Chasing windows icons

I have just run into a problem.  It is probably a virus.  On my desktop view, whenever I try to put my mouse over an icon, the icon moves.  I keep having to chase it, and never catch it.  I can still get to my software from the "Start" menu, but is there anyway to correct this problem.

RE: Chasing windows icons

Sounds like your computer could possibly have been infected with  w32.magistr.24876 for several monthes, it exhibits this type of behavior. I would recommend updating your virus definitions and performing a scan of all files to see if this in fact the virus you have. Unfortunately this virus also damages some other files and may require you to restore them from backup.
