I can't find a solution to my problem. For just one of a good number of examples, I have Sonique MP3 player. It starts ok, but then it takes, no joke, 5 seconds to close after clicking the close button. Other apps have similar reactions, but at startup time. I have run spybot S&D, Registry Mechanic, Ad Aware, CCleaner, ewido Security Suite, and a good number of other apps to try to clean up this mess, but it still persists.

Here is my Hijack This log:

Hi wacky60 and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of problems in the log. It is quite clean. having a program take 5 seconds to shut down is not uncommon. I have many programs which take that long or longer. It just depends on what resources the program has to release and what cleanup it has to do at the time of shutdown.

There are a couple of housekeeping items we can fix so let's do that.

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/customize/...rch/search.html
O2 - BHO: netMonior Class - {85810C93-C14C-11D5-BC4B-0050BA28E4FE} - blank (file missing)
O3 - Toolbar: 1toolbar - {2184469F-67DA-49CB-BF3C-9CAB5974A280} - C:\PROGRA~1\1toolbar\1toolbar.dll

Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Find the following files/folders and delete them (don't worry if they are already gone):c:\program files\toolbar\ <--folder
Ok, reboot the machine and you should be good to go.
