Followed 8 Steps - PC still has a few problems

  1. Started having problems a few days ago.

    PC took longer than usual to boot. Browser (FIrefox intially and now IE) will work fine for about 20 mins, then begin to load back to the previous screen and not allow anything else to get through. You can see it trying to move to something else, but then it will "snap back." At that point, other applications are unable to run either.

    Ran the 8 steps last are the logs.

    Thank you in advance.

    You had one bad infestation, and they sometimes lurk in memory, then come back. You also have SpyBot and Adaware Junk.
    Remove (delete) both Spybot and Adaware.
    Then reboot to safe mode (depressing the F8 key repeatedly once per second.) then wait five minutes for the machine to stabilize in SAFE MODE, then run your spyware software and anativirus from there if they will run.
    If they will not run, reboot and run again in regular mode.
    If nothing is found, you might be oK
