    Your HJT log is clean.

    However, I`d like you to go and follow the instructions in this thread HERE.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs, after doing the above.

    If your system turns out to be clean, we`ll have to look at other possible causes for your systems slowdown.

    Regards Howard :)

    I dont see any obvious problems in that log.

    I do see that you have spybot search and destroy installed.
    So before doing anything else I would suggest you run that program, get the updates for it then run a scan - just to see if it finds anything.

    Then I would also defrag your c drive.

    then report back here.

    Thank you both for the reply. And you were both right. I did run Spybot and got rid some "staff" it found, I also defrag and I'm back on business now. My pc runs as fast as before. Thank you again guys. I hate spyware. Spybot is good after all.
