Combofix Log.txt 124.9KB
Brand new to the forum. I have an older Windows XP machine that downloads very slowly from the internet on our broadband provider. It should download at 15mbps (my laptop does via wireless router) but my desktop is stuck around 1.5 mbps at the best. I have run various utilities for malware and adware (temp cleaners, pc pitstop3, malwarebytes, spy bot, no adware, cc cleaner, speed up my pc, etc), defragged, etc, with no improvement. Finally ran ComboFix today (sorry, did not read your forum first suggesting wait until you instruct me to do it). Still slow but at least no harm done that I can tell. I have attached the Combofix log and startup files so someone can look at it and tell me if there is anything suspicious there or slowing things down.
