    While turning on the machine, keep pressing f8 on the keyboard until a selection screen appears. In the choices, it will say safe mode. Choose that.

    You could install Malwarebytes, run it and update the definitions before doing that. Then once in safe mode, use it to scan there too - in addition to clearing the temp folder manually.

    I thought this is an interesting thing to disclose as well ! When i log into my ADMINISTRATOR account (now and previously), i never had the problems that i have using my other account ! The Administrator account runs perfectly but doesn't have the same desktop setup as my other account with this issue ! Hmmmmmm

    Each account has it's own TEMP folder and it's own problems.

    Here we go.....the results are as follows.........Ran the Anti-Malware and came up with 4 Trojans ! Deleted everything from Temp folder except a file that will NOT delete even in SAFE mode ! file:///C:/Users/SAMEH/AppData/Local/Temp/FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt-------------However, i still have the problem that was first mentioned ! Best described as a stuttering and flickering of the windows that i open up ! Another side note, my Perfmon.Exe is NEVER running and is always red when i open the task manager ! Could it have an effect on this issue ?

    Remove this:
    O4 - Startup: LimeWire On Startup.lnk = C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe

    Gotto get rid of this:
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Download all links with IDM - C:\Users\SAMEH\AppData\Local\Temp\Rar$EX00.922\IEGetAll.htm
    (Should have got rid of it when deleting TEMP folder)

    Remove:
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Download FLV video content with IDM - C:\Users\SAMEH\AppData\Local\Temp\Rar$EX00.922\IEGetVL.htm
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Download with IDM - C:\Users\SAMEH\AppData\Local\Temp\Rar$EX00.922\IEExt.htm

    Thinking about this:
    O23 - Service: @C:\Program Files\TuneUp Utilities 2010\TuneUpDefragService.exe,-1 (TuneUp.Defrag) - TuneUp Software - C:\Program Files\TuneUp Utilities 2010\TuneUpDefragService.exe

    Maybe the backup defragmentation is heavy (though it shouldn't be).
    Go into services and disable the Tuneup service (or change it to manual)

    Make sure your HOSTS file is ok.

    I'm curious to know if Mozilla has the same flickering.
