Hi all,

I have AVG installed w/constant updates, I run spybot - S&D on alternate days with ad-aware, I have spywareblaster and spywareguard loaded.

AVG now takes over 18 hours to run.
Switching from one tsl task to another can take 10 minutes. And there seems to be no let up. I reboot occasionally (I generally keep my machine running for the BOINC processes) but rebooting does not seem to help.
Windows task manager generally shows 99% idle.
I just bought Crysis and I want to play but....

Thanks for any help you can offer.
Pure Networks is Network Magic, my internal network manager. I have ZoneAlarm installed and force all MS products to request permission before they phone home (and do not do automatic updates)

Please take a look at this HT log and see if there is something suspicious that I have missed:

I don't think it is a problem that can be solved by looking at the HJT log. I am going to close this and open a thread where the question is more appropriate


Before you rush off, jack, what is this entry:
O20 - AppInit_DLLs: WIKI.DLL
The file, wiki.dll means nothing to me...? May I suggest you submit for examination?
==Please go to this web page http://virusscan.jotti.org/, click browse and submit this file for examination:
It is probably in system32\ or even Windows\ ... Actually, the path should be given in this subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
AppInit_DLLs ..... path for wiki.dll...?
Checking around a bit, I suggest you fix it with hijackthis [scan, check that O20 line's box, press Fix] and post a fresh log run after a restart.


I had a similar situation and by fixing the line "AppInit_DLLs: WIKI.DLL" it did seem to clear the problem up. More information here.
