I have a problem I am working on. I have a PC with XP pro on it.
The system has loads of problems starting with freezing up and ending up with a Not Responding title. Second with the task manager open to watch what is going on there (at times) No processing taking place while waiting for files to open or to run a program.
I removed AOL, and found out while running Webroot spyware sweeper some one deleted everything. Also while trying to fix what was going on the messed up the anti virus also.
So I and going to reinstall the antivirus, but while on the web sites freeze up and I can not get most spyware removal software to open up. I got on to PC magazines site and did some over the net sweeps and tests. It shows some damaged drivers, but that is it. I am going to try to install the antivirus but I have a feeling it is not going to work.
Any ideas!

First, I would try a spring clean
then if the problems remained, the steps of malware removel
then if the problem was still there, the HJT log process that is mentioned in the second link.
