    Hello,
    I was refered to you by spy warrior. I am requesting help please. My computer is a P11 windows 98 , 40gig ,128 meg and most of my drive space is free but my system resources change from around 78% - 55% for no reason . I use a microsoft browser and outlook express. It is slow, and keeps stalling/freezing. I am inundated with pop ups, something called search pal and it automatically brings up the search feature when I am in an open browser window. I also have trouble downloading large documents with a message that says time out. I have included a copy of Hijackthis . Can anyone help me please?? Kind regards -Les

    This is what I suggest you do first.

    Make sure you have the up-to-date versions of Spybot and Ad-aware. All are free and available below.

    Download Spybot, install and update. Then download Ad-aware, install, and update.

    Spybot:
    Go to Start > Programs >Spybot > Search & Destroy and choose Spybot S&D

    Close ALL windows except Spybot S&D
    Click the button to "Search for Updates" and download and install the Updates.
    Next click the button "Check for Problems"
    When Spybot is complete, it will be showing "RED" (RED) entries "BLACK" entries and "GREEN" (GREEN) entries in the window
    Put a check mark beside the RED (RED) entries ONLY.
    Choose "Fix Selected Problems" and allow Spybot to fix the RED (RED) entries.

    Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:
    Install the program and launch it.

    First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

    From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

    Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

    Now to scan just click the Next button.

    When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

    Before restart, Empty Recycle Bin.

    Restart your computer.

    Post a new HijackThis log.

    Hi charltonfarm

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    In addition to running Adaware and Spybot, you need to run CWShredder.


    Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

    When it is finished restart your computer.

    Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.
