I followed the 8-step process

  1. I'm not 100% sure if there is a virus or something on my pc but recently things seem to be running slower than usual and I couldn't be sure about all the processes that were running.

    The scans revealed some infections but unsure as to whether there is anything serious lurking in the machine.

    Your advice and any assistance required would be of great help.

    Attached are the log files as requested.

    I think I disabled the Avast virus program and the ZoneAlarm firewall correctly, and I had them off for the remained of the process. If I did something wrong please let me know and I'll run the process again accordingly.

    Delete the Zone Alarm software and clean your system once more. With Windows XP, SP3 there is no need for the extra firewall. You are just bogging down your system
