Hi all, i have a problem.. I connected a friend's iPOD to my laptop, that's when the problem started.. Computer started running VERY slow. Java doesn't run at all. Tried a virus scan (AVG Free) but it was also running very slow (usually takes 2 hours for complete scan, now i stopped it on 9 hours). Cannot open task manager (administrator has disabled Task Manager). Another friend tried to correct it, and now task manager opens, but for a second, and goes away immediately. is there a way to salvage my computer, or do i just delete and reinstall everything? i'm attaching a hijackthis log I did. cheers, oh, and a question: if this is a virus, what good is the avg antivirus i keep updaed on my computer?
