Do you have any anti-virus programs? If so do a full search with them - AVG is a free antivirus program.

If you suspect a malware issue, please go to the malware forum in my signature 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.

My computer is moving extremely slow and I'm afraid that there are viruses, spyware, adware or something that is slowing it down. I have Microfsoft Antispyware and Spybot and it helps a little but not much. I have Windows XP and it's slow when starting up. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
Also try 'unchecking' unwanted items at start up, run disk cleanup if you havent and cleanout the junk, defragment your HDD. Also as tripb said, maybe if you run too many applications and your RAM is insufficient this may happen.
