I'm trying to help out a friend who is less computer literate than myself. Her Windows XP computer is horrendously slow. (Literally a 20-30 minute boot-up!) Spy-bot search and destroy and Spyware Blaster were little / no help, AVG found nothing. Ad-Aware finds 61 critical objects, then just seems to stop. I let it run overnight, and there was no change. Obviously I can't remove those objects if the program won't complete. I was hoping someone knowledgable could look at the attached Hijack This log and advise me whether this is or is not a spyware / malware problem. I saved this log with a .txt file extension. (My understanding of your instructions.) If I should do otherwise, please say so, I'm happy to oblige those neighborly enough to help me.
