When I start up my computer, the explorer shell starts but soon (10-15seconds) shuts down.
I can restart it using Task Manager but it does not run for long. One time it started and ran for
15 seconds and shut down for 15 seconds - on and on like that. I have noticed that imapi.exe
starts up before explorer.exe shuts down and then it shuts down.

If I get a program open I can use it although the computer runs slow at times. I have ran
sfc /scannow and I have even expanded explorer.exe, imapi.exe from my XP CD to replace the
original just in case, (of what I am not sure :))

Below is the Hijackthis logfile and the malwarebytes Anti Malware log.
Panda would not work in FireFox. It gives an error and closes. In IE I could not see any yellow
bar to install the ActiveX control.

Thanks in advance for your time on my problem.

Hi Rorschach112

Thanks for the quick reply. Itr seems the problem has been fixed. I ran the ATF Cleaner and
Malwarebytes - Malware-Anti Malware as instructed in the Geekstogo HiJackThis read this first post.
The Malwarebyte program found a few trojans I listed below. They have been removed from my
machine and all is well. It pays to heed the read me post prior to posting I guess. I was doing as I
was posting :) Thanks for the reply but this matter is solved. The GeeksToGo are the best :)
