      This sounds like you have an advert program (like Gator), trojan or something similar trying to access the Internet when you start.

      THIS IS NOT A NORMAL SYSTEM FILE

      If you have an application called Spring or Springhelper that you use, then this relates to it. If it makes no sense at all, copy to floppy and delete the file and all references from the HDD, the start up area and the registries. Reboot and see if the system performs better, then wait until something asks for the bloody file and see what it relates to.

      I agree with my fellow…you seem to be a victim of spyware/datea miners /trojans etc etc..

      something loads along when you start your browser..
      1- get a good spyware remover..

      Ad aware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com is one of the most recommended one..

      spybot’s search and destroy is another one…you can download it from

      security.kolla.de

      and sometimes a improperly written BHO (browser helper object ) also causes such problem
      the one recommended to keep a track of bho’s is bhocop you can get that from

      hope it helps..
