Howdy, newbie poster!
If anyone has any pointers I'd be very grateful!
Namely, on connecting to the internet, my CPU stays at 100% and will continually freeze in programs such as Outlook, Frontpage, Acrobat etc...
Even after initially loading Windows (which can and does take up to 10 mins) it will be v-e-r-y s-l-o-w...

Which is annoying as it's barely 2 years old. I've got techies here to look at it for me - they've ghosted it a couple of times, given me a new D drive, but after an initial calm period...it just goes loco. I've run Ad Aware, Spybot, TD3 Diamond, Windows Beta Spyware...all the recommended spyware and trojan programs and it's turned out clean. I really don't know what to do! It's a definite software problem.

Anyway, I'll post this first hijack of mine, although it ran through five error messages like this:

An unexpected error has occurred at procedure: modMain_CheckOther1Item()
Error #5 - Invalid procedure call or argument

Please email me at merijn@spywareinfo.com, reporting the following:
* What you were trying to fix when the error occurred, if applicable
* How you can reproduce the error
* A complete HijackThis scan log, if possible

I'm not much of a tech expert in this area....Anyone who can explain this to me is a miracle worker...if it tells you anything...even better!
