  1. I've reformatted my xp a month ago with the restore discs which I ordered from hp.com, it didn't had any problems until recently it became really slow, especially when I try to connect to the internet, it took about a minute to fully load the page. I didn't install any anti-virus software or anti-spyware software just until yesterday. I think my computer is possibly infected, I've posed the HighJackThis log. Thank you

    Please read this thread If your system is infected, read this before deciding whether to Clean or Format.

    If you decide to clean your system, follow these instructions Virus/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and post fresh HJT, Combofix, and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments to a new reply in this thread as well as the result of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    I've posed the requested logs, Panda Anti-rootkit found nothing.

    I can't see anything bad in your HJT log and AVG AS cleaned all the things that it found.

    momok usually comes on and offline throughout the day, if you wanted him to take a look at this thread, the best thing to do would be to PM him :)
