I have a computer running Vista Ultimate and the last week or two it has been acting a little weird. First of all I could not end a process in the Task Manager because supposidly I did not have the administrator rights (which I am an administrator) and it got to the point to where I would install or uninstall a piece of software and Windows came up and said that I did not have the administrator rights to change the registry. Also, last night everytime I would try to load an application Windows would say that the shortcut was looking for a file or application that was not there anymore. I tried it with Firefox and IE 7 and it did the same thing (same error message) everytime and so I restarted the computer and it fixed it, but it should not do that. I would just like you to view the Log file and see if you can see anything to help me out. I run Zone Alarm Internet Security 7 and it works like a charm for me and I do system scans every week and did one today and it found nothing. I installed Spybot and it found some adware and spyware via cookies from the pages I looked at on Firefox.

Here is the log file:
