Computer being slow

  1. Hey all,
    My computer has been running pretty slow recently. Have done spyware and virus scans and nothing has come up.
    I've attached a hijack this log.
    Would appreciate if anyone could take a quick look and tell me if anything is fishy there.

    Thank you very much.

    Two things to check:
    1. What do you have on Startup?You only need the antivirus AVG, firewall Comodo, touchpad if laptop and network process is on network- I think AVG has the spyware on startup also but nothing else. This is a frequent cause of 'slow computer' as everything that starts up runs in the background.

    2. Confirm you have all these connections going:
    The IP is Bell Canada BELLGLOBAL
    The IP is Sympatico File Storage & Sharing

    From Bleeping computer, here is a description of the 017 entries:
    I recommend you also run SupreAntispyware. Chances are high you have an assortment of Tracking Cookies;(games)

    Hey Bobbye,

    Thank you for the response.

    I think i understand what you're saying about the 017 entries but not completely.
    My internet provider is Bell how exactly do i check if those 017 entries are good/ or that I have these connections going.

    Thanks a lot
