the start bar, but leads to nothing. I am using IE and connecting via a cable modem. I tried disconnecting the modem from the computer and play games but still it happens. what could be the problem and how can i fix it

"When kicked out a link appears on the start bar, but leads to nothing." What form does this link take? What do you mean by start bar, Windows start on the lower left corner of the desktop?

The link is on the taskbar. it is a minimized window, but when i click on it nothing happens. i have noticed that it only kicks me out of the active window or what ever is active at that time.
