computer slow on some webpages

June 17, 2009 at 12:22:45
Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 1.8 GHz / 766 MB
It seems like my computer is running slower than my connection speed lately. I recently used ccleaner and yahoo antispyware and super antispyware and avg 8 and i'm not finding any spyware or viruses. My virtual memory is constantly requesting more memory. my pf usage commonly is over 1 gig but sometimes 700 MB. My cpu usage often peaks and the computer freezes. Below is my hijack this file if that helps.

I don't know whats causing the slow down. usually i have to close out all iexplorer.exe files (2 or 3 of them using over 100,000 k of memory) and scvhost.exe that seems to be a duplicate that are 100 k or less. any help would be greatly apreciated.

You are going to be admonished for posting a HijackThis log. There is a "rule" around here about doing that.

But now that it's done, can you explain why you feel the need for SIXTEEN Browser Helper Objects (BHO's) plus other toolbars?
As a first step, try disabling ALL of them, then re-instate ONLY the ones you feel are useful/necessary to your needs.

At a minimum, get rid of "mywebsearch"!!

Why do you have multiple instances of IE8 open?

And please, clean up what gets loaded when booting your PC. A lot of what I see is really un-necessary.

Posting a HJT log without being asked will result in your post being deleted.
