Hello SerbOz and welcome to daniweb.
Your HJT log show a huge number of programs running in the background during the time of this scan which could certainly be part of the problem of the slowness of the computer. It also shows 4 entries named Adobelm_Cleanup.0001 which are also known to decrease system performance significantly.
Also running is Azureus which is a file sharing program, this tells me that you do this probably on a regular basis. P2P file sharing can be very dangerous because you really don't know where or who these files are coming from which pose a risk to the system.
I am going to ask you to TURN off this program for the duration of this clean up.

I would like you to take the following steps;
Please Download ATF-Cleaner.exe by Atribune
You can put ATF-Cleaner on your Desktop for easy access. Leave it for now.

Please look in Add or Remove Programs (Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs) for any suspicious items and note them for us in the event you need to post back for further assistance.
Please Enable the Viewing of Hidden Files. Be sure to uncheck the Hide Protected Operating System Files option! This should be done in the event that we need to track down and manually remove some baddies.
Please Download Malwarebytes'Anti-Malware but don't run it yet, just update and close the program.
Please also Update your Anti-virus program. Don't run it yet, just update.

Once you have done all that then please do the following;
Shut down the computer. Disconnect from the internet. I mean actually pull the plug so that the computer is NOT connected.

Once you have done that reboot the computer. Be absolutely certain that the Azureus program I noted above is not running. If necessary stop it via the Task Manager.

RUN ATF-Cleaner.exe.

-- Click on ATF-Cleaner to run it
-- Where it says Select Files To Delete, Check the Select All Option
-- Click Empty Selected > OK

If you use Firefox browser, do this also:

* Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
* Click the Empty Selected button.
* NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, click No at the prompt.
Run a FULL SYSTEM scan with your anti-virus program and have it Fix/Remove/Quarantine everything it finds.

Next run a Full System Scan with your Anti-virus program and have it Fix/Remove/Quarantine everything found.

Next Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Reboot the computer. Then shut it down again and re-attach the internet.

Reboot the computer.

Please Run the ESET Online Scanner and attach the ScanLog with your post for assistance.

* You will need to use Internet Explorer to to complete this scan.
* You will need to temporarily Disable your current Anti-virus program.

* Be sure the option to Remove found threats is Un-checked at this time (we may have it clean what it finds at a later time), and the option to Scan unwanted applications is Checked.
* When you have completed that scan, a scanlog ought to have been created and located at C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt. Please post that log for us as directed below.

Finally run a NEW HJT full system scan and save the log.
Post back here with ALL requested logs.
