This is an old problem.I have just formated & the pc is running better than ever,but this problem is still there.first one icon stays on and i can't get rid,if i click on another any number or all stick on.All i can do is restart.
This could be a keyboard problem. If you hold down the shift key and select one icon a group of them will highlight. If you hold down the Ctrl key and select an icon it will highlight and stay that way even when you select another and that too becomes highlighted. Therefore it is possible that you either have sticky keys, a bad input connection or an intermittent cable break. Try a new keyboard. Hope this makes sense and good luck. Please post back if successful.
My pc has really been a pain tonight.I was just going to shut down,with difficulty,I could'nt close the windows,when I did get to the desktop an icon was lit then four,it was 100% definitely the shift key "partially" contacting.Many thanks to you folks and pcadviser.
