Hi,

I reached the end of my knowledge and don't know who else to turn to. Can you help please?

My PC has:
XP Home with SP 2
AMD Athlon 3000 (2.16 GHz)
with 2 GB RAM (of which 666 MB are currently used according to the Task Manager)
Harddrives:
C: IDE total 76 GB with 33 GB free
D: IDE total 76 GB with 66 GB free

F: and G: is one SATA drive.
F: 162 GB and 118 GB free
G: 70 GB and 40 GB free.

Doctor, my symptoms are as follows:
The PC freezes every minute for about 20 to 30 seconds and then lets me type and move the mouse again. I don't think this is due to lack of hardware resources. The PC was working fine before the weekend.

This is what I've done so far:
* Ran CCleaner to clean temp files and other cashes.
* Updated AVG virus definitions and ran a complete Virus check - None found
* Ran Spybot - Nothing found
* Ran AVG Anti-Spyware - Nothing found
* Ran Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool of the whole system - Nothing found
* Ran CWShredder - nothing found.

Now, could it be that I have indeed no malware, trojan or virus on my system, I'm not sure. I don't what else to run or check.

Below is the logfile from HijackThis:

I would like to mention that I'm running my own Wikipedia site as can be seen by the WAMP Apache and MySQL entries.

I am grateful for any advise and hope that I have given all the relevant information you might need.

Thanks
