The system has been getting slower and slower as time goes on. In particular, the problem seems to revolve around local browsing such as Windows Explorer, slow start menu, taskbar slow to display, balloon help slow to display, open and save dialog boxes slow, etc.

Some details about the machine:

Athlon 1800, 512MB, using onboard Promise MBFastTrak133 Lite Controller w/ 2x40GB WD HD. Also have 80GB HD as slave on Primary IDE channel. D-Link DWL-G520 802.11g NIC, NVidia GeForce2, WinXP Pro SP2, PC-cillin Internet Security 2005. Using Trend Micro Firewall, MS Firewall is off. Using Webroot Spy Sweeper.

This evening, I ran Spy Sweeper and a virus scan. I installed and ran Ad-Aware and SpyBot S&D. Spy Sweeper reports no spyware. The virus scan reported no viruses. Ad-Aware found and removed four instances of the softomate toolbar and one overstock tracking cookie. SpyBot found nothing. Windows patches are current as of 2/15 and all malware protection was updated prior to scanning.

Finally, I installed HijackThis. The log report follows. Your help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob Chmara

Nothing bad here... I can advise you on some items to remove that are unnecessary and can be stopped.

You can fix these to free up some resources:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SoundMan] SOUNDMAN.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_05\bin\jusched.exe
