My G5 imac (tiger) has withered away - or so it seems...!! All of a sudden this afternoon every icon diappeared off the desktop, so I can no longer get into my home folder or the Hard Drive and the finder is completely flipping out (well flashing actually). I can open applications via the dock, which is still visible, but can't do anything as the window flashes on and off all the time.
I cannot get into the finder at all. I have done all the reboots, extentions off, rebuild desktop and PRAM all to no avail. I am now reinstalling All worked backed up just losing lotsa personal stuff -
But has anybody come accross this before? What has happened and why??
It's quite scary. :-(
Thought I would mail from other machine while rebooting!
Any advise/suggestions greatfully recieved :-)

It is possible that you have a permissions problem. Go into the Disk Utility, and run a permissions check.
Let us know what you find. Your answers are not with AVG or Adaware; those are windows programs, and your Mac will not run them.
