My computer has been slow for a while now.

scanningprocess.exe seems to be using a lot of memory and I'm not even sure what program it comes from.

My antivirus software is called Freedom, it comes for free from Rogers (my internet provider).

I have a program called "HP digital imaging monitor" in my system tray and I'm not sure how to get rid of it.

I expect there are many unnecessary programs running in the background which I am not aware of.

I also always have a "safely remove hardware" icon in my system tray, it comes back every time I restart!

I have gone through the Cleaning Guide, I have attached the results of the Malware scan, RootRepeal, and OTL.

I know my computer is getting old, but it is way too slow, help me please!!!!

Wrong forum for those logs.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools
