Alright, so this started happening a few minutes ago. This Lime-ish Green screen periodically appears and just overlays every that's on-screen. It's only there for about 3 - 5 seconds. Has anyone heard of this? Is this Malware/A Virus?

Edit: I just tried typing into an Input Field on another website and everytime I started to type, the Green Screen would instantly reappear. As soon as I stopped, it would go away. This gives me reason to suspect that I am being keylogged. I can provide a snapshop (though it may not be very helpful.)

I deeply suspect that this is a keylogger... Try using AdAware 2007 to remove it then install SpyBlaster from preventing the installation of more online threats.

If it is a keylogger or other infection (which is likely), it is unlikely that that solution suggested will work... Please read the FAQ and post in Malware Removal with the log(s) needed...

However, since your original post was last November, I doubt you are even around to see this response...
