Thanks so much for the help!
I uninstalled KAV and Comodo and installed the MSE Package with firewall.
Acer did not provide any disc with this laptop when purchased new so I created a Repair disc, a Rescue disc, and Recovery disc's immediately after realizing so.
I booted with the Repair disc and ran sfc /scannow 10 times in DOS and see 6 components that couldn't be repaired, please see attached. In looking at replacing them manually from my discs, I see I can only find E:\sources\boot.wim\Windows\System32\wbem\mofd.dll and it's version 1.13.
I only have boot.wim in my discs (no install.wim). Palm.browser must be my PDA software which I could uninstall if I need to.
Thanks again for the support.
