I have seen this also. It is definitely malware related. Probably searching
web sites for email addresses to send infected messages to. I have our IDS
set to disallow users HTTP requests with abnormally long user agents.

Anyone recognize the CLSID in this HTTP_USER_AGENT?

  Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1;

I assume it's a BHO, probably spyware related.
