gnome-screenshot makes everything explode


I have a bit of a weird problem. I installed Ubuntu on my hp pavilion laptop (which might make a difference) and whenever I start it and start using it, it's perfectly fine. But after a few minutes, gnome-screenshot starts popping up again and again, and never stops until the CPU is completely overloaded, the laptop overheats, and it shuts off. I can start it and leave it completely alone and it still does this. I can't find anything about this problem anywhere and I have no clue what might be causing it. Please help.

Thanks much for help!

I don`t know what is wrong, but you can try to uninstall gnome-screenshot, immediately after your login (before anything happens wrong), an` see what happens then.
