This is my first attempt at using one of these forums to ask for help myself ... I've only checked them out before to find people with similar problems. I'm not even sure if this is a malware problem, but I just know that the computer seems to stall alot (with CPU jumping from the 40's to as high as the 90's - although a lot of this is "idle process" which apparently is a good thing anyway?) and takes FOREVER to start up. I've been trying to go through the startup stuff and disable what I didn't need, but that has been a long process. I'm about halfway through the windows stuff, and then I plan to get rid of all the extra HP things I don't need (I have a HP Pavilion dv6736nr laptop with 2GB DDR2 SDRAM and 250 GB Hard drive), which seems to be a lot. Oh, and for the second time, the computer totally froze and a static type picture overtook the whole screen, the only option I had was to physically hold the power button to get it to cut off and restart. I currently use ESET Smart Security Firewall and Anti-virus, as well as having AVG and Avaste for backup, really only using them to scan individual downloaded files, etc. and keeping them "manual" in startup. I also have Ad-aware and PC Tools Spyware Doctor ( which is the one I generally use). I'm not sure what else you might need, if I missed something please let me know, and thanks in advance for all your help ... I know I'm lost. Below is my HJT log. Oh, and ps, I just bought this laptop less than a month ago.
