    hi, first of all is your system infection free, i suspect you have a browser infection so could you download Hijackthis from techspot downloads, and read instructions on how to post a hjt log. and get back to us

    regards pcaceit

    Just viewed your hjt, and what comes to mind is combination of norton and spybot s&d and web browsing.

    Cant be 100% cause i'm not running that setup. but i recall from when i did evaluation, that there was an issue with S&D and norton running together and it was because i had some active monitoring feature of s&d running that caused it. so i disabled the active monitoring feature in S&D and it solved the problem.

    would also suggest you check application event log in event viewer and see what events have occurred relation to either of your browsers?

    Erg no such luck.. i disabled the norton and spybot client both and tried starting firefox in safemode... with only internet but no go... perhaps it could just be them conflicting on the os all together? i am not sure... should i try unistalling them perhaps and then something? Let me know... cuz unistalling them isnt a problem... i have the disks for the so let me know if i shoudl try that...
