PC running dead slow but scans clean?


Recommended Posts

Hi Malware Heroes

You have helped me once before and I now have a pretty neighbour in trouble. Her PC is running dead slow from boot onwards (e.g. 5 minutes to get XP signon screen to display). Also, the performance degredation is such that the audio is distorted and elongated. I have run the latest malwarebytes anti-malware version in both quick and full modes. I have fully scanned with AVG anti-virus also. Both scans clean. I enclose a Hijackthis log and would be grateful if someone could cast a suspicious and competent eye over it before I make it worse. Many thanks for your help....
