    Hey B, I think that was the last security log, no??
    Also, I don't want to sound paranoid, but I need to ask, Techspot is a legitimate site, correct? My computer has been freezing up since I ran the OTL restore point cleaning... I've had to do hard reboots, hold the power switch to turn off

    Look at my reply #11 for Security Check instructions.

    I'm not sure what you mean...

    Turn the computer off, wait 1 minute. Turn it back on and see how the shut down goes.

    I'm thinking adobe flash might be causing freeze-ups. I may have to un-install and reinstall?... I'll do another security check

    Sorry about the delays. I've been busy with starting a new business, and training with another career. I appreciate all your help, it just gets frustrating when I think I'm done,and there's more to do. The latest is, I'm getting adobe plugin crash reports (Flash) on Mozilla since I tried doing both upgrades you recommended. Page freezes (except for mouse) on and off every 10 seconds sometimes. I wonder if I should uninstall and reinstall friefox?? also as a side note, adobe acrobat tries to open PDF's in my IE, instead of reader. Having a hell of a time fixing that. Sounds like acrobat is linked deep within IE somewhere...

    Run Flash uninstaller: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html
    Install fresh Flash copy.

    I assume it means that when you double click on .pdf file it tries to open in IE?

    As for you second issue...

    1. Find any .pdf file.
    2. Right-click the file and choose Open
    3. Click Select a program from a list of installed programs
    4. Click OK
    5. If the application is not listed in the Open With dialog, click Browse and locate Adobe Reader executable.
    6. Make sure that the following checkbox is enabled:
    Always use the selected program to open this kind of file
    7. Click OK.

    What I meant to say is that pdf's or pdf links within IE try to use acrobat, which is a p.o.s. demo I didn't pay for beyond the trial version. It should be using reader which I have installed. However, in firefox, it uses reader..

    In this forum, we make sure, your computer is free of malware and your computer is clean :)
    Because the access to malware forum is very limited, your best option is to create new topic about your current issue, at Windows section.
    You'll get more attention.

    Ok, please allow me to finish what we were doing , so that I can complete the process. I don't believe anything severely malicious showed up on the scans and cleaning, or at least I hope...
