Hey all, my computer is having a massive dificulty with pretty much everything lately. i have F Prot installed and the active firewall picks up a threat every minute or so, sometimes less. also when i boot up my PC in safe mode or normal i receive a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error that says:

Program C:\windows\Explorer.exe

and then has to terminate the explorer, which proceeds to boot up again to the same error. i am not sure if this is a problem with the system itself or a problem caused by malware. i took a hijack this log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
