  1. My computer's been running a bit on the slow side, for about the past 3 months. Can any of you help? I'm not very goof with computers, but a friend of mine told me that he uses "Hijack This" and he likes it a lot. I attached the logfile as a text document, and would greatly appreciate anyone's help. Please email me if you come across a solution. Thanks very much!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    However, it appears you`re running AVG free and McAfee antivirus programmes. This will slow your system down and can cause serious conflicts. I suggest you uninstall McAfee, then install one of the free firewall programmes below.

    Zonealarm or Kerio free firewall programmes.

    Once you`ve done that, go and read this thread HERE. It will show you how you can speed up your system.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
