Hi, This is my first post. I'm not quite sure what to post, so I'll try to explain everything. My computer (Windows XP) has been very slow lately, and I checked my Task Manager. PAVFIRES.EXE currently and always has 98-99% computer usage. My antivirus program is Panda Antivitus, so I am figuring this is its process. Often, my computer freezes, and I have little choice to either log off or restart my computer. When I do, it shows that explorer.exe is not responding. This often happens multiples times, until I am able to finally run a program.

I'm not sure if PAVFIRES.EXE is to blame, or explorer.exe, or what I need to do to fix this problem, or if I'm in the wrong forum!
Here is a logfile from HijackThis, if it helps. Please and thanks for the help.
