  1. I bought this computer back in 2001 (was top of the line at the time), it's been great all that time until recently when I deleted a file on BitComet now everything has slowed down to a hault. I've tried a number of Anti-Virus software & spyware/adware fixes to no avail.

    Please have a look over the hijackthis report and see if you see everything. I'm a graphic designer but IT has never been my forte.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    btw, I have a P4 2.39 Ghz comp with Windows XP with SP2, 1 GB RAM.
