For several weeks I have had a "problem" that seems to involve some lines of code that after every reboot start a process that eventually leads to a switch of a requested website to "badurlgrandstreet interactive, etc. that hangs up the machine and forces another reboot. Some offshoots of the problem are files called RECYCLED and KWV2 and various files called lu.dat, kwv2.dat, and a string with DCO. These are symptioms, rather than causes since they may be removed without fixing the problem. The length of time before reboot is necessary now varies from 30 minutes to 3-4 hours, depending upon what one is doing.

Half a dozen programs including Trend Micro, AVG, Spy Hunter, NoAdware, AdWare, SpySpotter, and Fxleplgn have been run. Most of them find a problem with an "IEPlugin" and supposedly remove it.

The HiJackThis log was run after Adware had looked at 96050 objects and found 36 "critical objects". These were mostly cookies. Theydid includefour VX@ items. These included a Regkey, and File, and Reg Value and a Folder. The folder was in Windows\temp\DrTemp\

NoAdware had been run before AdAware and had removed the file Windows\lu.dat.
