Hi. My computer runs slowly from time to time. In fact it all but locks up. I cannot access anything until whatever is happening finishes. This is random and I have not related it to anything in particular except that it seems to happen when I first log in and a reboot seems to solve it.

I have chased out various suspicious programs with CA Security Center (AV and Anti-spyware) and Spy-Bot SD. It's only recently that things have started slowing down and I started wondering about rootkits and thereby ran across this site. Below is my DDS log. The zip is attached.

Is there anything that looks suspicious in these files?
