Dear Genius Helpers:
I have done so much to fix my laptop, XP media, SP2 that I'm not sure where to begin. As it says in the title, protection expired I wasn't aware of it and I've been working to fix the damage for about 2 weeks. I have cleaned all temp files several times, run: Adaware, CCleaner, Windows Defender, Advanced Windows Care, ComboFix and deep clean A-Squared. Found many bad files, deleted them. I installed Home version of Avast. I have attached a ComboFix log and would love for someone to take a look and see if there is something obvious that is causing the one thing [or more] I need help with: it takes forever to start [I've actaully turned off all start-up items] and very often, after starting [that is, desktop is up, folders are displayed on desktop and I have accesss to "start", etc] it goes into a deep sleep, screen is still on, nothing opens. I wait for sometimes 10-15 minutes, THEN when it "wakes up", every program I clicked on, every move I made, happens in split seconds. Sometimes it can open 15 windows, all stacked neatly behind one another. Thank you for any advice you can give. Deb

ComboFix logs should not to be posted outside the HijackThis forums. It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

Please create a new topic in the Am I Infected forum, explaining the nature of your problem. Describe pop-ups and system tray or desktop icons that have appeared. Explain what is "going wrong" with your computer. Note any tools you have used and their respective results.

If needed, we will direct you to our HJT Preparation Guide.

Thank you for using BleepingComputer as your malware removal source.
