I have never seen this happen before. This computer freezes every minute or so, for about 20 or 30 seconds. The entire system will be locked up, accepting no input and apparently processing nothing. When the system returns everything proceeds as normal. I ran spybot S&D and spyware blaster, which have always been an effective combination for me before, and hijack this displays nothing abnormal. this computer hasn't been used much and there aren't a lot of programs installed that could be causing incompatibilities. any suggestions?

Welcome to the BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum spacecadet :thumbsup:

First please delete:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Firefox downloads\HiJackThis_v2.exe

Now download and install Hijackthis.
This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT to C:\Program Files\Hijackthis by default.
A desktop shortcut can be created during install under 'Select Additional Tasks'.

***************************

Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad".
This will change from what we know in 2006 read this article:
http://www.clickz.com/news/article.php/3561546

You are well advised to remove the program now.
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs if present:

Viewpoint
Viewpoint Manager
Viewpoint Media Player


Then restart your pc.

***************************

You seem to have problems with Mcafee,it does'nt appear to be running as it should.

As a result of that you've no virus protection installed.
Download\install one of the following freeware options from the choice below.
Once installed update its definitions and then run a full system virus scan.

AVG7 Free Edition Antivirus:
http://free.grisoft.com/softw/70free/setup...ree_446a965.exe

Avast! 4 Home Edition:
http://files.avast.com/iavs4pro/setupeng.exe

Active Virus Shield
There's a nice setup tutorial Here:
http://www.activevirusshield.com/antivirus/freeav/

***************************

Please download Combofix and save to your desktop:
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/Beta/ComboFix.exe
Note:
It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop

Close any open browsers.
Double click on combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
When it's finished it will produce a log.
Post the C:\ComboFix.txt into your next reply.
Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running.
That may cause the program to freeze/hang.


Also post a new Hijackthis log please.
