  1. hey guys,
    my computer is running really, really slow. to the point that it is difficult to do anything. furthermore, i downloaded a movie that won't delete because 'it is being used by another program,' and i think it may have something to do with this. attached is my hijack this report. also, i'd like to get rid of anything that i really don't need. thanks in advance.

    Looks clean.

    thank you so much...

    thank you so much... but i am new to this and still have some questions. what is indexing and how do i turn it off? also, i'm using shareaza. i've read it is free of malware; is it alright to keep it running? i attached my new hijack this log, just to double check. thanks again.

    In the Run box type services.msc
    On the right hand side go down to Indexing Service
    Right click Properties
    Click the Stop button
    and change the 'Startup type' to Disabled.

    I don't shareza and so will leave others to comment.

    Your version of Hijackthis is almost an antique!

    Get the latest (v1.99.1) and give us the complete log!

    ahh... i see...

    hey guys,
    sorry about that. i haven't had any serious problems with this computer in a while, thus i hadn't downloaded the new hijack this. anyway, here is my log, and thanks in advance, again.

    The only (cosmetic) change required is 'fixing' this with HJT:
    O23 - Service: CWShredder Service - Unknown owner - C:\Documents and Settings\shreyas\Desktop\CWShredder.exe (file missing)

    Your PCs sluggishness is due to (bet you guessed it already) the crappy bloatware from Norton/Symantec. They alone account for at least 50% of your system resources.
    Dump it, and get some free, light-weight but very powerful, stuff:
    AVG from http://free.grisoft.com
    Sygate from http://soho.sygate.com
