I have a home built computer with Windows XP professional.

Processor -AMD Athlon 62 X2 Dual
Hard Drive - 300GB 7200 RPM
Ram - 2 GB

I am having trouble with it being very slow. I think I have a virus.

I have Done the following:
1. Run Sophos End Point Security
2. Run Spybot search and destroy
3. Run Adaware
4. Run Windows Defender
5. Run "Hijack this" (log file at end of message)

Below and attached is the Text from "HijackThis". Does anything jump out at anybody from the log file or are there any other other measures I should take?

Thanks. I am new to this site. Any help is great.
