it may be a lack of ram (virtual memory) getting more will help speed up the processes.
It may also be advisable to re-install windows after backing up if windows fix's fails...

You are using an outdated version of hijackthis.

Please download the newer version from the following link:

HijackThis Download Site

Once it is downloaded, extract the zip file to c:\hjt and navigate to the c:\hjt folder. Now double-click on hijackthis.exe and when the window opens, put a checkmark in the box at the bottom that states Don't show this frame again when I start HijackThis.

Then click on the button labeled None of the above, just start the program. You will now be presented with the main HJT screen.

Press the Scan button and then when it is done, the Save Log button. Save this log in c:\hjt, and then copy and paste the contents of the notepad it opens as a reply to this post.

Print out these instructions and then close all windows including Internet Explorer.

Then I want you to fix some of those entries. Please do the following:

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:

How to see hidden files in Windows

Run Hijackthis again, click scan, and Put a checkmark next to each of these. Then click the Fix button:

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode

Then delete these files or directories (Do not be concerned if they do not exist)

C:\WINDOWS\medload.exe
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\TB_SETUP.EXE
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MBSMAPI.EXE

Reboot your computer to go back to normal mode and post a new log.

Okayhere is the new hijackthis file. I however was not able to find those files you wanted me to delete in safemode. I followed all your steps and was still not able to find them. Also i have to aniviruses running and i have tried to uninstall my AVG 7.0 but it wont let me uninstall it. I have tried it in add and remove programs and also under the uninstall AVG icon itself. It says this version is already installed in my computer and i will have to remove this version before it can install what i am trying to install. The only thing is that im tring to uninstallit so i dont understand why it would try to install it.

Crap i missed something.

Fix this:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [updmgr] C:\Program Files\Common files\updmgr\updmgr.exe


Reboot and delete C:\Program Files\Common files\updmgr\

Also do you use kazaa on that machine, because if you dont there are two programs we should remove.

Now that your clean:

Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows ME or XP then you should disable and reenable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:

Managing Windows Millenium System Restore

or

Windows XP System Restore Guide

Renable system restore with instructions from tutorial above


Next,

This process will clean out your Temp files and your Temporary Internet Files. Please do both steps:

Step 1:Delete Temp Files
To clean out your temp files, click on Start and then run, and type %temp% and press the ok button.

This should open up the temp directory that your machine uses. Please delete all files that are found there. If you get an error when deleting a file, skip that file and delete all the others. If you had trouble deleting a file, reboot into Safe Mode and follow this step again. You should now be able to delete all the files.

Step 2: Delete Temporary Internet Files
Now I want you to open up Internet Explorer, and click on the Tools menu and then Internet Options. At the General tab, which should be the first tab you are currently on, click on the Delete Files button and put a checkmark in Delete offline content. Then press the OK button. This may take quite a while, so do not be alarmed with how long it takes. When it is done, your Temporary Internet Files will now be deleted.

Finally, and definitely the MOST IMPORTANT step, click on the following tutorial and follow each step listed there:

Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe and secure on the Internet
