Many posts this morning about this problem. I had it too, and uninstalled CoolPreview, based on another post that suggested I try that, and it seems to have worked.

Apparently the bug is in Cool Previews - they put up a bug fix on their site that you get to after uninstalling the program.

Uninstall current Cool Preview then install new Cool Preview. They advised it was the craziest bug they had ever seen.

Google.com has a pacman game running today in honor of pacman's 30th anniversary. It auto plays for some, believe this caused some kind of bug on cool previews.
