Hello everyone,

Recently, I have noticed my computer taking much longer to start up than usual. Also, my programs take a little longer to start as well. I haven't installed or uninstalled any programs for a while. I have done all the scans (CleanUp, Ad-aware, CWShredder, Spybot S&D, Ewido Security Suite, TDS-3) which had little help. Could you guys check out my HiJackThis log and tell me if you see anything unusual? Thanks.

Here is my log:

Doesn't look bad. I wouldn't run CWShredder unless you have a reason to. It can cause problems being run on a healthy machine.

Don't know if checking these off in hijack this will make much of a difference, but it could help some. I will give you a link at the end of this post for you to check out.

Please download CleanUp! - Don't run it yet.

Download - HomePage

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Click on the button labeled CleanUp!.

When it finishes it will prompt you to restart Windows - there will be one or two files it cannot delete when Windows is running - however, they will be deleted next time Windows starts up.

Here is a great tutorial on some things you can do to make your ocmputer more efficient.

I don't think I will change anything if it looks good, but I will save your post in a .txt file in case I change my mind.

Unrelated to HiJackThis, what else do you think could be slowing me down? Think it could be hardware? I am only asking this here so I know where to properly post a new topic elsewhere...

The advice I gave you will speed up your computer. Also, some of it needs to go for performance purposes. The longer you keep it on there, the longer it will continue to attract more problems. But it's up to you.

The next time you need it will be downloaded when you give it permission. Glad the rest helped. :tazz:
