My computer has been running really slow. I'm thinking it's because of some kind of spyware, adware, virus, etc. Just need a little help to see if it is one of those things.

Crudware can certainly slow down your computer, as can failure to do normal maintenance, and having too many applications running in the background. If you do not have Ad-AwareSE and Spybot Search and Destroy installed, using these to check your hard drive for malware is a first step. Both of these are free for the download, and require definition updates much like your resident Anti-virus.

no, i did that before and the same things come up and i delete them.. then i check the next day and they are still there. This is when I check with Ad-aware and Spybot. I was thinking you would ask me for a HJ log..

If you wish to post a HJT log, here are the instructions which you should read carefully.

Please however be patient, since other members may be ahead of you in the queue, and logs are taken in a first-posted, first reviewed sequence.
