Hi...newbie here!

I own a Compaq Presario (2.7 GHz Intel Celeron processor, 512 MB RAM, 120 GB HD running Windows XP) about 3 or 4 years old and has grown progressively slow in its age. I've run registry cleaners, anti-spyware, virus software, windows washers, deleted temporary internet files, etc. with no noticeable improvement. I'm guessing one of those hijackthis logs is in order, but the "how to post a hijack this log) links I've found on this message board are broken.

Any help would be appreciated!

Your log is posted here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusing, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck with your log.
