I've noticed my computer getting a little slower lately. AVG has identified 5 viruses that cannot be healed because "selected object is located inside the archive." I have no idea what that means or what to do about it. One of the viruses is Trojan horse Dropper.Small.7.AL.

I run AVG (newest version), as well as Adaware, Spybot, Spyware Blaster, and Spyware Guard.

I am including a Highjack This log in case you'd like to see it.

Turn off System Restore:

On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Run your scan again and reboot.

To create a restore point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

I have been reading the info on that link you gave, and I am a little confused about the ActiveX control settings. How do I determine what to set these at:

"Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" (currently set to disable)

"Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" (currently set to enable)

"Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting" (currently set to enable)

I don't understand what these are for at all. I just don't want any unwanted intruders getting into my computer.

Well...I changed some ActiveX settings, and it screwed up some things for me. I couldn't access certain websites I like to visit. So I changed the settings back to what they were (i believe). But now I'm having trouble seeing some pictures on websites. I see some, but others are just red x's. I try to r-click and "show picture"...doesn't work. Yes, I have "show pictures" checking in internet options. Not sure if this is related, but not being able to see pictures is getting very frustrating.
