Not being a computer genius this is the only way I can describe the state of my computer. It's not broken, but it just doesn't act right. Programs are crashing all the time, some programs won't install and other off-color behaviors.

I can only guess there is malware I'm missing in standard scans, so I'm going to post a hijack this log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sincere Thanks
