No add-ons for IE6 that I know of. I could always try upgrading to IE7 to see if it fixes it or just keep using Firefox.

The bigger issue is the Internet. It seems like it stays on for the same amount of time (about 3 hours) every time, before going out. Then I either have to unplug and re-plug in the ethernet cord from my network card to get the Internet to "connect" back again. Or re-start. Either one works. I can't ping anything when it's out. I didn't have this issue until I ran a few of the steps listed above a couple days ago, so I'm guessing maybe it's a windows driver problem or something?

As for Utorrent, I use it every now and then but don't keep it running all the time.

I'm not aware of any infections that will have a internet timeout period. It could be a coincidence that your ISP is having issues or the modem/router is overheating or going bad.

You can see if the system file checker will fix the IE6 issue. Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow and hit OK. Let it scan. If it finds any files missing/corrupted, it may ask for the Windows CD. Otherwise, it will auto-close after it's done.

I fixed the Internet issue. FYI, here was the solution. Start>Settings>Network Connections. Right-click on my connection(s), choose Properties. Click the Authentication tab. Uncheck the "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" box. Click OK. The Internet now runs fine without dropping you after about 3 hours like it used to (I've run it for 24 hours straight and counting without it dropping the Internet Connection). I think that box somehow became checked when I was running some of the above programs.

I also upgraded to IE7 but it still crashes when I go to certain sites. If I go to Gmail, it will crash within 30-45 seconds after logging in. This will also occasionally happen on the pgatour.com site as well. But other sites run fine and do not crash. There must be something specific that runs on those sites that is causing the crash. I have tried starting it without the add-ons and it still crashes on those sites mentioned. I also uninstalled and re-installed Adobe Flash Player. I've also tried the sfc /scannow as mentioned on a site before and went through that whole process but it has not fixed it. I've listed below the last 3 crashes. I'll just use Firefox for now and keep doing some research in my spare time on the IE crashing to see if I can find out what the issue is. Let me know if you think of anything.

Anyway, thanks for your help with everything. I really appreciate it. Any suggestions on a free real-time malware/spyware protection program I can install and keep running to prevent further infections?

If you want, you may ask in the Windows board to see if anyone else has ideas on what's causing IE to crash like that.

Good job. Your log is clean.

To help prevent future spyware infections, read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Go to Start->Run, copy/paste in combofix /u and hit OK to remove it. You should be set to go.
