Recently my computer became VERY slow, and I have no idea why -- I haven't looked at any porn. Although I have downloaded some music through bittorrent.

I ran a spybot, ad-aware, and norton antivirus scan before posting this.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Your log is clean, but if you don't have at least a half-Gig of RAm I can see that all those autostart entries [the O4's..] would bog your sys.
Let's look at a couple....
igfxtray.exe - this puts an icon in your sys tray and monitors it by hanging about in RAM; it gives you tray access to changing some Intel integrated graphics driver properties. Now how often do you do that?
hkcmd.exe - this gives you special hotkey access to the same thing as the above! Did you ever use those hotkeys?
HDAudPropShortcut.exe - you should leave this one; apart from giving you a few extra controls in the control panel sounds window it "may" also improve the sound chip output quality.
SOUNDMAN.EXE - puts a Realtek icon in your sys tray to give you quick access to sound diagnostics. You use it a lot, right?
ALCWZRD.EXE - detects new sound devices [I'm not talking new speakers plugged in the rear panel jacks here...] and starts an install wizard for drivers... Yeah.
ALCMTR.EXE - monitors your soundcard. But you've got ears, right? You'd know if it stopped...?
And on it goes. Look, you check all those other things too and see which ones you really wish to have running. Using HT to fix those entries just stops them starting - the processes themselves are still there and can be started manually, or turned back to autostart again. Even java updates can be done manually - I check for them once monthly when windows updates arrive. Simple, and that is 2+MB back in your RAM.
I would definitely keep these:
[NeroFilterCheck][gcasServ][ccApp][osCheck]

And if I did not use Adobe Reader professionally I'd ditch it and get Foxit. As good or better, faster, and smaller. 5MB installed on your drive as against 105MB on drive.
These are my opinions only; you or others may view things differently.
