Once again I find myself calling upon the resident wisdom of this site. I've been helped before and you guys are marvelous.

Okay, shmoosing over (Although I'm serious!), here's the skinny:

Computer is running slow, and seems to be getting even slower, especially when my DVD burner/player is being used, so much so that it doesn't seem to play at correct speed. In fact, when I'm burning a DVD, even the starfield screen-saver slows to barely a crawl and even things like FreeCell and other games are stodgy with slow-mo audio cues, and I find that I'm getting more and more DVD errors than ever before (Although there seems to be no problems with the disc once a burn is completed). That all said, this slow-down doesn't seem to be quite as bad on another user desktop.

Upon desktop launch, I get a Invalid BackWeb Application ID "1940576" warning, but I've been told it's not a real problem, although it is an irritant. I do notice that during the launch process, there's something that flashes very briefly across the monitor, like a window that's trying to open, but it's there-and-gone so fast I'm not sure and I don't recall that happening when the computer was running better.

Run Ad-Aware, Spy-bot, and MS's spyware program, SpySubtract, and updated Norton AV.

Here be the log and as always, many many thanks . . .

Hello TomcatPeter and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I do not see any signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.

If you do not want to see the meesage regarding BackWeb at startup then you can fix the following item with HijackThis:

Start HijackThis and click the Scan button to perform a scan. Look for the following items and click in the checkbox in front of each item to select it:O4 - Global Startup: Compaq Connections.lnk = C:\Program Files\Compaq Connections\1940576\Program\BackWeb-1940576.exe
Now close ALL open windows except HijackThis and click the Fix Checked button to finish the repair.

Other than that you are good to go. Non-malware related performance issues can be addressed in the XP forum. I would suggest posting a question there and let them analyze if there are any items which need attention.

Cheers.

OT
I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
