And what specifically are you trying to do here?
Are you having any specific issues, or is this just a general cleaning?
We do not look at hijack this logs in this forum. They are used in the malware forum. And actually we do not use hijack this anymore because it is not updated frequently enough. We have our own.

When done restart computer and then:
Download Temp File Cleaner (TFC)
Double click on TFC.exe to run the program.
Click on Start button to begin cleaning process.
TFC will close all running programs, and it may ask you to restart computer.
Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
FYI:A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there. Go HERE to get more information about why registry cleaners aren't needed.

Your hd is getting close to the full point.
You should never let a drive get below 10% free space and preferably stay around 12 to 15 percent free.
I would suggest possibly uninstalling un-needed programs or files that you do not use or need anymore.
What I would suggest is Uninstalling All Programs you don't need or don't want anymore through Add/Remove Programs
Do this by going to
Start and then to Control Panel
Click Add/Remove Programs
Carefully choose the program(s) you don't need
Click on each Program then click Change/Remove and Follow the Uninstall Instructions
You may be prompted to Restart your computer.
Restart once you have all the programs you don't need uninstalled.
Be careful not to remove anything needed by your computer, some of which you may be unfamiliar with the name,
