Also, my hourglass was like this before I ran malwarebytes. Probably not necessary information but I figure every bit helps.
Hey everyone, I've been having a lot of problems with my computer for the last few weeks. I keep fixing each issue as it comes up but then a new one seems to pop-up, and I can't seem to find a way to fix my current dilemma.
I recently fought with a virus or some other issue that would not allow me to open any programs other than firefox. Firefox ran fine, but if I tried to open anything else I would just get the hourglass pointer for about 2 seconds and then it would go away. I couldn't even open control panel and if I tried to use add/remove, the list would come up blank. After trying several fixes and having no luck with any, I did a system restore and went back about a month to April 14th. I then did a full virus scan (I have the full version of malwarebytes and did quick, full, and flash scans). However, now my cursor is constantly locked at the arrow with the little hourglass next to it. Most things seem to still work fine, but I was nervous about what programs might be running in the background. So I tried to open Task Manager and it won't open. I get the black cmd box for a brief second and then it goes away. No errors, no warnings, it just closes. Compared to my previous issues this seems minor but I worry about what might be running in the background. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
