My next door neighbor is having problem with her icons . When you move the mouse to select an icon they gey all jettery and ramdomly move around. You have to select quickly or they change to a deffetent icon before you click on them. Is this a virus or do someone play a joke on her? I almost forgot to mension she is running Win 98se.

There was a program around for a while called IcoFright. It moved your icons around and stuff. Sounds like somebody is playing a trick on her, or she has a virus. When was the last time her system was scanned?
