    Computer gone crazy!!!! Heeeeeelp!!!

    HI, My computer's gone crazy, it keeps popping windows!!!! it says "launching file manager" or something like that, my ubuntu is in spanish. I first thought it had something to do with Ubuntu tweak, I uninstalled it but nothing happens, then deleted Screenlets, and NOTHING =S I don't know what to do or how to know what's causing it!, HELP!!

    Here's a screenshot:

    My first suggestion would be a reboot, it seems that some script has gone wrong and is continuously spawning nautilus windows. A restart should probablly be enough if you haven't tried already.

    Otherwise, could you post the output of
    Code:
    top
    (ran in a terminal window) please, it may give an indication of what is happening.
