    Hi,

    After my computer has been running for a while (>6hours) the grouping of
    programs on the task bar fails (ie can't open the popup menu and select
    which one I want to open) , taskbars in IE go missing, and various other
    programs stop responding (Dreamweaver and Visual Basic 6.0 are two
    examples). I also get a message from Spypot S&D resident that some value
    related to "IT bar Layout" is trying to be changed.

    Spybot and Adaware turn up nothing,

    Running XP Professional

    Anyone any ideas as to what the problem is?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    It's most likely heat related. Buy some can compressed air, open the case
    and blow all the dust bunnies out. Do it outside.

    Believe me.
