    I wonder if someone could have a look at my HJT log please

    Sony Vaio VGN-FW31M
    4GB memory
    500G hard drive - 350GB free

    32bit Vista Home premium

    The laptop has been running very slow recently and also IE has been freezing
    I have recently updated with Vista service pack two and various windows update

    I carried out a system recovery to before the service pack (I think ) restore seems to only go back 10 points, unlike XP
    And it said Instal service pack2 - so not sure if that means before or after the install..
    Although HJT seems to indicate SP1 - so maybe that did restore to before the service pack2

    I would get rid of GoogleToolbar and disable Windows Sidebar.

    I would not advise having these:
    O15 - Trusted Zone: www.corel.com
    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.corel.com
    O15 - Trusted Zone: www.intervideo.com
    O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.intervideo.com

    in your Trusted Zone. Trusted Zone allows download and installation without your consent or notification. Trusted Zones should be reserved to sites you really trust. ;)


    I don't see any signs of malware.


    Optimize Windows Vista for better performance

    Thanks for that - The machine has been running a lot better since I restored to before service pack2

    I will remove google toolbar etc

    The trusted zone for corel - is in order to get an AACS Update for Intervideo WinDVD for Blue Ray player - part of the sony Vaio recommendations to renew the AACS License for another 18mths to play HD movies

    Thanks for the decode and no mailware all clear..

    must have been SP2 ... been working fine this evening (in UK)
