That's a clean log.

I would recommend that you get SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.

Go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 and you will find links to both of them plus some tips on tightening your security settings in IE.

Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot. The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster , SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping you free of many pests.
Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.

I've never used it but a lot of people here like it. From what I've heard and read it is good.
