Problem and HJT log

  1. Not sure what's causing it, but suddenly my pc seems to be much slower than usual. Browser speeds of both IE and Firefox seem considerably slower also. The task manager indicates that iexplore.exe jumps from around 50% to 80% of cpu usage, but very little network utilization seems to be being used, even when only opening pages that are allready in the ie history.
