I posted a couple days ago about this problem:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/198961/slow-connection-ie-crashes/

I was told there was no sign of malware and the post was moved to a different forum.

Now the browser opens by its self so I'm convinced it is malware. Please check out the picture below:

Kaspersky came back clean, so I did not save the log. I recently upgraded my HDD and did a fresh install of vista. I just got everything back on my system the way I like it when these problems started to appear. I switched from IE 7 to 8 and that seems to have fixed the switched keys. My browser hasn't been opening on it's own either but I still have problem with Trend Micro and slow connection.

At the moment, I'm really just worried about keyloggers. My bleep ex had some searches in her browsing history for keylogging and email hacking. What is the best way to detect a keylogging program? Is it possible for a virus to go undetected using the latest online scan? Should I format and reinstall?

Thanks, debo
