I send a prior message and attached a Hijack this log copy.

The response I received asks for this Log again.

Apparently, it did not go through as an attachment, so I will try again by attaching it to this message.

Basically, I have XP on a Gateway ML 3109 Laptop which has a Celeron processor, not the greatest but sufficient for my purposes which is mostly word processing and internet use.

Of late, the computer has been freezing while idling on the internet. I have
broadband high speed service.

This happens sometime also when I am not on the internet.

Start up has gotten very slow, so I did delete some programs from startup using msconfig.

I made a Hijack This Log which I am attaching. Please analyze same for me.

Note that I regularly clean the disk and defrag same. also use Malabye software and
MRU blaster as well as Anti Spyware. I also clear the cache fairly regularly by using flushdns in DOS.
I am beginning to think this may also be a heat problem. Advice?
Thanks for your help.

Good evening. :)

HijackThis is no longer widely used due to it's failures to keep up with the changing face of malware. The link that Orange Blossom posted in your thread here points to a thread that lists a number of steps, including the use of a log producing tool called DDS - this is a replacement for HijackThis.
As OB posted, you need to follow the instructions as best you can and if you cannot complete a step, skip it. Once you have done so, start a NEW thread, post a brief description of your problem and include the two logs that DDS produces as the instructions say.
The reason that you need to start a new thread is that Helpers will review those with zero replies and my posting to this one will cause it to be overlooked as already receiving help.

I'll close this one for the sake of tidiness.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
