I originally posted in the WinXP section as "2 slow", a couple of days ago. I was directed to the "boopme" post about using Malwarebytes Anti Malware and as suggested by "bootme" I am posting the log below.

I doubt that 1 infected registry key can be the cause of the deterioration of my compuer, but perhaps someone could tell me how serious this particular key was?

Thanks agani for all your help

Hi JXBlack,

It is a browser helper object which means it's a hijacker but in this case the file is Xena toolbar. Most toolbars just change registry entries and act as Google while using the info you type in in a slightly suspicious way but this one redirects you to a number of fake security sites all of which will infect you further if you believe the claims and also provides a variety of pop-ups. Most importantly Xena is also part of the high risk Smitfraud infection.

It may only be one trojan but it's one of the worst. Check here for more
