    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is clean.

    The reason your system is so slow, is because you`re running two antivirus and firewall programmes.

    Uninstall that Symantec/Norton crap as per the instructions in this post HERE.

    Once you`ve done that, you`ll probably find your system is much faster.

    Post a fresh HJT log as per these instructions after you`ve finished.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Here's the 2nd HJT. It seems to be running better already, but I'm open to other suggestions to streamline XP.

    Your HJT log is clean as a whistle.

    In order to speed things up a little more do the following.

    Trun off the AVG Antispyware resident shield, see HERE for instructions.

    Run HJT and have it fix the following.

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [swg] C:\Program Files\Google\GoogleToolbarNotifier\1.2.1128.5462\GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: Acrobat Assistant.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 4.0\Distillr\AcroTray.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: Adobe Reader Speed Launch.lnk = C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\reader_sl.exe

    O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

    O4 - Global Startup: WinZip Quick Pick.lnk = C:\Program Files\WinZip\WZQKPICK.EXE

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_11\bin\ssv.dll

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Sun Java Console - {08B0E5C0-4FCB-11CF-AAA5-00401C608501} - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_11\bin\ssv.dll

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {e2e2dd38-d088-4134-82b7-f2ba38496583} - %windir%\Network Diagnostic\xpnetdiag.exe (file missing)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: @xpsp3res.dll,-20001 - {e2e2dd38-d088-4134-82b7-f2ba38496583} - %windir%\Network Diagnostic\xpnetdiag.exe (file missing)

    O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Windows Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

    O11 - Options group: [INTERNATIONAL] International*

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT and reboot your system.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    Go and read this thread HERE, for suggestion on how to speed up your system.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
