Ok, so I came back from a week long vacation, and my computer has been acting strangely since I turned it back on. I play some IRC based games, and they constantly freeze/super lag. My messengers will disconnect and reconnect at random intervals. My internet seems in and out as far as speed goes, sometimes refusing to load pages, sometimes working with absolutely no problems at all. The problem is mainly involving the IRC based programs that I use. I do trust these programs, and have been running them with no problems for over a year (regardless of them showing up on some Virus Scans). The IRC program that I use is MSC, and you will see it in the Panda Activescan log, but it's always shown up in virus scans, and it's NEVER caused a problem before, so I'm thinking that it has to be something else, I just can't find it as I'm not that experienced in virus/malware removal. I really need help getting this computer back to working properly, it's not the internet connection as I can use things like Xbox Live with no problems (which one would think would immediately disconnect upon the lag/freezing internet issues). Anyway, went through your process, and the logs are all below, any help at all is greatly appreciated. I also have Decker's System Scan, if you'd like a log from that program, just let me know.

I currently run Ad-Aware 2007 and Norton Antivirus on a regular basis, but have used many programs to try to fix this problem including: Unisoft's RegistryBooster 2, Kaspersky Online Scan, ATF Cleaner, Malware Bytes, Panda ActiveScan, and SUPER Antispyware (Free Edition). I have a fully updated XP according to Windows Update.
