My laptop is constantly crashing lately. It first started when I would try to run spyware Dr, adware then it started while playing flash games online. I thought maybe it's the motherboard, my laptop kept crashing like this in January I sent it back to HP to have it fixed they replaced the mother board. My laptop also gets extreamly hot 76C. I have burn marks on my legs from it I have since started using AOC external fan (lately it's not helping much) my fans start running really loud and the laptop gets wicked hot. Anyway I decided I wanted to scan my system for viruses etc before I ship this back to HP to have them fix it again. Below is all the steps I have taken as well as log files.

No malware was found in add/remove

I Enable viewing of hidden files, system files and file extensions

Driver Detective: ran and found one bad driver,
Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
I went to HP and dlíd an updated driver. Ran Driver Detective again and the driver still says bad.

Default Re: Please help

Are Ewido and Spy Sweeper paid versions or free trials. If free trial version, uninstall them and keep Windows Defender. Having all three will put a strain on system resources.

Your log does not show any malware to be concerned with but you can fix the below line using HijackThis:
O19 - User stylesheet: (file missing)

Overheating issues should be addressed in the Hardware Forum.
