Hi there,
First time I've posted, as always been able to fix stuff myself after reading on here.
Surfing the other day I clicked a link and the page didb't load even though the connection was exchanging info, I manually shut the computer down (6 secs on on/off button) after about 30 secs as nothing was responding, and I knew something was up.

After restarting I found everything was ridiculously slow, I looked in task manager and there was a Svchost.exe program using loads of CPU, so I ended it thinking that if it was the real deal my system would shut down. It didn't, and everything started to work at a much more reasonable speed. Then the EN sign on the task bar bar went a whitey/gray colour, then the whole taskbar. My heart sank, as a very similar infection hounded me out of my C: drive and the old partition I had with XE on it a couple of years ago. Just couldn't shift it. Also, after a short while surfing IE totally stopped connecting to the internet even though my wireless connection was working fine.

Also all the Icons on my desktop kept dissapearing and reappearing within the space of a second .

I followed all the instructions before posting a hijack this log and between and the various programs picked up things here and there. My system seems to be working a bit better, but could one of you lovely people check my log to see if anything is untoward?

Many thanks,
Jason

<EDIT - taskbar not going white anymore, but everything else still slow and messed up when I switch on. Also, don't know if its important, nut whatever this is seems to mess my tray icons up a bit as well, overlapping, etc)
