to rid yourself of virtumondo, follow the instructions at the top of the malware forum and then post a hijack log THERE

To tweak your computer...well, don't bother. There are very few actual tweaks to windows xp despite what you've read on many sites. Most tweaks accomplish little for general purposes, though some have some value for specific cases.

Windows XP is a well tuned OS (by this, I do not mean perfect or invulnerable--just well tuned)

Run general maintenace. Empty the trash, defrag the drive, run chkdsk...maybe set a static minimum size for your swap file (no max), reduce the number of programs running at start up
