Slight Computer Problem

on August 17th 2012, 9:43 am
Wondering if anyone can help me on this one. For weeks now when my computer goes into sleep mode or I play something in Fullscreen mode like World of Warcraft when I close out the program or wake my computer from sleep mode my Desktop along with all the icons seems to have shift to the left about six inches to where I have black running down the right side of my screen and all my Icons and the start menu is cut off.

The only way I have found that I could fix it is if I restart my computer than the desktop imagine and everything will be back to normal. I have automatic updates for my video drivers so they are all up to date I tried moving the desktop but it wont move its almost like its out of alignment.

So I was wondering if there is anything else I might do to be able to fix it.

That sound like a virus my computer got a few months back.
If it's the same problem you're up creek with playing games, but it shouldn't cause issues with web browsing.

I ran both my antivirus and Malware Bytes and nothing was detected.

Tasuki, prior to scanning your harddrive, did you make sure your MalWare & Antivirus definitions are up-to-date?

Edit: I ask, because I believe your computer should've already alerted you. By the way, what Antivrus and Malware program(s) are you using to protect your computer?

I use AVG Free Edition and Malware Bytes and yes both are up to date.

Ah... Free Edition? How long is your trial period for? It may not be a virus or malware. Specific files may actually be out of que, and can't synchronize correctly. Other than that, I have no idea. I'm not really a computer technician, so I can only try to help you out my friend. Question

Edit: Did you try to defrag your harddrive yet?

If its a Virus I recommend Avast Anitvirus Software.

I dont know I have heard that Avast and AVG are just as good as one another.

Certain viral bugs go undetected, so it could be a virus. Then again, could also be a simple file out of place as stated above. The only recommendation I have is going back to an earlier date. Maybe something updated without you knowing which messed it up. Good luck.
