Have a pc running XP Pro where the systray items expand and contract continuosly. Also any open windows also "jump". While this occurs cannot select any items in the taskbar and the only way to stop it is to reboot the computer. The pc is free of malware or viruses. Any idea what is causes this to happen?

Do You have all of the most up to date drivers for your video card/s? When you say "Jump", could you be more specific? If you have not checked on your drivers yet i would do that first, if thats not the problem though ill get back to you after doing a little research.

Yes, drivers and service packs are up to date. Behavior is not like a normal display issue where the desktop is wavy or flickers due to a bad monitor for example. The arrow that expands and hides the systray icons will expand and hide continuously. While that occurs, any open windows displayed in the taskbar literally behave as though being shaken back and forth, moving from side to side and blocking out other windows listed in the taskbar, then moving back again. While this continues, the images do not fade out. The start menu and other desktop icons cannot be selected. The mouse may also freeze intermittently. Any assistance on the cause will be appreciated. Thanks
