    Ditto! Submit the entire HijackThis log.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    There are too many programs auto-loading and running in the background.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Your computer is now loaded with several outdated and/or useless programs because of the system recovery that you did.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Is the Compaq Presario SR1000Z in your computer specs icon the same computer that we're dealing with here?

    Right-click MY COMPUTER, then click Properties to open the system properties window.

    How much RAM is listed at the bottom?

    According to the hardware specs site for that desktop, it originally came with 512 MB of RAM.

    According to the CRUCIAL site and the MEMORYTEN site, that desktop supports up to 2048 of RAM.

    It uses DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 modules.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Let's see what's currently installed in that desktop.

    Start HijackThis, but don't run a scan.

    Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click on the "Save List" button.

    Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere. It'll then open in Notepad.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

    Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03 needs to be uninstalled and replaced with Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.20.

    Adobe Reader 6.0.1 (and the 6.0.2 update) needs to be uninstalled and replaced with Adobe Reader 9.3.

    Advanced Registry Optimizer needs to be uninstalled, period. Avoid registry cleaner/optimizer/booster/tuneup programs like the plague, no matter what they claim they can do. Using them will result in broken programs and damage to the operating system. And they do nothing to improve speed or performance.

    There are also a number of outdated and unneeded programs that you can uninstall or update or replace.

    Make use of this site to trim down the startup list in Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab). Over half of that list can be unchecked and prevented from auto-loading and running in the background. The smaller you keep the startup load, the better and faster your computer will run.

    I don't care what a registry cleaner/optimizer/booster/tuneup program tells you it can do. They're a waste of money and do nothing for speed or performance and will break programs and damage the operating system.
