DEP-Windows Explorer closing down

  toofy 19:47 04 Sep 2008

My PC keeps closing down Windows Explorer. With your help I have just got rid of a Trojan Horse Backdoor Ircbot. Does the fact that this warning DEP shows each time I start up mean something or all of Windows Explorer is infected? I have done full scans with Malwarebytes', in Safe Mode, which are now clean. How concerned should I be about this DEP warning and what to do to resolve this please?
(Is it OK to surf using Moz Firefox before it is sorted, we are looking for a house!?) Thanks.

Have read your threads. Will need a fresh head tomorrow to get to grips with all that.(spent about six hours 'self-tutoring' already today!) I have AVG Free, Zonealarm, Spywareblaster, Ad-Aware plus I use Mailwasher for e-mails. Thanks for your help.
