    Hi There

    It may be that my PC is a few years old but it is very slow booting up/logging on to user. Any help very much appreciated.

    All steps followed and logs attached.

    First off, it is a very bad idea to allow all users to have Admin. privileges. It is also a bad idea to allow BitTorrent to run at startup!! It leaves you wide open to all kinds of nasties. Although I am not seeing any malware in your logs, it would be a good idea to run both SAS and MBAM on each user account.

    We can clean up a few things:
    Please disable all anti-virus and anti-spyware programs while we do the following (re-enable when you are finished):

    Run C:\MGtools\analyse.exe by double clicking on it (Note: if using Vista, don't double click, use right click and select Run As Administrator). This is really HijackThis (select Do a system scan only) and select the following lines but DO NOT CLICK FIX until you exit all browser sessions including the one you are reading in right now:
    After clicking Fix, exit HJT.

    Now copy just the bold text below to notepad (Do not include any space above the word REGEDIT). Save it as fixME.reg to your desktop. Be sure the "Save as" type is set to "all files" Once you have saved it double click it and allow it to merge with the registry.
    Make sure that you tell me if you receive a success message about adding the above
    to the registry. If you do not get a success message, it definitely did not work.

    Now tell me what malware issues you are having, if any.
