I am running XP Pro with Firefox as the default browser, yet IE continually opens all by itself. I have run Spybot and taken care of the items it found, but that didn't stop IE from continually opening up, sometimes more than one instance at a time. I amd attaching the log from HijackThis. Any ideas?

Thanks Gringo. I think the problem is gone for now. Running Spybot in safe mode found several instances of malware and successfully removed them, and things appear normal again. A dead mouse had prevented me from even booting up normally, and the combination of both made the problem appear more serious than it was. If I'm wrong, I'll repost. Thanks again and I'm sorry to have wasted your time.
