Looks like your friends computer is running too many processes. It would be best to shut most of them down by pressing alt+ctrl+delete and shut off the programs you dont need to use. Or you can simply just close programs that slow down your computer such as messengers and other things. I've had this problem too and if you run too many processes (such as programs) you can find your computer running slow. Hope this helps. Anybody feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, I'm still just a n00b.


That log does indicate some cleaning is necessary, but before you fix anything with hijackthis, it needs to be in it's own folder. To do this, right-click on the desktop, select New, Folder; give the new folder a name of your choosing (something like HJT or HijackThis would be good), and then drag the hijackthis.exe icon that is on the desktop into this new folder.

Now, after you've moved it, close all browser windows, scan with HJT, and post a new log please.


That log does indicate some cleaning is necessary

"Some" cleaning? That would be an understatement, Danny.... Yuck!


Aside from some pretty nasty infestation, the log also indicates that your friend is running a rather old version (1.98.2) of HijackThis. Please download the lastest version (1.99.1), follow dlh6213's instructions above, and post the fresh log.
