    Hello, My computers been running slowly for a bit now. and more curious, it will crash at random intervals claiming something of a memory dump. I'm not sure what was going on as I believe lately there was a new problem that overshadowed an older one.

    I've checked through all your steps to check for malware, and various other sites on cleaning stuff and followed all their instructions to a T. I've cleaned my hard drive and defragmented my computer using "Smart Defrag" and "CCleaner" I've just removed a vundo virus (which i believe to be causing the newer problems) with "malwarebytes' anti-malware" and I am currently running "malwarebytes' anti-malware" and "spybot - search and destroy" Now I'll report any crashes and funny business from this point on.

    To go into a little more detail, before I had roomates using my computer :)mad:) I still had problems with my computer crashing. sometimes it wouldn't give me a problem for a few days. then sometimes it wouldnt be albe to fully load to windows before crashing.
    I could usually slow the crashing (sometimes for long periods of time) by shutting down a svchost.exe process (usually running 15,000kb plus) or by removing any anti-virus programs I was using. along with cutting down on memory using programs.

    I also have a second hard drive that when I try and connect it (in any hardware or bios configuration i've tried) windows will not load. this was a problem a long time ago, and I've currently decided to just not connect my second HD untill I've got everything else fixed.

    I havent experianced any crashes for the last several hours, and haven't had any popups ect. However I am worried that the crashes may come back. So I was wondering if there was an underlying problem, or if everything looks good as far as my hijackthis log.

    I am also doing a current anti-malware scan log which I will post within the next two hours.
