So whats happening is my computer is lagging periodically. My core temp is 95c and its ran that way since I bought it 2 years ago. I've ran an avast! scan and a Malware Bytes scan and they both come out clean. My computer is well ventilated, clean, and I replaced the heatsink 6 months after I got it. I think its a virus rather than a heating problem because like I said, its ran like that for 2 years. Well to sum it up, I have no idea how to read a log and don't want to delete anything important. Also, to clarify, it's not my network that lags just the computer itself.

You sure its reading right? The max temp is 55-71C, I think at 95c it would be shutting down on you

AMD Athlon II X4 630 - ADX630WFK42GI (ADX630WFGIBOX)

V core (V) ? 0.9 - 1.425
Maximum operating temperature (C)55 - 71

I'm sorry for any confusion. I was talking about my GPU temp not CPU. Also, the problem has been going on less and less as time goes on. I'm still clueless.

Look in your add/remove programs panle and uninstall: somototoolbar if present

I would also install Malwarebytes which you can keep and use as a anti-malware app. The free version must be updated manually and a scan started manually;

Please download the free version of Malwarebytes to your desktop.

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.

If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.

Once the program has loaded, select Perform FULL SCAN, then click Scan.
When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Be sure that everything is checked, and click *Remove Selected.*

*A restart of your computer may be required to remove some items. If prompted please restart your computer to complete the fix.*

When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt
Post the log in your reply

I just assumed it was your CPU. Have you visited the HP website and looked for info about your card? They have pretty good information, FAQ and troubleshooting sections.

There was no toolbar in my programs. The MalwareBytes scan came back with nothing and so did avast! like I said in my original post :) everything seems clean but there are some sketchy looking items in my HiJack-This log which is attached to the original post as well.
