I run Windows 98 (unfortunatly) and have IE6. Lately my computer has been freezing (mouse\keyboard\alt+ctrl+del don't work) as I type a URL into the address bar on IE6. It will un-freeze about 15 seconds later for the first 6 times or so, and then it's froze for good and requires a restart. It also sometimes will freeze when using Windows Explorer functions(opening or saving files). I have Avast Anti Virus (my Norton expired) and Spybot Search & Destroy running on my computer. I also used trendmicro's free online scanner, but couldn't find any problems. This may or may not have something to do with the problem, but my CD-Rom drive occasionaly opens up and I cant shut it.. If I push it in,it resists and comes back out.
The most recent changes are that I recently got cable internet and installed a network pci card for it.
Also, my Norton expired so I uninstalled and installed Avast anit-virus. Could a virus have attacked while I was momentarily unprotected?

I will include my Hijak This log file:

Thanks for any help!!!!

I dont really see anything bad here other than:

See if this helps:

This process will clean out your Temp files and your Temporary Internet Files. Please do both steps:

Step 1:Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.

This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.

Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.
