Hi and thanks in advance. I'm trying to avoid the dreaded fdisk, but I'm not able to find anything using a variety of scans (MWBAM, Avast, Spybot seek and destroy) I didn't see anything unusual on my safemode renamed HJT scan either. Basically what happens is anytime I run a browser (especially something with flash) the system starts to lock up and i cannot end processes or applications from the task manager.

Here are my scans:

I forgot to mention i also noticed 2 HelpAssistant files under Document and Settings and I have never asked for assistance. I did a fixmbr thinking it was the boot record trojan and deleted the files (have not come back yet). this was done previous to coming here and being told not to do anything...

Edit: After some initial testing on various browsers and various sites - my comp seems ok... If you guys think so too please let me know and we can say it is resolved.
