    I have an HP Pavilion 4650y running Windows XP. I use ContentProtect/NetNanny and Kaspersky AntiVirus. I have had no problems until recently. Now, every time I open a browser (or a web-enabled program) I get the following pop-up:

    "cwsvc.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    Here is my HJT report:
