Aaaalright! I thought I had a virus at some point and had you guys take a look at it. We did some fixes and ran some programs and it was supposed to be all set.

From what my girlfriend tells me this computer used to run about 8 times as fast... saving word doc's, anything. I'm not sure if it's a performance issue or what. I have spyware blaster installed, I use the lates version of ad aware and run it freaquently but there is never any change in the system's speed. Is it time to just take it to the pasture and shoot it? It's an HP laptop and it's only about 4 years old.

Thanks-

Flipt

Okay, I ran CW Shredder and it found no cool web spyware.

I found and checked all of the HJT things you wanted me to and fixed checked.

I rebooted in safe and the file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\htnseg.exe
was not found. ?

Here is a new HJT log, and thanks!
