hi, I've been having a problem for a couple of weeks now. My PC freezes on every 3d game I try to play. Some are worse than others, for example, most like Silent Hill 3 freeze as soon as the game starts, but if I press alt tab in the rare moments it unfreezes for a second or 2 I can get out of it. Others like Rise of Nations freeze once in a while but are almost playable. They seem to be taking up all of the CPU, and maybe thats the problem but I don't know for sure or how to fix it.

I don't believe I've installed anything new recently, after it started happening I scanned with ad-aware, search and destroy, registryFix, and I looked for new video drivers. I tried using the onboard video card, I tried disabling my audio card and my wireless network card. so far nothing has worked. I also tried disabling hyperThreading. Below are my system specs, let me know if anyone wants to see a hijackThis log or something else I've forgotten.

Try using Windows System Restore to reset your system state to a date that precedes this problem.

The version of Hijack This you are using is out of date,
You need to get the latest version which is v1.99.1

Extract the new version to your root drive, not the desktop and post the new log in our HJT forum here:

Yep, you're infected with the Zlob trojan at least. But we don't do logs in this forum. Follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log topic and post your log in the HJT forum Enthusiast has linked you to. Delete your old copy of HijackThis.zip and go by the instructions in the guide for getting the most up to date version. You won't be able to post a log from an older version.

Your infection is probably the source of your problem. To ensure you don't get help from someone who is unqualified to deal with HijackThis, which could be dangerous, I'll close this thread. If, after you have been cleaned up in the HJT session, you still need help with this issue, PM me or a moderator and we'll reopen this thread and see what else we can do.

We always did feel the same

We just started from a different point of view
