hey guys, i orginally posted this in the hijackthis log forum but i received no reply. im guessing its related to the issue that no virus or spyware has actually been detected. a link to that post will be at the bottom incase you want to check out my startup options. heres the problem...

my computer has been running extremely slow, it has happened in the past and a reformat fixes it, however it always comes back. system restore to an earlier date worked about 2-3 times to fix the problem but eventually became useless. i have run the following programs: ad-aware, spybot s&d, mcafee virusscan, and windows defender. all of these programs are up to date, but have found nothing to fix the problem.

when i view processes running the programs that slow my computer down the most are the ones that i am using normally; aim, firefox etc. nothing suspicious is bogging it down. i have run msconfig and disabled all startup options, however everything still runs slow.

the computer runs slow for the most part, but struggles the most when starting programs etc. when running in safe mode everything runs smooth with no delay. when starting normally however, even the windows startup sound skips, this part is most confusing to me as spyware or a virus couldnt be loading that quick, correct?

i own a dell dimension 2400 running XP, 1 gig of ram and 2.39 celeron processor.

thanks in advance for your help, it is greatly appreciated.

Grinler has responded to your HJT log, kable.
He's asking that you post a fresh HJT log, if you still need help.

Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
