Hello and welcome to daniweb,
Begin by doing these three steps;

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* 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.

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, download HiJackThis
Do a Full system scan and save the log.
Copy/Paste all three logs back here and we can take a look.

Looks as if ESET scanner removed some adware but other than that nothing was found.
You do have some unnecessary auto starting programs which can and really should be run just manually when needed. Don't know if this would be the cause of your slow down on the system.
All of those InCD listings are not necessry to run at start up and therefore run all the time in the background.
These three were all running when you did your HiJackThis scan;
C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero 7\InCD\NBHGui.exe
C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero 7\InCD\InCD.exe
C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero 7\InCD\InCDsrv.exe
You also had two instances of Internet Explorer and one Firefox open and running when the scan was done.
How long has this slow down been happening? Have you done a general clean up of the computer lately? Empty temp files and internet temp files lately? Have you done a defrag?
Is the computer slow all the time or just when it is online? If it is only when it is online then this could be the fault of your ISP and not the computer.
How are you connected to the internet?


i have a ccleaner installed in my computer so, all the temp files will be deleted and the computer has became slow after the internet connection i have installed wamp and text editors software like stuff this may be the reason? and my cousine always installs some wiered stuff like games, style xp and many others
the system is getting slow down all the time
thank u

thank u

If the slow down began with the install of all those items then I think you can probably narrow it down to that.
If games and other items have also been added then you can probably add those to the cause also.
How big is the hard drive? How much space is remaining"
How much RAM do you have installed on the machine.
It may very well be just too much in too small a space but give me that info ok?

Votes + Comments
u helped me a lot thank u

thank u holland,
i have 160gb hard disk, 1 gb ram, recently i have formated my computer so,
i hardly used around 70gb but i partioned c drive with 30 gb space and my software like text editors,anti virus etc are there in c drive i use window xp sp2 os .does i have to remove all those program files and place it in another drive. and i left 6gb space in my hard disk which is free now and i want to install linux as another operating system
its really frustating when i sit near my computer its is very slow


Think you have to look at the numbers involved here. You said you have a 160GB hard drive and you recently reformatted, if I read it right you say

i hardly used around 70gb

which says really, unless I am wrong, that more than half the drive was full before you reformatted. You created a 30GB partition and everything you had installed is there. I am not certain why you put everything in that partition. If you have 30GB in that partition that means you have another partition with about 130GB that is not being used. But then you say you

i left 6gb space in my hard disk which is free now

...do you mean you actually have three partitions? One with 30GB, one with 6GB and then another with 124GB? Or do you mean that you have two partitions, one with 30GB and you are saving 6GB of that to install Linux and then you have the second partition with 130GB empty? Sorry if I sound confused, but I am.
Was the hard drive previously partitioned or was it just a 160GB unpartitioned drive?
If it was previously partitioned did you reformat the entire hard drive or just one partition?
I have to be totally honest I know virtually nothing about drive partitioning but it sounds to me like you partitioned the drive incorrectly or are using this partition incorrectly. From what you have said it sounds like the rest of this hard drive isn't being used at all. That you are doing everything from this one partition meaning the partition is very nearly full so naturally the computer would be very slow.
Maybe I am totally wrong here but it sounds to me like you created a 30GB partition and are working 100% from this partition, this would be like somebody with a 30GB hard drive ONLY on the computer and the drive is pretty much full. That computer would be slow as molasses.

Here are some articles explaining some of drive partitioning, maybe it will help some
What Is Disk Partitioning?

Can I make my C: partition bigger by taking space from D:?
