Hi, I am not too computer savvy, so you'll have to excuse my ignorance. I started having problems with my computer a few years ago, but never really knew how to fix it. Here are some of the problems:

My task manager does not pop up, if I go into internet options and delete my cookies, I come up with an error message that Ybrowser has encountered a problem and has to close all windows. It does not delete my cookies. I have to go into the folder and manually delete them. I have run virus scans and have scan spyware, but I was unaware that it wouldn't fix everything. Also, both my CD R and RW drives are not working. All of these problems started around the same time. I have had other problems, but can't think of them right now.

Well today I was having a problem logging into my Paypal account, so I went into delete the cookies and the same error message came up, Ybrowser has to close all windows. So I pressed CTRL/ALT/DELETE. This is the screen that comes up when I press CTRL/ALT/DELETE:
Task manager
not sure if that's going to work. I saved it in a word file, but it won't let me copy and paste. (I also added as an attachment at the bottom of this email)
Anyway, another error message popped up, saying that Dr. Watson Postmortem Debugger encountered a problem and had to close. My computer froze and I had to reboot. I was wondering, ok what's this Dr. Watson thing, so I went searching online for information about it. I found your site and went through the area that says start here. I have scanned my computer using all of your recommended programs (adaware, trojanfinder, spybot, etc.) and only ran into one problem.

In trying to get the Windows update:
I have automatic updates set to on; Microsoft found the only thing that needed to be updated was service Pack 3. Now when I tried to install service pack 3, I came up with the same error message that Ybrowser had encountered a problem and needed to close all windows. I tried a couple of times, always with the same result. I moved onto the Hijack this. Here is my log file. Let me know if you can help:
