Hi there, I'm brand new to this site and have a very severe problem, a friend of mine suggested I take it here. My computer has been acting ridiculously strange lately including slow load times and periods of extreme lag. I've changed my virus protecting three times in the last two days and have been attempting to combat what I believe to be viruses and malware to the best of my extent. I am now running HijackThis in an attempt to help me figure out what is causing the problem and I believe there to be a second administrator on the computer that I did not authorize. I am the only one in the household with access to this computer so I doubt that it could have been an inside influence. I cannot find this second administrator using conventional means but saw the username appear when I was still using the Rising anti-virus problem, it was Mcx1. Can someone please help me remove this intruder and restore peace to my computer?

I have uploaded a log, feel free to take a look at it in hopes of discovering my issue(s)

Thank you very much.
