I think there must be an infection since the CPU maxes out routinely. The browsers run super slow. I cleared cache and cookies. Tribalfusion, Questionmark, Revsci, Tacoda, and 2o7 cookies were persistant until manually blocked. In safe mode I ran Superantispyware, Adaware, Spybot, Malwarebytes, ATF Cleaner, FDfix, and FixwareOut. All had been updated except FixwareOut. No infections or threats with any of these except for the Zedo cookie found by Spybot.

I have 5 GB of free space on the drive 785Mb ram and run W2K. My broadband download speed has dropped 80% to about 1 Mb/sec. because of the CPU problem.

Is there anything in this HJT that shouldn't be running?

Here is HJT log
