I've performed the steps described in the "Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions" thread, but I've only been able to perform them in safe mode with networking. These steps did discover and clean many malware infections, but the PC still runs very slowly when booted normally. I am currently running the online scanner this forum specifies (booted in normal mode this time), but it has been running since late last night and still is not completed. All operations I am trying to perform when the PC is in normal mode take an excruciatingly long time. I did rename the hijackthis executable to "crusty" and ran it in normal mode which I have included as an attachment. What do you suggest I do at this time? Thanks very much for your help.
