I'm new to this whole HijackThis software, but it seems to be the solution to a lot of problems. I'm helping a family member fix her computer, and I've noticed that the fssm32.exe process is using more CPU than Firefox, which already uses a lot. She complains that the computer is running slower than usual, and I believe that this process is causing it.

Could I get a bit of help looking through this log? I'm not sure what to look for as to what is wrong.
