    Icon Movement

    My friend is having a problem with the icons on her desktop. She has Windows 98 and says that as she moves her mouse across the desktop, her icons move. She is not clicking the mouse. Any idea what might be causing this and how to fix it? Thanks.

    Do you think it's the W32.Magistr.24876@mm virus?

    I think the symptoms sound familiar.
    Does your friend have any virus protection running?

    Supposedly, but I'm not sure she knows much about it and/or has updated it.
