Have been trying to figure out why my PC is running slowly. Have been looking at the task manager to see what's running. I have been able to get rid of some things but noticed that different applications "pop up" during my session. Two of the most recent, XopQcTGe.exe and Nbgl.exe, are running, but when I search my C drive for these files the search comes back with no files found.
What could be the reason for this and how can I get rid of these applications?

Most likely spyware.

From the link below download Adaware and Spyware. Once download, update each program and do a full scan with both apps. Fix all problems they find. Then download HijackThis from the same site and create a log and post it here.

Thank you Triple6 for your help. Ad-Aware located and quarantined over 200 applications! I'd hoped that was my solution, but my operating system is still working slowly and ads are still popping up all over my browsling. Its like something has taken over my memory and my browser. Have run all system tools and spybot program as well. Hope the hijack log shows something. I'm open to any other suggestions and really appreciate your help.

Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {65C8C1F5-230E-4DC9-9A0D-F3159A5E7778} - C:\Program Files\POP\pop205.dll

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {80E81A0E-9741-4FBC-8EE3-3B78C04ADA1D} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: &POP - {645FD3BC-C314-4F7A-9D2E-64D62A0FDD78} - C:\Program Files\POP\pop205.dll

I don't know what the following 'tmne.exe' does, it didn't google anything, so I'm not sure if it should be fixed.
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Aeor] C:\Documents and Settings\George L. Christman\Application Data\tmne.exe

Also, if you don't recognise the IP addresses as your ISP then the following entries can be fixed:
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{438D088E-30EA-4970-8075-ECF1F3CB8740}: NameServer = 12.102.244.2 204.127.129.2
O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\..\{438D088E-30EA-4970-8075-ECF1F3CB8740}: NameServer = 12.102.244.2 204.127.129.2

You should also check the following of Tony Klein's tutorials asking: So how did I get infected in the first place?

Hope this helps!

Yeah, you've definately got some sort of trojan..

C:\WINNT\System32\UaaL7.exe
C:\WINNT\System32\Sxzsb.exe

These should NOT be there.

Gentlemen, thank you. My browser is improved. I found two of the recommended entries to delete in hijack this log and checked them off. They are gone and so far there has been a reduction in the interference with my browser. I am attaching the current hijack this log for you to take another look if you will.
