Greetings all on the lovely rainy weekend.

I am having (as so many do) problems with computer speed. I ran a Hijack This and have a log and am wondering where to post to see if anyone can tell me what is on there that I don't need.

I have a Dell Dimension C521, bought about 4? years ago. I use firefox for browser. I added 2 memory cards and a graphics thingy (sorry, don't remember what it actually is) for the sake of an adobe flash game that I play. Which runs frustratingly slow. That is really my main interest in clearing up / speeding up my computer.

I use / have:
/ Malware Bytes
/ Spybot (usually get only 'Right Click')
/ Auslogics registry cleaner+ (have a subscription but dont' think I am using it to potential)
/ had Ad-Ware and removed it based on something someone said, and am wondering now if I should re-install it)
/Avast anti-virus (free version)
/Comcast connection at their second highest speed. 16 something / Only one speed higher, no one said for what I do, that I would need it, including other gamers.

Any help greatly appreciated!
Thank you,

And just saw message to not post problems in this forum. Eeps! Although I joined last year, I have never used site that I can recall. I am not sure where to post my above posting.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Once you have created the new topic, please reply back here with a link to the new topic.
