    Hi all,

    For some time now my computer has been getting slower. Hadn't even really realized it, it just sort of crept up. I'm on dial up, but it's way too slow even for that. I searched through the forums and found what could be answers but was too afraid to try them. The only thing new I have installed lately was the new AVG when it came out. I went to check the start up menu but realized I wasn't sure what should or should not be there. I'm not sure how some of the things that I did see on there got there. I run XP. Hopefully someone here can help me. Included is my Hijack log, I hope....Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1

    I can't see anything unusual. Here's a stab in the dark - There could be a conflict b/w AVG and something else running like Defender or Symantec. Did the problem start after upgrading AVG?

    running 2 virus programs is no good . And you have way to many programs starting when you boot up . I think I counted 25 ( 04 ) on your hijack and I only have 4 when I boot

    Thank you both for your replies. JuJu, I do believe it did start after upgrading AVG. Padutch, I did wonder if running AVG and Defender was too much. If Symantec is Norton I let it lapse years ago when it ran out.

    About the start up. I'm obviously confused about how those items get on Startup. I don't put them there, do they automatically go there? Which ones do I get rid of? Stupid questions I know but I hope ya'll can answer them. Many thanks Bastet

    Well, if they are legitimate services (not malware) then you can turn off a lot of that stuff with msconfig. Goto Start > Run then type msconfig and enter. When it comes up click Startup tab and uncheck unnecessary startup items. If you want to keep AVG then lose the norton and symantec stuff. The Sonic update manager could go, as well as the quicktime and realplayer. They may have to be diabled in their respective program settings because they will probably reactivate themselves otherwise. The one related to MS Money is probably useless, that can go. Cyberlink can go. Start with that and see if it helps. Basic rule of thumb - if it's not anti-virus, anti-malware, or hardware related, it's not necessary. Most of that crap is there for your "convenience", software manufacturers think that you need to have a their program start a second or two quicker or check for updates frequently.

    Thanks again JuJu. I will do that and let ya'll know what happens. Should I get rid of everything I don't use everyday (except of course antivirus' and necessary programs)? Why do they go to Startup? Should I keep AVG and get rid of Defender? Bastet

    You have Linkscanner enabled. Disable that and see if your response time improves?

    Also, as pointed out, running AVG on top of Symantec is a waste of time.

    Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    Click the Application category.

    Look For Recent Errors > Double Click on them > Another Windows Will open > On the Right Side use the Double Notepad icon to copy the error paste them here

    Since devil_himself hasn't replied, I can tell you that error is from Windows Defender. Personally, I would uninstall it. Do the other errors have MPSampleSubmission as source as well?

    I tried to get a sample of errors on here but again this is all I get. There are plenty more of the MSsample. And then some hangining applications, one of ieExplorer. I uninstalled Defender about 4 hours ago.

    On the Start up it might be easier if you could tell me what to keep. There's so much stuff and I don't know what half of it is. Many, many thanks for your time. Bastet

    So, you disabled some things in msconfig as well as uninstalled defender and nothing has been resolved? If you can post the most recent error events that might be more helpful. In MSCONFIG > startup tab you can uncheck everything for the time being. Nothing critical in there. You can always re-enable as needed. If there is anything in there you know you don't want and it is still installed, then uninstall them.

    A good registry cleaning would be useful but may not solve the problem. A program called Ccleaner is good for that. Use the registry cleaner module to scan and then fix invalid registry entries. It will prompt you to back up registry, do so.

    I wondered about the registry too. Will try Ccleaner? Is it free? Also forgot to mention ( :eek: ) that everytime I shut down a dialog box pops up and says: End Program-TeaTimer.exe and the usual end now or cancel.

    Will have to wait a bit to see how much has improved. Thanks Bastet

    If your not happy with the results and you are seeing new errors in event viewer, then the best thing to do, if possible, is a clean format and re-install after backing up any data you want to keep. If you do, only re-install one anti-virus and one anti-malware program.
