Boopme has been working with me on the "Am I Infected" forum and the conclusion is that malware is not the problem. I'm running XP Pro and IE8 with a 120gB HD and 2gB of RAM (recognized by the system. As an example, when first go to FoxNews.com (and several other news sites) I get a small pop-up "Message From Webpage: Out of memory at line 1". When I navigate to another page/site, the same pop-up appears but the line# has changed to line 6. In all cases I can still view the page but can't navigate somewhere else while the pop-up is active. Thee ESC button is getting a workout like never before. I've gone through the drills suggested on most Q&A sites such as the settings for VM (I'm letting the system control that), disable this, check that, etc. One thing I've noticed is that when I check the Task Manager, IEexplorer.exe jumps to ~33% for a second when the pop-up appears then drops back to zero. At this point, should I run ComboFix? ANY SUGGESTIONS?

First thing I do when I have browsing problems is to try a different browser. Firefox or Chrome will suffice. If the problem is only IE8, then download the redistributable and reinstall it.

Hi -
First - Boopme would have asked / instructed you to run ComboFix if it was required
Take the following steps to help prevent infection on your computer:
•Enable a firewall on your computer.
•Get the latest computer updates for all your installed software with Windows Updates, and check other installed programs.
•Only use 1 up-to-date antivirus software program.
How to turn on the Windows firewall in Windows XP

Your system lists 2 Antivirus programs, please delete one, and only use one at any time, as this will cause problems -
1) Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus (Version:
2) Microsoft Security Essentials (Version: 2.1.1116.0)

Thank You -
Edit for spelling -

Appears to be nothing but script/coding errors...you cannot do anything about those, other than stop your browser from notifying you of such.
