My computer has been very sluggish lately. I checked the task manager and found Rundll32.exe running. I ended it and it didn't reappear, but when I did a file search, it showed up several times as a PF file. I'm not sure if this is a cause for concern or not. I cleaned my computer out as best as I could using Spybot, Adaware, AVG Antispyware and Stinger.
If someone could take a look at my HijackThis log, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Welcome to BleepingComputer, sorry about the wait.
Infected logs are many and volunteers are few.
If you still have issues, make sure you followed these instructions:

I am not seeing any problems in the HJT log you posted. Rundll32.exe is a valid process, see this:

While hackers can use it, I see no evidence of that being the case. Have a look at this excellant information for a sluggish computer.

If I can do more, post a new HJT log and I'll take a another look.

Sorry about my very late response to your response. I haven't been able to get online in several days (not a technical thing).

Thank you for reviewing my log and reassuring me that everything is fine.

Thanks Again.
