Post 3+ Months Ago

well i'll try to be as detailed as possable:

my computer is about 7 months old, and up untill...julyish it was running very fast and excellent, then it started taking forever to start up and do anything, so i did a system restore, that seem to fix the probelm for a while, then in mid-september i think, the same problem, i attempted to do a system restore, finding that the earliest restore point was only about 1-2 weeks prior, and it did not fix the problem, i have been "dealing" with it since, but its becoming unbearable, my computer is at the point where i have to shut down every single not essential program just to watch a video, other wise the audio and video are extreamly choppy, and even with all the prorams shut off, ever 15-20 minutes it starts the choppiness again, for about a minute or 2

when it happens i check that task manager to check for memmory leaks or CPU hogs, but to my surprise and aggrivation, the total memory or "commit charge" is a mere 4-500 mb out of a total 2048mb(1gb physical ram, with 1 gb virutal), and also as for CPU usage, the total in the status bar of the task manager holds steady around 50% when the choppy audio/video is happening, and yet the ONLY prosses that is showing above 3-5% useage is the "System Idle Prosses" which hovers between 85-99%

i have disabled all programs from starting up via MS config, and i have also ended anything else that might have started up after starting my computer (which takes 15-20 minutes before its usable), at one point i had the commit charge down to 295 mb and the choppiness of the movie still happend.

now the video is just an example of the laggyness of the computer, other symptoms that happen at the same time is a jerky mouse pointer, constant hour glass, blank or empty menus, and just general slow ness

apart from the exstream slow points, the computer is still very slow for its age and what is running, it just simply doesn't make sence for me, i have already done virus scans, spyware scans, system restores, registry scans, defrags, scan disks

i'm at a lose for the next step and figured it was time to seek help

here is my hijack this log:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = 128.10.19.52.:3124

Did you set that proxy server?

O10 - Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\windows\system32\avgfwafu.dll

What's that?

I'd get rid of Yahoo Tool Bar as well.

There are probably more things in the log but reading them makes me dizzy, so someone else can finish the job.

Toolbars use BHOs and BHOs make a system vulnerable.

You see similar results only because it's in other Hijack This logs from people who have a similar problem. It appears to be a legit program.
I'm getting dizzy again from reading that log. I have to rest some more.

There's nothing serious on your log nitemare.

Try this:
Download and run LSP-Fix to repair your winsock 2 settings from here (this will remove those 'Unknown file in Winsock LSP' entries): http://www.cexx.org/LSPFix.exe

Check this entry:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WhatPulse] C:\Program Files\WhatPulse\WhatPulse.exe

This point to a keylogger called What Pulse (http://whatpulse.org/). It looks legitimate but if it is logging every key you press it will eventually slow down your system.

Another strange entry is this:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Kalender] C:\Program Files\Kalender\Kalender.exe

I can't find any information about this program, if you don't recognize it try to remove it.

That's all I can find at the moment.
