    Hey guys, long time no talk!
    I was having a couple of problems with my computer, but I read through http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?threadid=157605& and ran the Mcafee Virus Scan, getting rid of a bunch of junk, and the Spybot S & D program, getting rid of even more junk. I rebooted my computer and most of the problems seem to be gone, but I figured I should post my HJT log and you could tell me what happens to be extranneous and deletable. I happen to have put a lot of junk on my computer over the years, and am hoping to start off with a clean OS and only a few of my old files, just to purge my computer. I'm going to do that by copying whatever I want to keep over to our Asterisk server/RAID array type apparatus and reformatting my HD. I currently am running WIN98se on one partition and RedHat linux on another, and I was wondering what OS I should update to (as far as windows goes... I hear it's getting more stable, and I never got into Linux as much as I was planning to.) I also seem to have waay to much stuff in my ctrl+alt+delete menu, and stuff runs mighty slowly. Any helping words from you fellows would be appreciated, and I hope you have fun with my HTJ log ;-)

    Thanks much,
    Peace,
    The Alker has spoken.
