My Computer is runnig really slowly and it takes an age for any programs to start when I've just started my computer, a problem I've never had before. as far as I can tell, by running virus scans with Trend Micro, Panda TruPrevent, Spyware Doctor and Xoftspy that my computer is not affected with any sort of virus or malware. The only thing I can think of is that its simply overloaded with too many processes on startup which again seems unlikey as its a 3MHz processor with 512Mb DDR Ram. Its very frustrating and the only way I can really use my computer is to leave it on 24hours a day, which I really dont want to have to do. Can anyone tell me from my Hijack this logfile which I've attached if there is anything wrong or is there that shouldn't be there? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

p.s there are 59 processes running on startup, is this a lot?

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
