    I am having the following problems:
    -bootup much slower than usual
    -msconfig will open briefly (one second) then close on its own
    -defrag will freeze before I can select the drive to defrag
    -My Computer takes a long time to open (flashlight moving back and forth over a folder for several minutes)
    -IE takes several minutes to open (no problems with accessing web sites once IE opens)
    -have gotten a message a couple of times that there was a problem with IE and it would have to close

    This all started a few days ago after my daughter spent some time playing online games at disneychannel.com.

    I have tried the following:
    -in safe mode, ran spybot s&d, adaware, a2, avg (all were up to date and no problems were found)
    -error checking C drive revealed no problems
    -deleted cookies, history, temporary internet files
    -turned off system restore
    -ran online virus scan with Trend Micro's Housecall (no problems found)

    My system specs are:
    Asus a7n8x motherboard
    AMD 2500+ Barton core processor
    500 watt power supply
    PNY memory 1 GB
    PNY FX5200 AGP graphics card
    WD 120 GB HD on c drive
    WD 80 GB HD on e drive

    From all the research I've done via google, it seems that either I have a virus or the hard drive is going bad. Please take a look at the below Hijack This Log and let me know if you see any problems. Thanks.
