Sometimes when looking at this site my screen goes haywire the start menu keeps opening and closing desktop dropdown box keeps flashing all over the screen and different programme install box appears in the taskbar then internet explorer shuts down . CPU usage shows 100% quickly then normal and everthing back to normal .I have run norton anti virus which has found nothing its very odd . My o/s is win xp
