    The basic problem is that the computer pauses (serious slowdown) for from a few seconds to a few minutes to, I guess, forever, forcing me to turn it off (with the power button) and then reboot. -- I have run chkdsk c: /f (on all drives, of course) - it deleted about 11 files on the F: drive (where temp files are located). -- Defragging is regularly done. -- Ccleaner is regularly run. -- Sysinternals Process Explorer doesn't show anything using 100% of the CPU. -- SOME times I can do a shutdown/reboot from the Start menu, but at times the slowdown is so bad that I just have to "pull the plug" (as noted above). Your help will be greatly appreciated and I know how to follow instructions to the letter. ~Jim~ Following is the highjackthis.log (version 2.0.2): ---------snip--------- Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 6:25:03 AM, on 9/28/2008 Platform: Windows XP SP3, v.3311 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16705) Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe E:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\aswUpdSv.exe C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE E:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashServ.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\00THotkey.exe C:\Program Files\Apoint2K\Apoint.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\TFNF5.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\TPWRTRAY.EXE C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TouchED\TouchED.Exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\ezSP_Px.exe C:\toshiba\ivp\ISM\pinger.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\WLTRAY.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskswitch.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\fast.exe E:\PROGRA~1\ALWILS~1\Avast4\ashDisp.exe C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TOSHIBA Controls\TFncKy.exe E:\Program Files\HighCriteria\TotalRecorder\TotRecSched.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\fpdisp4.exe C:\Program Files\Comodo\Css\cssurf.exe C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\Wireless Hotkey\TosHKCW.exe E:\Program Files\COMODO\Firewall\cfp.exe E:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_07\bin\jusched.exe E:\Program Files\IObit\IObit SmartDefrag\IObit SmartDefrag.exe C:\Program Files\VistaDriveIcon\DrvIcon.exe E:\Program Files\Presorium\Frontgate MX\frntgate.exe E:\Program Files\WinRoll\winroll.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exe E:\Program Files\puretext20_x86\PureText.exe C:\Program Files\VisualTaskTips\VisualTaskTips.exe E:\Program Files\Logitech\MouseWare\system\em_exec.exe C:\Program Files\Apoint2K\Apntex.exe E:\Program Files\olmtr\olmtr.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exe E:\Program Files\Launchy\Launchy.exe E:\Program Files\Infinite Mind LC\eyeQ\ARLaunch.exe E:\Program Files\COMODO\Firewall\cmdagent.exe C:\Program Files\Blaero Start Orb\Blaero Start Orb 2.0.exe C:\Program Files\Digital Timepiece\DigitalTimepiece.exe E:\Program Files\Sandboxie\SbieCtrl.exe C:\Program Files\WinFlip\WinFlip.exe E:\Program Files\CDBurnerXP\NMSAccessU.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\nvsvc32.exe E:\Program Files\Sandboxie\SbieSvc.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\tcpsvcs.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\wltrysvc.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\bcmwltry.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\Fast.exe E:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashMaiSv.exe E:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashWebSv.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuauclt.exe E:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe R1 -
