    I'm often getting a problem when I have 3 or more windows open. Usually, one will freeze up, causing me to ctrl-alt-del to close that window, which closes them all. I usually have to do a restart after this because it's so slow. I'm also running slower than I think I should be, since I'm on a cabel modem. My Hijack log is.......

    Any thoughts?

    And also, in C\Windows\Temp, i often go in and delete the paintbrush icons which I believe to be ad-ish. Is there any harm in deleting the word documents that are complete jibberish or the files that start out with an "mpa" and are a "CCT" file or a file that starts out "mp" and is a "DCR" file? I can get a little nutty about keeping space free, but I'm not informed enough to know anything about those files.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I am not an expert on HijackThis logs, but... If you experience a slowdown it is generally one of two things. Either a Virus - I trust your definitions are up-to-date with Norton. Secondly spyware can cause huge slowdowns, i see you have NoAds installed but you should download, install, update and then run Ad-Aware & Spybot - Search & Destroy, methinks this should improve things.

    I already have AdAware and S&D and I purchased the Norton System Works about 5 months ago.
