My taskbar (autohidden) appears every 10 mins

Acer Aspire 5738z-4111 15.6
February 27, 2011 at 01:35:16
Specs: Windows 7
Precisely every 10 minutes, to the second, my taskbar, which is on auto-hide, appears briefly and disappears again. A small window also appears but is so brief that I can't read the message.
I have looked in the list of Scheduled Tasks and there is nothing there set for a 10 minute interval.
This problem has appeared only since I eliminated the System Tool virus. Any ideas please?
I'm using Win 7, Google Chrome and IE 8.0. Acer 5738Z Pentium T4200 2.0GHz

Thank you for drawing my attention to that button which I've never used before.
In fact, it seems to have no effect. I wonder if it needs to be configured somehow.
Anyway, I've solved the problem now, thanks.

I personally use auto-hide all the time as I like as much screen space as possible.
But regardless of whether it is used or not, there was clearly something causing the situation and this needed to be remedied.

In the end, I slowed the computer down severely by using cpukiller3 and was able to read the message which related to Avira AntiVir, the message stating that it was not working even though it was.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Avira and now all is well.

Thank you.

Nice work.

"Thank you for drawing my attention to that button"
Had no idea if it would work in your situation, I use it a lot during boot. Press the Space bar to move off Pause.
