Ok, system is serious screwed it seems. Got my browser hijacked today. Looks like I deleted the main part, but I have many other problems now. After I followed a bunch of directions I got; windows media player wouldn't work, so I had to reinstall it. Still have the hijack thing where if I type in something like www.fijrijfijrijfijrgfr.com it will take me to a hijacked page, but my home page is mine, and under control. Noticed under task manager that my CPU is running at around 50% with nothing open, and my memory has been increasing...was at almost a gig when I last shut off the comp (needed virtual memory expanded). I've been running adaware and spybot, and they both find less than 30. Thus, I don't really see any excessive spyware, and don't see a significant browser hijack left, so why is my computer so slow and messed up? In addition, took 30 seconds to get from the power on password to the windows is loading screen (it seemed to hang with just a white cursor flashing for a moment). Also, when I am logging onto windows 2000, I type in my password, and it takes like 60 seconds for what I typed to show and for it to log in. Can't get norton live update to find its server. Trying to run the antivirus "trend" but ie is crashing when I try to install it. Don't know what other info to give. I guess I will give my hijack this log file:

There is very little on your computer that would result in a slowdown as far as spyware is concerned. Two R entries can be removed.

Check the following items in HiJackThis:
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://red.clientapp...://my.yahoo.com
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Search

Close all open windows except HiJackThis and press 'Fix Checked'.

There is also this entry:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [wcmdmgr] C:\WINNT\wt\updater\wcmdmgrl.exe -launch

Which is Wildtanget updater. If you do not need it, remove it also and then delete the entire folder.
