Hi Have been trying to help my friend sort his pc out - it has been running slow for months and lately refuses to launch applications constantly stating virtual memory is low. Having looked at it it appears that something is caning the processor but task manager won't open. His anti-virus was woefully out of date so I managed to install and run Avast, ASquare, Adware, Spybot and a few others which cleared a ton of trojans/viruses and assorted rubbish! Things still running slow though and task manager will not open still. Here is the HijackThis Log - hopefully one of you kind and much cleverer people can help!!!!
