    Post Urgent Help Needed ASAP!

    Haha alright, well I'm posting this in GCC because I figured it'd get more responses and I need a response/help ASAP. Here's the problem (from what I've gathered): My girlfriends best friend is telling us that her taskbar keeps disappearing when she moves her mouse and everything. Seems like an annoyance, I can't come up with much and I've advised she run a/v, etc..

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Dumb question, but it's not set to auto hide is it?

    No, it's definitely a virus or something. When she goes to click it or something, it moves around the screen, etc. Running scans and tests now, thanks.

    I haven't seen a virus that would do this ( yet )

    Only other thoughts ...

    she's using a laptop with touchpad and pointer, moving cursor with pointer with palm leaning on touchpad buttons.

    Or mouse has jelly in it!

    Did you identify it?
    If so, what program if any found it?

    And what programs did it drop, if you remember.

    ( just in case someone dumps something similar in my lap )
