When my computer has an error, which it does often, I try to open the task
manager. It always closes almost as soon as i open it. All I see is its
window flash, and then disappear. The task manager icon stays in my toolbar
at the bottom of the screen, though. If i move my mouse over any of the
icons it disapears. What is going on?

I don't think thats going to be the cpu or a component?
Me thinks that'll be software corruption, possibly virus.

What happens if you try and go to or

Do you get frequent web pages refusing to load or pop-ops about installing anti-virus software? If so definitely a virus, most likely a browser hijacker....

Do a google search (from a clean PC) regarding your symptoms and search for hijackthis, some useful advice that may be relevant.
