1. I have a Compaq Presario DeskTop. I am running Windows XP-with service Pack 2. Since about 2 weeks the computer is running very slow. It freezes when I open more than 2 windows in internet explorer. The internet is extremely slow. I see that some windows are trying to pop up now and then. Such as SystemErrorFixer, WinFixer Etc. I am also getting warning from windows defender about Trojan:win32/Conhook.D, Adware:win32/ZenoSearch. The intenet explorer is also not running as it should.

2. When I turn the system on the confuguration utility box appears with message that I am using a selective start.

3. When I look at processes running in Task Manager I see iexplorer running even I haven't started it. I also see several duplications of various processes running. Such as follows:

ati2evxx.exe system
ati2evxx.exe Compaq_Owner
lsass.exe system
lsass.exe Compaq_Owner
rundll32.exe Compaq_Owner
rundll32.exe Compaq_Owner
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe Network Service
svchost.exe system
svchost.exe Network Service
svchost.exe Local Service

4. In the msconfig startup I see the following processes running:

Windows defender
Bell sympatico Index Cleaner
Sympatico security manager
Freedom needs reboot Security Manager
Skype
Yahoo Pager

I am aware of the above legit programs, but not the following programs:

ctfmon.exe
PostSetupCheck rundll32.exe
LSA ShellU lsass.exe

5. I am pasting the log of Hijackthis:
