Recently had guests at the house who used the computer. I just did the first reboot since they left and the MS installer was immediately trying to access http: (crl.verisign.net) to install some sort of driver manager. The site comes up in a browser with what looks like an FTP directory that seems odd. I can't think of a reason why verisign would need to install something like that on my side. The only other thing I can think of that is new is that DW started an account on a site.

VeriSign was just sold to Symantec, so who knows what they will be up to now.
'VeriSign Secured' sold to Symantec | Top Industry News, Statistics, Research and Trends | BNET (http://industry.bnet.com/technology/news-analysis/verisign-secured-sold-symantec/58362/ - broken link)

Perhaps they are trying to install some Symantec bloatware.
