I already posted my logfile in the Hijack This logs and analysis forum and Oldtimer suggested that I posted this here. He said he found no malware or anything of the sort.

i'd love for any help I can get!

thank you!

Hello awesomepaulsome:

The HJT log is actually superfluous here. First some questions:

Did this you install a program just before this slowdown occured?

Did you make any changes to the system just before the slowdown?

Go through this guide for troubleshooting slow computers: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/44693/slow-computer/ It includes many different things to do in addition to checking for malware.

If this is a problem that just began recently (within the last three weeks), and the system functioned properly before, you can use Windows SYstem Restore to return your system state to a properly working condition.

To do so, click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Choose a date from before the problem began:
Follow the prompts on-screen.
