Why is my event log filled up?

This is what my event viewer looks like. I don't have any idea what it means so maybe some of you would. My computer has been running like shit. IE opens itself when ever it wants to(i mainly use firefox) and some times it takes for ever to open anything. Iv ran spybot and lavasoft multiple times and it hasn't helped.

You've definately got some bug, but it looks like, if this machine has been running for a while and the whole log is representative of this section, the W32 time service is filling up the log. You can safely disable this service on a machine you are running at home to stop a lot of these messages.....
