I found a couple of things lately thanks to Zone Alarm, opening Task Manager when my browser goes crazy, and poking around the Registry Editor. I cleaned out as much as I felt safe doing, I still have the occasional browser freeze or crash though. One I'm not sure of is something called updmgr. I googled it and it looked like a virus, but it's in Earthlink, not CommonFolders. I know a couple of times when my browser really started to chug I gave Windows the old three fingered salute (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and updmgr was there, those were the only times I had seen it. Anyone know if it's an essential program or a cleverly hidden something else?

I spotted MyWebSearch again too, in the registry. I had it once before but I thought I had gotten rid of it. Neither Ad-aware or Spybot S&D caught it, there was a listing in hijackthis that I checked and had it fix, but it's still in add/remove programs (which of course doesn't work).

I still get the occasional random browser crash, especially at IGN (ign.com), which may just be due to their site. No idea what else might be lurking on my system. If someone could take a look at my log and see if there's anything else that needs to go, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

:techsupport: OK, one last try. Could someone please take a look at this log? I'm still having problems with IE randomly crashing and there's still some suspicious looking stuff popping up from time to time. Is there anything in the log that needs to be taken care of that could help take care of my problems? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.
