Once a day or so when I am on browsing, firefox becomes unresponsive. I ran a scan with malwarebytes, no detections. Then with AVIRA, also no detections. I do have spybot search and destroy, but have not run that this week. Avira did show 17 hidden objects found. I wasn't sure if that was a problem or not, so I googled for info on the file names but couldn't find an answer. I have Windows XP home ( (Service Pack 3) [5.1.2600]) My computer is an older one. Compaq Presario sr1230nx.
Below is part of the Avira log. Is it possible to tell by file names if these files are malware or not? I appreciate any help I can get. I apologize in advance if I have left out any necessary info. Thanks!

Hello, are you scanning "Showing Hidden Files" enabled?
I do not see this as an infection,but protected area as is the Page file.

The keys under HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet are a safe place to preserve data that is vital to your driver because the data is stored in the system hive. The system takes extra precautions to protect the system hive (for example, keeping multiple copies).

The HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services Tree
The HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services registry tree stores information about each service on the system. Each driver has a key of the form HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DriverName. The PnP Manager passes this path to a driver in the RegistryPath parameter when it calls the driver's DriverEntry routine. A driver can store global driver-defined data under its key in the Services tree. Information stored under this key is available to the driver during its initialization.
