Hello,

the problem I'm having is the following:
when I go to display properties (by right clicking on the desktop or through the control panel), and click "settings" --> "advanced" --> "geforce mx4 420", instead of opening the video card menu, I get the following messages:
- run a DLL as an application has encountered a problem and needs to close...
and after I click either "send report" or "don't send":
- dr watson postmortem debugger has encountered ...
Finally, when I kill the process,
- rundll32.exe has encountered...
After killing rundll32.exe everything goes back to normal.

One thing I should mention is that this only happens in my account, in my wife's account this problem doesn't exist.

Steps I followed: scanned the computer (in safe mode) with adaware, spybot s&d, avg, norton antivirus. Although it found some troyands and malware, the problem is still there. I also deleted the temporary files (several times).
Finallly I did an online scan with "trend housecall" and it came clean.

Below is my hijackthis log.
I'd really appreciate any help you could give me.
Thanks in advance.
