    Well, you have 2 firewalls (Zone Alarm & McAfee) running, you should only have one running. You have 2 virus scans (AVG & McAfee) running, you should only have one running. Either keep McAfee or AVG & Zone Alarm.

    You can have several Spyware utilites running, but it's probably overkill. You don't really need both Windows Defender and ewido. AOL Active Security Monitor is also probably overkill.

    But the good news is it looks like your HJT log is clean, but someone with more expertise with HJT will let you know.

    1 Av and 1 firewall at a time...and yes the competition from 2 of each, will slow you to a crawl. Macafee is capable of doing that without help!
