Hey all masterminds! :pray: I am a fairly decent PC user and run virus and syware scans regularly. Over the past few weeks I have noticed a definite slowing of my PC. Since I am not as well versed as I'd like to be in the language of PC's I will likely leave something important out--but I'll try not to! Here goes... I have edited registry’s before, although I am not particularly positive of how they work so I try to not do it unless someone gives me specific instructions to the tee…

I use AVG free v.8 antivirus/antispyware. I have run Spybot and Malwarebytes and removed only a handful of cookies.

1) At startup, an XP message comes up stating that my Windows firewall isn't on, and then it manages to come on sometime during the startup process.

2) While trying to access one specific website, the site tells me that I am not authorized to view it (this may or may not be my PC, I need to call the company as well)

3) Virtual memory too low--I have heard that this means something is running in the background that's eating up my RAM (I think it's RAM anyway)

I will go ahead and post my Hijackthis log just in case it helps at all... I don't know what else to do. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Oh--In addition to that, Adobe Flash was having installation issues a couple weeks ago as well... Not sure if this has any bearing on the issue, but who knows.

Hello and Welcome to TSF.

We no longer use HijackThis as our initial analysis tool.

We want all our members to perform the steps outlined in the link I'll give you below, before posting for assistance. There's a sticky at the top of this forum, and a
Having problems with spyware and pop-ups? First Steps
link at the top of each page.


Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

After running through all the steps, you shall have a proper set of logs. Please post them in a new topic, as this one shall be closed.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

Please note that the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum is extremely busy, and it may take a while to receive a reply.
