HijackThis log file

Unread postby amcink » September 3rd, 2009, 1:54 am


My problem manifests as sharp spikes in web traffic up to 2mbps down and up to 50kbps up. I've also noticed that if I leave my cursor anywhere in Firefox for perhaps a second, a small square icon comes up below the cursor and disappears when I move the mouse.

Log file follows. Any help would be very much appreciated.
