This compaq is a joke for a what a 2.8 celeron should be.
I'v run ad-aware, SB - S&S, and AVG 6.0 to clear the obvious, just wanting to make sure it's clean - which to be honest i doubt.

Also, i get a constant error regarding HPWirelessmgr, this is the major issue as i get an error for this fairly often after a slow startup. Seing as the startup and shutdown of the laptop is slow, it might be hardware. would like to be able to sort it without having to send it back to be fixed via insurance.

Thanks for your time guys, u sorted me out before - would be honored once again!

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

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

-> When finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose Select All from the drop down menu and click Next).

-

Please delete your temporary files by deleting all files and folders that are in those folders (do not delete the temp folder itself) like for example
C:\WINDOWS\Temp\
C:\Temp\
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\
Also delete your Temporary Internet Files, be sure to also select delete all offline content.

> Reboot your computer.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic.

****NOTE: Please download Hijack This in my signature. You have an old version and it doesn't pick up the new threats very well. I just gave this log a quick look because there might be more going on with it. Once you download the new version, we will look at it more thoroughly because of what it provides us. <_<

I'm about to go out the door but giving it a quick look, the log needs a little work.

On the slow start-up, go to start>run>type in msconfig and look at what you have on your start-up. It's the last tab. Go to answersthatwork.com and find what you have on the start-up. That might help if you get rid of some of the items. Make sure they aren't vital tasks

Make sure you clean out your temp. files and defrag your disc. Other than uninstalling programs you don't need - if it's still slow - it may be another issue.

Run Hijack This again. Check these.

O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

clean out temp. files; run adaware and post a new log.

Later. <_<
