Tech Stocking Stuffers: 18 awesome gifts under $50

XP slow boot, slow progam loading, slow internet. PLS help

  1. The other day despite my better judgment I downloaded a keygen I know should not have and it went ahead and infected my computer with a virus (or 2, or 50).
    I've run pretty much everything I can, followed a malware disinfection guide from and am now turning to you guys for help.

    I believe I've removed most of the problem virus'/malware/spyware. However it's left my system a little sluggish. Meaning, instead of a 1 minute windows boot its about 3. Programs take closer to 20-30 seconds instead of 2-5 seconds and web page loading is ridiculously slow, meaning more than a minute.

    I am running:
    XP pro sp2
    P4 prescott 2.6Ghz
    2 gb Ultra PC6400 DDR
    Asus P4P800 se mobo
    Western Digital 80 gb 7200rpm
    G-Force FX6600

    I have ran Hijackthis and attached the log.

    P.S. Programs and web pages seem to run at regular speed once they have loaded. - even the attachment window is took a while

    sorry to identify all of this will take a while. I would let rootkit do its job. it does usually not destroy things which do no harm.
