    Hi all,
    My system has been running like an old racehorse that needs to be put down. Can anyone give me a hand?
    I'll post a hijack this log to get things started.
    Thank you!

    Rescan with Hijack This.
    Close all browser windows except Hijack This.
    Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked".

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

    O20 - AppInit_DLLs: {DLL_Str}


    Close Hijack This and reboot.
    Then post a new log.

    Overall, it looks okay.

    Your Avast anti-virus is outdated. It is now version 5. I'd recommend you getting the latest version.

    How much RAM does the system have?
    We could trim down some of the programs running at Startup.
