When I do a r/c on a desktop icon, the egg timer appears and I cannot get rid, even using Ctrl/Alt/Delete.

In fact I had to use power button to close down, any ideas please.

I should have said its a wireless mouse.

There appear to be various solutions (e.g. click here), one of them was running chkdsk click here, with both 'Automatically fix file system errors' & 'Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors' check boxes ticked.

Not sure if the wireless mouse is contributing to the problem or not. G

Its most probable a corrupted shell extension in the right click extensions

Is there any old programs listed no longer installed

Does this help click here
