yes sir, did it just fine:)

Now, how about those questions?

1. When did you notice the slowing problem?
2. Do you clear out temp files on a regular basis?
3. Have you defragmented your computer lately?
4. I don't see a virus scanner installed on your machine. Would you like the address of some free ones?


How is the computer running now?

Edit: oops, didn't see your post after the hjt log.

Yes, AVG is a virus scanner, but I don't see it installed. I see lots of scanners, including Anonymizer, TrojanHunter and PestPatrol.

Swanny2, I just don't see that much going on with your machine meaning any type of malware/worms etc.

There is one line we might as well fix with HJT.
Open HJT, scan and put a check/tick next to this line:
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C8B2A36-3DB1-42A4-A3CB-D426709BBFEB} - (no file)
With nothing open except HJT, click on the Fix Checked button. Close HJT.

My next best guess is that you have a hardware problem. I can give you a couple of links to try.
http://pcpitstop.ibforums.com which specializes in hardware issues.
http://www.computertrouble.co.uk P3 knows this site, and can guide you there and help you get registered.

Let me give you my Good to Go! speech, since it appears you don't have malware on the computer.

Follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:
Make your Internet Explorer more secure -
This can be done by following these simple instructions:

*Open Internet Explorer and click on the Tools menu and then click on Internet Options.
*Click on Security
*Click the Internet icon
*Click on Custom Level
*Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
*Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
*Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
*Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
*Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
*Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
*Change the Allow paste operations via script to Disable
*Click on OK
*Save (if asked).
*Click on Apply button
*Click on OK
*Close Internet Options

Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

Update all scanning programs regularly -

Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.

I hope you can get your puter up and smiling again.

okey dokey You get to work and I get to hmm work, too 8)

One question for you, Swanny2
Do you have the disk that is used to reinstall Windows ME? This is just for my own information, I don't want you to do that (not yet, anyway)

Let's do an online scan: Trend Housecalls Virus Scan Let it fix/clean/delete all that is found. If something can't be found, then write down the name and where it is located as an example: xyz.exe location C:\Windows\System\

Good luck and I'll be waiting for your reply :)
