Daughter's laptop HJT log

Hi everyone. Daughter is away at university and reports laptop slowing to a crawl and occasionally shutting down completely. Have waled her through CCleaner, Spybot and Adaware by email, which is a pain but it hasn't fixed anything. She reports the laptop is getting hot, but before sending it to the shop for a hardware check I've got her to do a HJT log.

I'm a beginner at HJT, but I was expecting to see something more obviously nasty in this log, unless the malware people are disguising their hasties as system files these days.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Download Ad-aware version SE Personal 1.06 from one of these locations:


Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
If you have a previous version of Ad-Aware installed, during the installation of the new version you will be prompted to uninstall or keep the older version. Be sure to uninstall the previous version.

1. Launch Ad-Aware SE and run the WebUpdate feature. (Click on the Globe icon > Click connect > Click OK > Click Finish.)
2. Set up the Configurations as follows:
-- Click the Gear wheel at the top of the Ad-Aware window
-- Click General > Safety & Settings: Check (Green) all three.
-- Click Tweak > Cleaning Engine > UNcheck "Always try to unload modules before deletion".
3. Click "Proceed"
4. Click "Scan Now"
5. Deselect "Search for negligible risk entries" as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat.
6. Select "Search for low-risk threats"
7. Run the scanner using the Full Scan (Perform full system scan) mode.
8. When the scan has completed, select Next.
9. In the Scanning Results window, select the "Scan Summary" tab.
10. Check the box next to each "target family" you wish to remove.
11. Click next > Click OK.
12. Reboot your computer and post a new hijackthislog

Then we'll get rid of the leftovers. It's important the adaware scan is performed, because I know it deals with some malware here present. :tazz:

Thank you. Daughter will throw up her hands and say too hard if I send her that list of instructions; I'll wait till she comes home next weekend and do it myself then post again.

If your daughter finds above instructions too hard to perform; it's better you perform it then. :tazz:
Actually, those are quite simple instructions, you don't have to delete files manually YET, that's for afterwards.
it's just important it's performed in exactly the same way as I describe and things will succeed. :)
