Firstly - to put your mind at rest the Moderator rhsaffer61 is aware of my contribtion to this thread. He will still monitor the situation but has asked me to assist rather than you wait - while he is busy with many others.
When you have run the TFC and the defrag
Your autoruns shows that you are running Comodo Total Internet Security, including Sandboxing and Microsoft Security Essentials. You cannot run the two together - in real time.
They will result in serious slow down, fight each other and possibly negate each other so you actually end up with less protection, or indeed none.You need to decide which you are keeping. - as the two running are I am sure the major cause of the slow down - how long have you had both please
Personally I would opt for Microsoft Security Essentials, it uses less resources than most others, it is unobtrusive, frequently updated of course and workds in total conjucntion with Micorosft Malicious software removal tools.
If you feel you need the additional protection of a Firewall other then that included in XP, then you can run the free Comodo Firewall. If you go that way, make sure you install ONLY the firewall.
You also have running on Task Scheduler Spybot Search and destroy - which I would recommend you uninstall and use SAS which you also have.
In relation to your browsing we recommend this which you can run, once a week or so, depending on the intensity of your browsing.http://www.atribune....id=25&Itemid=25
Note it caters for IE on the Main tab and Firefox and Opera.
If you use IE do not click the prefetch, as XP will simply rebuild it and until it does so.
Also be aware that it will delete saved passwords from websites - ie: your email etc, so make sure you know them.
It uses no resources and you can run it as you need.
It is more efficient than the IE - Delete browsing history
Additionally always keep an eye on Add-ons on IE you have quite a few on the Autoruns report
I am certain you can get rid of many.
Go to IE and click the tools, then click Manage Add-ons
You will then have as per my screenshot
On each heading in the left hand pane ie;
Toolbars and extensions
Click the entry in the main window and then click disable.
You can safely disable - all Update Notifiers
Helper onjects etc
AND certainly your Last Pass helper and your Google Toolbar Helper. - when you disbale the google one check the details on the popup window that asks if you wish to disable other google services..
You can always go back of course and re-enable whatever you wish
The more you have there, the longer it takes IE to load.
FINALLY you have a number of items which can be disabled on start-up.
The more that is included in the startup list the longer XP takes to load.
We can look at that when you post back after the defrag and my recommendations here.
Additionally there are a number of entries in Autoruns indicating file not found - and we can deal with that as well.
