there is 2 user accounts and the administrator was the one that was all screwed up, could this cause problems? yes there was mcafee at the very beginning but i uninstalled that yesterday even b4 i started this thread maybe its still in my registry maybe but it said it was a clean unstall.

what do you mean service pack 1 for all versions?

You don't want to use the built-in Administrator on an every day use .

The IE should be one but the toolbars and such differs from user to user . Lets see what ESET shows and then we could see what the other user has .
