As topic says, I'm just posting a routine hijackthis log in hopes to clear anything incase it's found.
My computer has been unusually laggy lately and I'm wondering if there's
anything I could do to clean any unneccesary programs from running in the background that does
not need to be started up when my computer boots.

Hello Whitesugar!

You may have noticed, but the Hijackthis log is impossible to read at the moment. Please post a new HijackThis log and in Notepad be sure to click on Format and place a check mark beside "word wrap" so the log will be easier to read. When you reply i'll take you through the log and see what we can find which might be causing the lag. Please also post your general system specs in the next post.

David

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, as Word Wrap is always used in my notepad files. Besides that, the log I posted looks perfectly fine to me, on more than one computer (my second also displays it "wrapped").

System Specs
Intel Pent 4 - 1.70GHz
1.69 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Microsoft Windows XP (Home Edition Service Pack 2)

Is the previous information what you were requesting? :thumbsup: Hopefully this helped.

Hi there Whitesugar,

I don't actually see anything in the logs here; they are clean. I see you are a neopets fan so i'll leave that stuff alone. When did the lag arise? The specifications you posted are fine, and that shouldn't be the cause. I see you have cleanup! installed, I recommend you give that a run to remove any temp files on your computer. Firstly start a new scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items (if present):

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\blank.htm
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\blank.htm
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - ~CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: AcroIEHlprObj Class - {06849E9F-C8D7-4D59-B87D-784B7D6BE0B3} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\ADOBE\ACROBAT 5.0\READER\ACTIVEX\ACROIEHELPER.OCX (file missing)


Make sure your Internet Explorer is closed and click on "Fix Checked" and exit HijackThis when finished. You might like to take a read of BleepingComputer computers own tutorial. read the selfhelp instructions which can be found here. Please use those instructions as a guide to speed up your computer, you will learn how to disable start up items which are taking precious memory.

The last thing I want you to do is to run Panda general malware scanner - although the HJT log is clean there still may be some bad files lurking on your computer:

Please go HERE to run Panda's ActiveScan
  • Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button
  • A new window will open...click the Check Now button
  • Enter your Country
  • Enter your State/Province
  • Enter your e-mail address and click send
  • Select either Home User or Company
  • Click the big Scan Now button
  • If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it
  • It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
  • When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan
  • When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location. Post the contents of the ActiveScan report along with a new Hijackthis log.
