Hey there everybody, great site, looks like you help alot of people out. I'm hoping that someone might be able to do the same for me. This is my girlfriends computer, and I'm getting yelled at to try and make it work better. The computer is about 2 yrs old, Dell Dimension C521 running windows XP. We have RoadRunner service from Time Warner, and we also are running a wireless network since there was no way to wire it to the upstairs. I've noticed some significant slow down, and some other wierd things lately. Specifically, the network seems to stop working intermitantly. If I right click on the wireless network tray icon, and do a "repair", the network works fine and pages load quickly (for a short time anyways). My prefferred network (my wireless RoadRunner network- known as "f8ff") is set to be the top of the preffered networks. However, upon restarting sometimes the computer tries to hook me up through an unknown linksys network. I also just noticed that the unknown linksys network mysteriously reaperared even after I removed it from my preffered wireless networks (thinking that by eliminating it as an option it would no longer try and select that network). I have also thought that (begining recently) sometime I click on something, whether its a link, or a file or picture to open, and I'll be waiting for it to open, and then I'll have to click it again to get it to open (whereas these items usually opened with one click). I have tried the security tango, but I still fear something is wrong. I have updated, run in safe mode, updated again and ran again the following programs: cwshredder, stinger, AVG Free 8.0, Ad-Aware, & Spybot S&D. I just recently downloaded Hijack this and will post my log here. If there are any programs that arent necessarily malicious, but a drain on my system, please let me know that too! Please, if anyone has any advice, or if you need anymore information to help me diagnose this problem, please contact me. Save me from my vicious girlfriend! Thank you in advance!
