AOL AND NON-AOL BROSWING HANGUPS

I have a Gateway Select 1000, with an AMD processor, 1000Ghz, 512MB RAM, 40 GB HD, running XP Pro with Service Pack 2. All Windows updates are up to date. I am having hangup/lockup problems with AOL 9.0 optimized and when connecting to the web via Internet Explorer 6.0 without going thru my AOL connection. I have run AdAware, SpyBot, AOL's Spyware program and McAfee Anti-Virus religiously for a long time. Sometimes when I connect to AOL, the sign on screen comes on and the program freezes, not letting me type anything. I have to exit the program using the task manager. Then I go to IE and it fails to connect with anything. Sometimes a reboot fixes the problem, sometimes it doesn't. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the McAffee AV that AOL provides. I use the firewall built in to XP. As a result of this problem, I downloaded the xblock freeware and it now "cleans" my system at every boot up. It found a few things, like HUNTER, that my other security programs did not. I did a system restore last week which seemed to solve the problem for a few days, but now it is back. Another symptom is that if my son has been playing a CD ROM game for a long time, then exits, the screen will go dark and the machine has to be rebooted. Sometimes the lockup will occur during successful browing sessions in AOL and non-AOL IE browsing. The probelms seemed to start after I installed a USB 2.0 card and hub but that appears to be coincidental. I also have an external HD for backup as a result of my fears of losing everything. I ran a memory diagnostic that came out fine. The motherboard was replaced about a year ago. I have had problems with XP in the past and have had repair it. I have been thinking about reinstalling AOL but have held off. I saw directions on a help site for removing the AOL adapter, but I can't find it. I use the selective startup mode for my machine, executing as few services as possible. Finally, I have obtained the following Hijack log. Any ideas out there? Thank you.
