Hello

I have tried addressing this problem before and now it seems worse :(

I am running windows xp sp2
amd 800 with 1 gig ram and a 6600 saphire graphics card a dv/cd rom and a 80 gig WD harddrive.

I have downloaded lavasoft and avg

the computer is hanging a lot and it is not specific to a program or start up or anything as far as i can tell

i would like to have a plan of action to deal with this problem what steps ought I too take and what order.

Oh yes sometimes on startup the computer seems to miss the dv/cd rom I have replaced the cable and it still seems to sometimes find and lose the drive

Hi zonkvert, NO NOT reinstall anything as yet.
Your log looks extremely short. Have you gone into 'msconfig' and unchecked everything ?
If so, go in again and recheck everything and post another HJT log.

start with reinstalling os. Most likely a virus or bad software

Your highjackthis log is not complete. Maybe you should do another one and copy and paste the whole log into the security part of this forum. Someone there that deals with the highjackthis will read it and help you.

I know nothing about formatting. You may have to start a new thread putting your problem with formatting in the subject line and hopefully someone will be able to help you. This is a totally different problem than you stated in this thread so it may be over looked here.
