Hya folks,

My PC (Win ME, 64mb RAM, can't remember CPU) more often than not freezes immediately after the desktop icons appear. Usually a reboot and scandisk get it going again. I've run Adaware & Spybot & it seems to have improved but wondered if you wonderful folk :D could check out my Hijack Log & see what else I can discard.
