Virus Scan / Config Problem

  Geord 17:48 10 Oct 2004

In the last couple of days I have encountered a couple of problems which may be related - perhaps someone could advise.

The icons on the original window screen upon start up have started to relocate in a haphazard format upon start up rather than where originally saved. This doesn't happen all the time, but has become more frequent.

In addition today I tried to run a virus scan (Trend Micro PC-illin 2003) and the scan freezes at exactly the same point every time ( I have tried 3 times today and have rebooted to see if the problem goes away). The folder it freezes on is as follows:


I haven't encountered this problem before - all previous scans have been fine, but there's obviously a reason why the scan freezes on this particular folder.

Not sure whether these 2 problems are related or totally separate, but any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

what size is this folder and might you not be giving the scan enough time to complete?

Try scan disk. Possibly the folder has managed to turn itself into never ending loop. If so time for a big back up.
