Icons popped back by themselves. ???

I have found that when windows, task bar, browsers, etc. lock up, I can ctrl, alt, del, select switch user, select myself again and when the desktop appears all windows function normally. After a few minutes its locks and I have to do the same thing to get it to work.

AdwCleaner does not appear to be working. I get no screen like in your post. However looking at processes it is eating up 50% of the processor. It has been running for 20 minutes.

I have uploaded the JRT file.
