    you look like you have a lot of useless and potentially dangerous programs loaded. TURN OFF instant messanger programs immediately and NEVER use them. Moreover, remove them. Also get rid of Internet explorer toolbars- also dangerous.

    Second, get a copy of mike lin's startup control panel and turn off auto-loading programs at startup except for essential programs.

    It looks like your system is overrun with norton crap. The only thing that norton makes that is useful is their anti-virus. get rid of the extra bloatware.

    run several kinds of anti-trojan horse programs and your anti-virus.

    the following ATHP are recommended:
    spybot
    ad-aware
    ewido
    Micro$oft anti-spyware

    report back.
