Hi everyone, this is my first post ... and I'm throwing this computer on the mercy of the forum. :tazz: It was basically left unmonitored for 5 different users (each with questionable usage :) ) for years. I performed all the requested steps (Cleanup through Windows updates) with the exception of Ewido, since this computer has the 98 OS. I did perform the on-line Trend Micro Housecall. Eight (8) hours later and numerous freezes/crashes, I'm ready for the next step!

The following is the HijackThis log after Windows update and re-boot. Please bear with me as I am helping my father-in-law with this process, so the time between steps will most likely be lengthy as I will only be able to implement them on certain days of the week (travel involved). I will, however, try my best to not waste your time. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
