You might want to run Microsoft Security Essentials and see if you have some sort of virus: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Otherwise, you can try to do a system restore from a point before you started having these issues and see if that will help quell your problems.

Please click HERE to download and install HijackThis.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything

You have quite a lot of security on that computer, and overkilling it.

Avira, Avast, Spybot, Comodo...

You'll need to keep only ONE antivirus. I recommend keeping Avira and getting rid of the rest.

You can download the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware as extra protection and run a scan once in a while.

I had the pro-trial version of avast and couldn't figure out how to kill it after it ran out, I looked in add or remove programs but couldn't find it there. I feel like there is some obvious way that I am missing.
Thanks for the help

Very nice, thanks again for the help,
one last question,
in your opinion is it worth it to buy
the avira software or just use the free version?

Unfortunately it has frozen two more times since I deleted avast and comodo, this last time when it froze the speakers made a loud buzzing sound that didn't stop until I held the power button and turned it off manually.

Well, there's still some work to do. You have a bloated Startup directory. We'll need to trim it down a bit.
