hiya been having a few problems with my computer the highjack forum were very helpful and helped me out then it was running fine, a couple of weeks later some of the problems came back..
1) computer is very slow on booting up and very very slow running things
2) my anti virus takes ages to load up ( it never took aslong as it does now)
3) iv been having problems with my internet explorer only seems to want to work when it feels like it, for example... a page will pop up saying http not valid or internet explorer could not find page .. iv had to download firefox for back up just incase my internet explorer doesnt work
4)done a spyware scan and found a back door.

Use the application to quarantine all that it has found. All but the first instance appear to be tracking cookies which, while not something one wants, are not that harmful.
A sluggish computer may be caused by other things than malware. Have you performed maintenance on your computer recently? (cleaned unneeded files, reviewed applications that launch on start up, run checkdisk and defragmented your hard drive).
Regards,
John
