XP is really slow I think there might be a problem with the hard drive but not sure. have tried various virus and other programs but runs really slow. there are some unneccessary programs and whatnot but it is my parents computer and mom is not computer savvy. Any ideas? I have seen people ask for the log file of hijack this so I thought I would post it. Also posting the results of Sysinfo since the forum recommended it.

Do the following in the order that I've listed them.

------------------------------------------------------

Start HiJackThis, then click "Do a system scan only".

The scan is quick and should be done in 30 seconds or less.

After it's done, put a checkmark in these log entries:

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {D3D233D5-9F6D-436C-B6C7-E63F77503B30} - (no file

O3 - Toolbar: WeatherBlink - {f20de5e0-2a6e-4c54-985f-1cf59551ce39} - C:\Program Files\WeatherBlink\bar\1.bin\gcbar.dll

O4 - Global Startup: Internet Explorer blank.lnk = C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

O9 - Extra button: Go to PlaySushi web site - {EBD24BD3-E272-4FA3-A8BA-C5D709757CAB} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocvw.dll

O9 - Extra button: Messenger - {FB5F1910-F110-11d2-BB9E-00C04F795683} - C:\Program Files\Messenger\msmsgs.exe

After you confirm that you put a checkmark in the correct log entries, click "Fix Checked - Yes".

Close HiJackThis, then restart the computer.

------------------------------------------------------

Click Start - Run, then type in

%temp%

and then click OK.

Click Start - Run, then type in

c:\windows\temp

and then click OK.

Once those 2 temp folders appear and you can view their contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside them.

If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal behavior. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

After you're done, empty the Recycle Bin and then restart the computer.

------------------------------------------------------

Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

Click on the "Save List" button.

Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere.

It'll then open in Notepad.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

I'm surprised to see Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and a MyWebSearch related toolbar co-existing on your computer. Have you recently run a Quick Scan with the latest definition updates from Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?

In any case, please do follow flavallee's instructions from post #3 on Fixing those entries in HijackThis.

I would recommend trimming down your Startup entries:

Click Start > Run > type msconfig

Click OK.

Select the Startup tab.

Uncheck the items related to the following entries:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Java\Java Update\jusched.exe"

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RTHDCPL] RTHDCPL.EXE

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Persistence] C:\WINDOWS\system32\igfxpers.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MsmqIntCert] regsvr32 /s mqrt.dll (not sure why you would need that and why it was put there in the first place)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Default Manager] "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack\Default Manager\DefMgr.exe" -resume

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware] "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe" /starttray (can be unchecked if it's the free version with no real-time scanning)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [IgfxTray] C:\WINDOWS\system32\igfxtray.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HotKeysCmds] C:\WINDOWS\system32\hkcmd.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Adobe ARM] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe"

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Weather] C:\Program Files\AWS\WeatherBug\Weather.exe 1

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [LightScribe Control Panel] C:\Program Files\Common Files\LightScribe\LightScribeControlPanel.exe -hidden

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Google Update] "C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe" /c

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [DW6] "C:\Program Files\The Weather Channel FW\Desktop\DesktopWeather.exe"


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [BgMonitor_{79662E04-7C6C-4d9f-84C7-88D8A56B10AA}] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\Lib\NMBgMonitor.exe"


Restart the computer.


After restarting, when the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, ignore the message. Put a check mark in that window, then click OK.

The next step might be to boot your computer into Safe Mode to notice if there's a real improvement on speed. If there is indeed an improvement, run a Clean Boot procedure with the remaining Startup and Services entries, to hopefully isolate the offending application(s).

If still no luck, a Memtest to test your RAM might be in order.

well this time safe mode didn't hang at avgsideh.sys(I think that was the name) and it does seem faster but not by much so I'm going to give memtest a try. by the way from some other problems I've seen online suggest it might be a problem with the harddrive. Is there a way to test that or is that not likely to be the problem

You can also check for errors on the hard drive with chkdsk /r.


Oh, and I just noticed a couple of processes usually slowing things down quite a bit:

The SearchIndexer.exe and SearchProtocolHost.exe are launched by the Windows Search service.

Click Start > Run > type services.msc

Click OK.

Scroll down to the Windows Search service. Double-click it to Stop and Disable it.

Make sure the Indexing Service is also Stopped and Disabled.

ran chkdsk with the r flag as one of the first things two days ago. let it run ovewrnight and it didn't seem to find anything or make a difference. the hd also has some fragmentation but windows didn't recommend defreagging it when I use the analyze option

tried disabling search and the computer is comparatively snappy. I wouldn't call it like new but at least now it is on the same order of magnitude. the hard drive still seems unusually active though but at least xp is now up in about 3 and a half minutes as opposed to 7+

Sometimes, updating certain drivers and making sure Windows is up-to-date can help.
