hi,
not sure whether a virus/trojan horse or whatever is affecting one of my computers. While doing regular maintenance yesterday, I ran Adware, Spybot and AVG. I removed the necessary stuff for Adware and Spybot. For AVG, it detected Trojan horse Generic9.QZA on 1 file and a Worm/Generic.DYI on another file. Both these files are just on storage and were never used or installed. I have since deleted those files. That computer was running fine both before and after the above process. However, this morning when I turned on the computer, the whole computer became very sluggish. It takes a while to start up Windows XP and also takes a while for a programs to start running.

Would appreciate your kind help.
It takes a long time to execute any program on that computer. Managed to run HijackThis. System Restore has been turned off. The hijackThis log is appended below (have put x's in place of numbers for one of the ip address).

Thanks in advance.

hi miekiemoes, thanks for the reply. However, I have already re-installed everything on that PC and upgraded to Windows XP SP2, and everything's running fine. Will keep the above steps in mind in case I come across a similar situation.

Many thanks.
