I find avgw.exe to be using 50% or more of cpu time whenever I look. So I suspect it is the reason my computer is much slower on the web than usually.
But maybe I'm wrong.
So I'll post this HJT log and hope some good soul will give me some advice.

regards,

ab :thumbsup:

Hello,

Nothing to worry about here, avgw.exe is a part of your AVG antivirus:

C:\PROGRAM FILES\Grisoft\AVGFRE~1\avgw.exe

Only check and fix next entries in your hijackthislog:
