HJT log assistance required

  1. Hi, i'm back with more problems for my computer.
    I seem to lag whenever i'm using the computer.
    I've uploaded my HJT log.
    Everytime i start-up the computer, the blue screen appears and it tries to scan.
    But it always gets stuck at the second part with 0%.
    I've waited for 30+ minutes but it doesn't work.
    And today, my ZoneAlarm Firewall got screwed.
    All the programs it had "saved" were lost and i had to go and add them back.
    And sometimes, the Internet Explorer hangs or closes by itself.
    Anyone can help me?
    And i can't find my reformat link/button/whatever.

    Sounds like you might be better off just backing up important data and re-installing XP.

    See this sticky for information on malware prevention and maintenance.

    this should be the CHKDSK /F scan and if it stalls, you're in real trouble --
    the HD has major problems.

    get a bootCD, boot from it, get a command prompt and run CHKDSK /F from there.

    if this ever completes, your next option is to boot into Safe Mode and run
    SFC /SCANNOW

    Great advice, for future reference - just wanted to throw in that it is not recommended to install Hijackthis to your desktop, it should be in its own folder to create backups if fixes are recommended.

    I didn't get my Windows XP installation CD O_O
    It IS the CHKDSK scan.
    I have to cancel it everytime i run the computer.
    Anything else i might be able to do other than using the CD?

    and I guess if you let it run it doesn't complete ...

    Will it affect my computer's performance?

    If CHKDSK won't complete you could be in for an HDD failure. Attempt what Jobeard said and get back to us:
