Welcome to Bleeping Computer, please be sure you have read and followed the
Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log, Instructions for receiving help in cleaning your computer
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
All advice given is taken at your own risk.

I apologize for the wait, if your issues are not resolved, read the instructions posted above and then follow the directions below. If you no longer need help, I would appreciate a quick post letting me know so I can close your topic.

Any help graftefully received! Could also be low on memory (256Mb)?

(I run 1.25 GB's)
That is certainly not a lot of RAM, see this:
http://www.crucial.com/support/howmuch.aspx
Adding RAM to increase computer speed - Video Tip
http://www.helpmerick.com/adding_ram_incre...d_video_tip.htm

Here are good informational links, you do have what may be unnecessary Running Programs:

http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miekiem...owcomputer.html
http://kadaitcha.cx/
http://www.jrwhipple.com/computer_hangs.html

If that helps you take care of the problem, great. If not, please post a complete HJT log using ADD REPLYlike this:
Notepad > Edit > Select All > Copy/paste all of the highlited information.

This one is cut off somewhere around the middle.

Thanks
