Please review my Hijackthis log

  1. I've started having two problems:
    1) IE requires http:// to be entered in all URLs in the address bar. For instance, typing http://www.google.com works fine. But typing www.google.com causes the browser to hang. After about five minutes, it finally resolves to the URL.
    2) When opening Windows Explorer or My Computer, the flashlight appears and it takes several minutes for my drives/directories to appear. This same thing happens if I'm in an application and click 'Save' or 'Open'. If I open the dropdown in these dialogues, it takes several minutes for the directories to appear.

    When I log off and log back on as a different user, everything is fine.

    I've ran every known spyware scanner on the planet and repaired IE and nothing seems to work. Any help is greatly appreciated.
