icons that move on their own?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am able to get a stable 2.640 ghz right now, which gave me a 5866 3dmarks in 3dmark05 with my graphics card stock.

The problem is when i went to install coolbits 2 on my computer and rebooted, i got my 6800 up to 475 mhz core in coolbits, but 3dmark05 says that my core is 450mhz (stock).

So i ran the test anyway and it got through all the graphics tests with improved results which led me to beilieve that my card was actually at 475 despite what 3dmark said. But as soon as my pc hits the first cpu test, it loads, then it dims out and my screen remains black for a long time. So my system crashed, no big deal, i force-rebooted, and when windows loads back up, all my icons are cluttered in the upper left hand corner of my screen in NO APPARENT PATTERN OR ORDER.

So i rearranged the icons and rebooted one more time to see what was going on, and it did it again, except this time the icons were all in different places than the first time.

I ran norton and it picked up no infections.

I have two questions:

Does anyone know the cause?

and

How do i uninstall coolbits?

thanks

I believe this can happen with a drastic resolution change? I'm probably wrong, but I know I've seen it before. Nothing to worry about.

The thing though is i havent changed my resolution at all, and this only started happening after i installed coolbits.

Sorry I skimmed over it and missed the part where you said you re-arranged them, then rebooted. I'm really not sure now.
