Does your friend use Stopzilla Antispyware? http://www.stopzilla.com/products/stopzilla/home.do

If so, I'd suggest uninstalling it to see if it corrects the problem. If he wishes to continue to use Stopzilla, I'd then suggest downloading a fresh copy from their website to install.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
