Hi, my computer has been very slow lately, and it's not due to the lack of hd space. I have ran spybot and ad-aware, but it hasn't helped much. Also, i've had this file association problem before where all the icons and programs on my computer dont know what program they represent, so none of the programs worked... i have the fixes for these, and ran it once and it worked. hopefully this will not come back after the computer has been restarted. There is probably a bunch of spyware on my compuer.

Here is the hijackthis log:

Close all programs leaving only HijackThis running. Place a check against each of the following,

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://www.accoona.c...ampaign=wdz0605
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing


Click on Fix Checked when finished and exit HijackThis.

Post back a fresh HijackThis log and we will take another look. After you remove one of the AV's that is your main trouble.
