Any advice? Whatever window is in front loses priority to iexplore.exe, and I get random freezes. I have ran AVG, Symantec Antivirus, Spybot, A-squared, Adaware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Symantec sees the random file name and gets rid of it but a new random one comes back pretty quickly

thanks a lot

Your log shows "No action taken" for the items found. Did you select everything at the end of the scan and click "Remove Selected"?

Oh thanks a lot, I followed the IE7 instructions and it worked. I just had to reset everything.

Running the scans in safe mode, and then resetting internet explorer settings fixed everything. Thanks for all the help

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java entries that you have.
