ZoneAlarm Pro, AVG, and Windows Defender.
ZA Pro has an anti-virus option. Since you have AVG free, you already have anti-virus. You don't need two.
ZA Pro also has an anti-spyware option, Windows Defender is anti-spyware and you do not need both running continuously in the background. If they are, turn one off, preferably the ZA Pro one. I can't remember if AVG free also has an anti-spyware component. If it does, the same applies. Only one anti-spyware running in the background, use the others as backup scanners/checks.
Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE old version. I would stop using Ad-Aware now.
What is Hi Jack?
I would think that some IE 8 Add-on is causing your problem. You can check this by running IE8 without any add-ons running;
* Go to Start > Run
* Type iexplore -extoff (that space between iexplore and -extoff is important).
* Press Enter
If that opens IE8 OK and if you are then able to open Tools, Help, Safety, etc, that shows that an add-on is the problem.
Your task then, (should you choose to accept it), is to find which add-on is causing the problem,
Tools > Manage Add-ons might help there. Disable all add-ons, restart IE, test, add one back in, restart, test, and so one.
I hope that helps.
Issue with page, tools, Safety, Help and all links on that side.
every time I try to use those items the Browser closes.
I tried to reinstall IE8 know such luck. For instance (page) I see send link, I click on it and the browser closes.
could it be a settings some where.
On my other computer IE8 works Great.
1) XP home
2) Zone-Alarm pro
3) Trojan Remover
5) Ad-Aware SE old version
7) Windows Deffender
X) All the above is up to date. Except Ad-Aware SE
Can some body help me please.
