    This is a friend's computer (XP SP2, Pentium 1.6 GHz, 256 MB RAM). The computer was extremely slow, and I have done the following:
    - Ran adaware and spybot, found 635 (yes, 635) problem files or entries;
    - Very little space on C drive; deleted unnecessary files, and moved some to CD to get about 8 GB free space (the total HD is about 20 GB, split into 16 GB drive C and 4 GB drive D);
    - Ran cccleaner, and fixed entries and issues;
    - deleted e-mule (hope it has been deleted)

    The computer is noticeably faster, but still too slow. Grateful for any help in removing unwarranted entries. Hijack log included. Many thanks.

    Further to the above, there is a WINNT folder on drive C, with 5602 files and 108 folders, with size on disk of 392 MB and size of 593 MB. This is in addition to the Windows folder which contains 17576 files in 1192 folders (2.65 GB size on disk, 3.24 GB size). Is the WinNT folder needed? On the two computers that I have, I do not have the WINNT folder.

    Many thanks.

    Bump. Grateful if some one would look at the Hijack this log, and tell me what, if anything, needs to be removed. Many thanks.
