Weird taskbar problem HELP
Hey guys, i noticed that on my taskbar the last half isnt aero and i can see directly through like there wasnt even a taskbar there. Again its only half of it. Also ever since a couple of days ago there has also been a small box that is light blue with a gray border that pops up on my desktop and if i double click it it just goes away and my cpu usage is always above 70 % even if nothing is running. I checked will a full scan of avg and looked in the task manager for a weird program but nothing unusual. Any thoughts?
everything below is free and well known to work. If none of these find anything a clean wipe will be needed.

this should be everything you need to fix about any problem
it may be simpler but I would never recommend that you take the chance of leaving a virus on your computer. thats like your car making a knocking noise but then it goes away so you just forget about it. then your engine blows. anyway I would not leave your personal information open to a potential virus, rootkit, trojan. the last 2 links I provided will help you see what is going on on your computer but I would run those scans. I use AVG but they recently received an only average detection from www.av-comparatives.org/ . if your running a modern computer running these scans should go pretty quickly.
