I can't find a rational explanation for why this computer is slow and was hoping you could point me to some tools or diagnostics that would increase my ability to target the issue.

The computer does take more than 2 minutes to boot from cold.
Logging into our network takes just as long - and shouldn't, as other PCs at this site don't take that long.
Nothing unusual is found in msconfig when I check the startup tab. Nothing there is making is slow to boot.
Nothing in task manager is eating up resources to indicate potential virii.
Process Explorer (not that I'm an expert in using it) reports back mostly clean.

So, I'm scratching my head. What should I be looking for or trying next? Any general ideas?

Correction: searchfilterhost.exe is currently eating 40-50% of my processor power. But the computer performs sluggishly even when that process reads at 0% of my processor power.

I'm not sure what to make of that result.

You have a HJT log posted and soon to be answered
You should not be making any changes to your system while going through the process

Sorry. I have several computers. This one is different than the one I have an HJT log posted for.

If those computers were networked...you probably ought to wait until your potential malware issues on the one system...are clarified.
