Does explorer completely crash?

Example: Task bar and all icons disappearing for 5-10 seconds then reappearing?

OR is it just Internet Explorer browser that is crashing?

Also, please post HJT log.

Never heard of Spy Emergency 2005 so looked it up here.
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

See note on it.

Quote:
Note on Spy Emergency 2005: Spy Emergency was listed on this page because of concerns with false positives and the nature of its detections. In late March 2005, a new version of Spy Emergency was released. Testing with this new version indicates that the problems with earlier versions have been satisfactorily resolved. Thus, we can no longer consider Spy Emergency to be "rogue/suspect" anti-spyware.

So you got a new version?

OK that site uses Java so do you have Sun Java?
I just went there and did a fly over of my address.
All worked ok for me too.

But here is a site like that but it does not use java.
