    Since a couple of months, I started having problems with folders containing JPG files: Sometimes (not always, I have still not been able to figure out a pattern to when this happens...) when I am trying to open a folder which contains JPG files, the program (for example Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, Adobe Photoshop, etc) that I am using simply crashes, leaving me with an error message saying something like "explorer.exe has encountered an error and will shut down". Note that this message is the same no matter which program I am browsing folder with. In other words, it seems as if for example Adobe Photoshop is using some kind of file browsing functionality from Windows Explorer which is malfunctioning.

    Some observations:
    - Crashing *seems* to occur more frquently when I try to open folders which contain a larger numer of JPG files (e.g., 5 or more).
    - Crashing *seems* to occur more frequently (although not exclusively, I think) when I am using a file browser function which displays small thumbnails of the files in a folder.

    I am running F-secure Internet Security package, and have searched the computer for viruses, without finding any. I have tried the AdAware spyware finder (which did find 76 suspicious entries (severity level Low and Medium, but removing them didn't help at all..)

    I am enclosing below both the event log and the log from HijackThis, in case that would shed any light on this dilemma:

    This is how my event log looks when I experience these crashes:

    Sorry for this log being in Swedish... The word "Fel" means "Error" and as you can see for example at 22:44:51 at 2004-04-01 the crash is an application error with event type 1000. If I right click this entry to get more info, it says:

    "Felaktigt program explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1221, felaktig modul ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.1217, felaktig adress 0x000080db.", which means:
    "Erroneous program explorer.exe, version 6.0.2800.1221, erroeous module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.1217, erroneous adress 0x000080db."

    Does this give any clues?.. Another thing I do note in the event log is the presence of something called "BackWeb Client - 4476822".. Now, in my ears, that doesn't sound too good. Sounds like some spyware, or?

    My Hijackthis log looks like this:
