Please can anyone help me with this annoying problem..
Whenever i turn on my laptop it starts up and the icons show and then start flashing on and off or just vanish.
I started up in safe mode and tried to download anti virus software but i cannot download any antivirus stuff. This didnt work so i downloaded from another PC and transferred onto my laptop. After that whenever i tried to run the software nothing happens..
Any help on this would be appreciated...

Not sure, could be a virus. Or it could be that explorer.exe is stopped. explorer.exe is the process that shows your desktop icon and task bar. Is the task bar also disappearing?
Try this, run task manager (ctrl+Alt+del) then click menu then [new task] then type explorer.exe then [Ok]. This will try to run explorer.exe again.[File] menu then [new task] then type explorer.exe then [Ok]. This will try to run explorer.exe again.
