    Hi there.
    Had been having lots of problems with my cmputer after a serious malware infection awhile ago, especially with graphics intensivve apps like games , video editing movies etc. also experienced some internet explorer crashes. basically the screen will go crazy, with colors all over the place and the computer/may/may not get stuck. after reformat everything looks okay, but installed a game ( silent hunter 4) to test it out. ran fine for an hour but the problem came back.decided to use hijackthis to see if the malware is still ard....

    not sure if it could be a hardware problem, but I don't think so as this problem surfaced when the malware came in.

    some hardware info before I upload the log
    system: AMD duo core chipset with MSI mainboard. 2GB DDR2 kingston hyperX DDR2 RAM
    graphics card: ASUS Gforce 8600

    the log:
