Ok well about a month ago my computer was just fine and everything worked like a charm then all of the sudden everything went to a crawl.
My cpu usage when everything is fine averages 50% and my dial up was averaging 42/kbs. Now my cpu is 1% to 10% on average and my dial up is 10/kbs!
It is absolute agony to try and do anything online, and all my programs are slower to.
I tried reformatting my drive after not getting any solution from my security program venues, and even after the reformat the same thing. I checked my hardware (seems ok) so I'm about to throw this computer into the lake.
I don't know where to go from here except to post a hijackthis log.
I've done scans after scan with Kaspersky, superantispyware, malwarebytes, etc......... nothing is detected just please shoot me and get it over with.
Maybe my recovery partition got hacked or corrupted? This is I would say the 7th or 8th reformat I've done in the past 3 years.

I checked everything that the help topic suggested as far as concerning "reasons why computer might be slow" and there wasn't much for me to do since everything seemed to check out and since there isn't much on my computer since it was reformatted recently.

However there is an Owner file under My documents and Settings that I cannot move delete because it was not removed and survived the reformat, also a bunch of a-squared's Hijackfree ".ini" files have survived the reformat that I can't access either.

Thanks

Here are the new logs:
