Hamluis, thank you for your reply. I have updated and run (in safe mode) every antispyware and antivirus imaginable since this first occurred. Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, Norton internet securtity 2009, eset nod 32, ad infinitum and everything comes back clean. I just don't think it's a malware problem but I can't for the life of me figure it out. I have already done a sfc scannow using my installation cd successfully. I have done a disk cleanup and defrag, I did dskchk to check for bad sectors and recover file space. However, whenever I attempt to remove any thumb drive from any of my usb ports using safely remove, my computer freezes and I get a popup that simply says "rundll". I can exit it with task mgr. but with no info. in event viewer I am unable to proceed. I thought perhaps a usb driver or controller needed to be updated but none seem to be needed. HELP!!!
