Hi Everyone,

I've been on the HijackThis thread for a couple of days-going back and forth and posting different logs-they suggested that I post to the XP thread-they said everything is clean from what I posted.

When I am using the computer for a long period time, the IE toolbar icons change around. I have it set up for 2 rows of icons but then it will change to 4. I do have the option to Lock Toolbars checked. Also-after this happens, if I go to open one of my OE emails, it says- not enough memory to open this -and I have to reboot. Any help would be so much appreciated!

First, did you uninstall Combofix as Grinnler advised?
Please do that before anything else

Go to My Computer and right-click on the C: drive,. Select Properties. What is the size of the hard drive (or partition) and how much free space is left?

I would suggest installing SP3 and IE7. Then test to see if it's fixed.
Then install the rest of the Windows Updates that are available (as I recall, there's a security fix for IE in them).
If it's not fixed, post back here.
If it is fixed and you don't want IE7 - then uninstall it from the Add/Remove Programs applet in Control Panel
Test again to make sure the problem didn't come back.

I decided to remove all unnecessary toolbars from IE-Google, Snagit, Dictionary.com-to see if that would help and everything is working fine.
