Hi mods,
My issue is a nasty bug that makes loading really slow.Took me 30 minutes to log on just now.I'll get a pop up that says ''windows low on virtual memory''before I can log on to the web.In safe mode I've scanned with AVG which says no infections,Malwarebytes say's the same.Spybot caught one last week called virtumonde,which I hoped deleted it.I went and found a virtumunde removal tool online and it said no trace of it after I scanned.Superantispyware scan found seven trojans which after 3 scans said it was clean.
I've made a hijack this log,and a Kaspursky virus scan zip file as well.Should I post the results of the scans?Please tell me what I need to do to get the right information to you all.I may just have to take it to a professional repair person.This is the nastiest bug I have ever had.I hope you all can help.

Thank You

EDIT: Please do not post any malware logs in this forum. For now, let's explore the fact that it's an XP problem and not a malware problem ~ Hamluis.

Usually a "windows is low on virtual memory error", relates to low system resources. Can you post your system specs?

Also running more then one virus scanner on a machine can cause this. I would recommend not using AVG and Kaspersky. I would recommend using Avast or Avira.
