Hello every1
I'm wondering abt Explorer.EXE warning in KIS log since I cant figure out the reason for them. ESPECIALLY can anyone explain 2nd and 3rd last line about " internet explorer plugins "

Have you checked which IE add-ons are running in the background? It could be one of those. Try disabling them one by one. I doubt you even need most of them. Add-ons are what Microsoft now call Plugins.

It's easier if you do it with IE open, click on:

Tools
Manage Add-ons
Enable or Disable Add-ons.

You want the SSVHelper and Sun Java add-ons as both of these are for Java support but:

Adobe PDF Reader
Web Anti-Virus Statistics
Windows messenger

Are completely pointless. I disable all of them. You can still open PDFs in IE with the Adobe one disabled and still use Windows Live/MSN Messenger fine if it's disabled. The Web Anti-Virus Statistics add-on just displays stats and IMO is completely pointless. It has some use though if you happen to like it. It offers no security benefit though.

I don't know what "IDM download manager" is but I guess "you" want that.

Have you looked at the registry key shown in the Report? Does it help at all? I've had similar messages before in my KIS report. I ignored them as they're not doing any harm and they went away by themselves.

p.s - I would also run Check Disk, that may help. It could be a general Windows issue.
