ibm00001.exe? and a few other problems..
I have been having a few problems lately:
#1 - My computer will restart unexpectedly. Some days I'll come home from school, or wake up in the morning, and my comp will have been restarted. Sometimes it happens when I'm using it too. As you can imagine, it's terribly irritating, especially if I'm playing a game, or have lots of tabs open in Firefox that are not bookmarked, or working on an un-saved Word document.
#2 - Whenever my copmuter starts up (rebooting, or after being off), this error message appears on the desktop:
Windows cannot find '"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Folders\ibm00001.exe"'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.
What is that file? What does it do? Is there a way to get that file, or at least a way to stop the message from appearing? It doesn't seem to be adversely affecting my computer..
#3 - Sometimes when I start Firefox, or sometimes in the middle of a browsing session, a bunch of Internet Explorer pop ups will appear with titles like "Search Inqwire" or those fake "system error" pop ups, etc. I've done spyware and virus scans, and I had a few, but I got rid of them (I think) but it still does it.
If anybody has any ideas or suggestions about any of these problems, help would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
PS - I'm running Windows XP Pro
