Computer moves soooo slow. Please look at my hjt log to see if the problem is there. Thank you.

Hi osb139, welcome to DaniWeb :)

Based on the contents of the log you posted, there are two issues you need to take care of before we proceed:


1. Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7

The above entry indicates that you are using a very old version of HijackThis.
Please download the current version (1.99.1), run it, and post the log that version generates. The new version does a more thorough scan of Windows 2000 and XP systems than does the older version. See #2 below before running the new version, though.


2. C:\Documents and Settings\Mom\Local Settings\Temp\HijackThis.exe

The log entry above indicates that you are running HJT from within a Temp/Temporary folder. Please do the following:

Create a folder for the new version of HJT outside of any Temp/Temporary folders and move hijackthis.exe there now. A folder such such as C:\HijackThis or C:\Spyware Tools\HijackThis will do.

One of the normal steps in eliminating malicious programs is to entirely delete the contents of all Temp folders. Given that, if HijackThis (and other data that you care about) is living in those Temp folders, it will be erased along with everything else!
Temp/Temporary folders are just that- Temporary. They are not meant for permanent storage, as their contents are often delete in the course of troubleshooting, by running disk clean-up utilities, etc.

DMR, Sorry for delay. Been down with strep throat, crawled to computer and so happy to get your message. I created a folder in program files, downloaded and installed Hijack This 1.99.1. I also updated my Ad Aware and installed Spybot. Here is the new HJT.....

Sorry to hear about the strep; that's no fun... [img]http://www.stevewolfonline.com/Downloads/DMR/Visuals/sick.gif[/img]

Your log is entirely free of any signs of malicious infections, so I doubt that's the source of the system slowdown. Can you give us more detail/background on the problem, please?
- Did you start noticing the slowdown after installing or updating a certain program?
- Did it coincide with anything else that might have happened to the system (adding/removing hardware, for example) ?
- Did the system start bogging down gradually, or was it a case of seeming to be fine one day and slow the next?
- Give us the system specs, especially for the RAM and CPU.


You can see which programs and processes are using the most CPU time and RAM by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then clicking the Task Manager button in the resulting window. When Task Manager opens, click the "Processes" tab to view the list of running processes and the system resources they're using.
You can sort the list (highest to lowest) by CPU or Memory Usage by clicking on the corresponding headers in the list.


(I see that you have AOL installed, and that package can really put a load on a system, especially the latest version. Your HiajckThis log shows that no less than 9 different components of AOL were running when you ran your scan, and I'll bet a few of those will be at the top of your CPU/RAM usage in Task Manager.)
