    You really need to do 2 things. One is clean out startup or go "Run,msconfig,startup,ok" and tell us what is checked there and we will tell you what to remove.
    The other is change out the ram as a notebook these days with XP seriously needs at least a gb of memory.

    I would not be running MacAfee and Avg antivirus, that alone could be the issue.

    Uninstall McAfee VirusScan and upgrade Grisoft AVG 7 to version 8.

    You can download it from here.

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

    Add at least another 256 MB or RAM.

    Your laptop supports a maximum of 1024 MB of PC-2700 RAM, which means you can install a 512 MB module in each slot.

    You can buy RAM modules from here. I've purchase RAM modules from this site for years.

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

    Your computer has overkill with toolbars.

    They take up too much vertical viewing space, they increase the graphic and memory load, and some of them contain spyware and are problematic.

    You can either bring your laptop and RAM modules to a computer store and have a technician install them in a few minutes for a small fee - or - you can do it yourself at home.

    If you go to the website for your particular model, it should have a link that instructs you with text and with photos how to install them.

    Make sure to remove the battery and make sure the laptop isn't plugged into electrical power before you open the RAM compartment.

    You need to be careful about static electricity when handling the RAM modules and putting your hands inside the case. Standing on a bare floor instead of carpeting reduces the risk. Also, touch something metallic before you go inside the case so you can discharge any static electricity that might be present.

    Handle the RAM modules by their sides and not by the copper contacts that go into the slots.

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

    Open Internet Explorer, then click View - Toolbars.

    A menu will appear and will have a checkmark next to each toolbar that your computer has installed and being used.

    Click each toolbar to remove its checkmark. As you do each one, you'll see it disappear from the Internet Explorer window.

    If you go into Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and browse through the list of programs, you'll likely see some of them listed and can uninstall them from there.

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

    I use the Windows XP built-in firewall and the built-in firewall in my Linksys router. I don't use a third-party firewall.

    The free version of ZoneAlarm is very popular. You just have to get used to the frequent warning pop-ups that occur with it.

    Congratulations on getting the new RAM installed and getting it increased from 256 MB to 1024 MB. It'll make a noticable difference in the overall performance (y)

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

    If you've installed a third-party firewall, turn off the built-in XP firewall.

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

    Can you post a new HijackThis log here?

    Thanks for the new HijackThis log.

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

    The O4 startup list looks real good now. AVG8_TRAY, Outpost Firewall, and ctfmon.exe are 3 startup entries that will always run in the background.

    You can leave SpybotSD TeaTimer running in the background, as long as it doesn't cause a problem. If it does or you get an error message from it, uncheck and disable it.
