Hi all from a newbie on this forum, which is great, I have read many of the topics and posts and have been impressed by the responses.

Now its my turn please. My laptop has been infected ove rthe years and was gradually getting slower and slower, and finally succumbed to Spyware and Malware with advert pop ups etc. I have run various antivirus systesm and ccleaner and have removed all tojans and malware etc nothiong shows up on scans on 3 different systems. Ccleaner also fixed 2129 issues inthe registry, all now shows clean, but I still have exporer.exe running at 100% all the time.

I have run hijackthis and the below is the log.

Now it needs to be said that although this is a works laptop and I do not have access to administrator rights, it has been used at home by both the wife and my daughter, so god only knows what has been downloaded and could have infected the machine. I am not a major techie, but can find my way around a PC. I recognise quite a lot of the entries on the log as valid software, but dont know about a lot of it, can anyone out there help me please.....
