Hello, I'm really glad I found this forum. My computer's almost completely down now. Have Windows 2000. The main problem is that the windows of the internet explorer browser keep on closing randomly. The windows either disappear forever into the background, or more commonly, I'm informed that internet explorer has to shut down and then the browser freezes and has to be shut down. Also, the entire computer has shut itself down a couple times already. Another problem is that I keep on getting the "<process has already exited> has generated errors and will be closed by windows program error message" -- it happened at least a couple dozen times while I was running spybot. I've installed and run lavasoft ad-aware and spybot search and destroy, but that didn't solve the problem. I've also checked add and remove programs and removed all suspicious-looking programs. I think the problem might've been caused by installing aol/aim, but I've removed it already. I've also installed and run Hijack This, and I'm posting the log below. I'd really appreciate any assistance. Can't work on my computer at this point till resolved, unless I want to risk losing what I'm typing. Thanks a lot in advance!
