When I click out of my Explorer and return to the desk top I get this message. Should I be concerned, and how can I find out what's wrong and how to fix it?

"This program has preformed an illegal operation and will shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor."

:rolleyes: Thank you...

Those errors can be caused by many different things really and sometimes its caused by adware. If you would care to follow below we can remove that possibility..

Please get Spybot S&D to clear out any spyware.
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=mirrors

Install the program and open it.

Before doing any scanning click Online and Search for Updates .
Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click Check for Problems and when the scan is finished have Spybot fix all it finds marked in red.

Then after reboot:
Download 'Hijack This!'. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
