well, i would agree with pc-details, although, lol, i may have worded it differently. he is correct. this is why people have a ton of infections in their puters. so, i would run adaware, spybot, prevx1 , or ewidos, go to and download cleanup>>>>http://www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/download.html
there. this dumps, user/IE/windows temps and cache. also, personally, i would remove all my bad active x controls and BHO's. if you are not sure which to dump..spybot has a utility under "advanced", and tools. there you can see what spybot thinks is good, anf not so good. although you cant see the damaged files unless you go check them in under internet explorer>tools>internet options>general>settings>view objects.
hope we helped you somehow. lol
