I posted my Hijack log below.

Not sure what is causing it, but for the last couple days, when I have been logging into IE, I get the standard message of "Internet Explorer has encountered an error and needs to close'. I have been able to push the error message aside and use IE, but it was an annoyance.

Now, my computer seems to be coming to a halt. It has been slowing down steadily for the past several days, and it is now almost unusable.

I am not sure what is going on. This is my business computer, so it is VITAL that I keep it up and running. To be honest, I am pretty frantic. Any clues?! HELP!!!!
