    Friends compurter was used for three years and never up dated ME or IE.
    Ran updates for windows for him and plan on installing Mozilla Firefox.
    Do I still need to install updates for IE and what do I need to clear out of HJT log.

    Reboot and delete the folder:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWEBSEARCH

    judysearch seems to be offline, but I found it in the mvpshostsfile so it must have been naughty. ;)

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thank you for getting to this so fast.This must be a full time job.took me all most an hour and half to find all this junk.And still wasn't sure of the F1 ?Is there any thing in the 04's that can be started manualy.That doesn't need to start up when you boot? :doubt:

    From the top of my head I am sure of these:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QAGENT] C:\Program Files\Intuit\QAgent\QAGENT.EXE
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RealTray] C:\Program Files\Real\RealPlayer\RealPlay.exe SYSTEMBOOTHIDEPLAYER

    Both can be started from Start > Programs if and when you need them.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    This one can also be fixed
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MoneyAgent] "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Money\System\Money Express.exe" [not requiered

    and yes unfortunately you do still need to do ALL IE and windows critical updates, even if you don't use or iintend to use IE. IE is so tightly bound to the operating system that any IE security exploits affect the whole system
