not sure really sorry.it doesnt sound like an error but check start/control panel/performance and maintenance/administrative tools/even viewer for any errors listed anyway.

if you try to execute a dos program in xp you will just get a black cmd pop up brefily when you click it.if this happens without you clicking anything then it may be something else.

try running an up to date AV

try a scan for adware/spyware click here click here

also check whats running at windows start up.click start/run type"msconfig" and click the start up tab.untick all except your av and firewall and restart.
