My Sony laptop is incredibly slow, and I think that is causing some problems with my connection to the internet.

Are any of the following likely to be the cause of my poor system performance?

Hi Spr12ian,

There is only a couple of things in your HijackThis log file that I would question however, I am not an expert on that so I'll leave it to the experts. But, in the mean time, you can do a little clean up and see if it helps. Start with the startup items. You may have too many programs trying to load up at the start up and run in the back ground which would slow down your computer. Go to Start>Run>Type msconfig>Startup tab. You can basicly uncheck everything except your antivirus and firewall programs. Second, clean up your temporary and temporary internet files. Intenet Explorer>Tools>Internet Options>General Tab>Delete cookies. Do the same for Delete Files. Or, you can download CCleaner and let it do it for you. It also cleans the leftovers from uninstalled programs, etc. It's very easy to use. Use only the Windows and Applications parts. Hope this helps.

There;s nothing that I can see as critical. The only thing which is a ? is WildTangent. This has been listed as spyware, even though they say it's not. If you don't play online games that use WT, then I would uninstall it.
