    Now that i removed most of the malware my computer had in the past 2 weeks or so, another problem emerged, a slow computer. The computer was much faster before i downloaded these hoards of anti-malware programs such as SuperAntiSpyware, WinPFind3u, Avenger, HostsXpert, CCLeaner, and HiJackThis (in addition to Spybot S & D and AdAware which i originally had). I Once measured the time it takes for the computer to restart and here is the "report" of that:

    To log off my account 2.5 minutes
    To log into account 1 min
    Total process (from logging off to ready for use) 4.5 min

    To me that's a lot of time to wait just to reboot. Now I am not sure, should i delete these programs?

    The first thing i see people do is post a HiJackThis log and here it is:

    I'm glad you're back.
    We wanted to get a sample of a file of yours.

    Please go here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/submit-malware.php?channel=3
    The sample needed is C:\Program Files\pasystem\pasystem.exe
    It may be an adware variant.

    As a side note, you can remove SuperAntiSpyware, WinPFind3u, Avenger, HostsXpert
