Hi All,

I am a newbie here. :)

My PC have been having a little delay after a page loads (if you know what I mean). It has also been switching itself off now and again too.

Checked for viruses and malware etc. All clear.

Cleaned the interior of the tower (running a lot quieter now too :)).

I have emptied the recycle bin and hard deleted the contents of it.

My next step is on the startup bar.

I am unsure which programmes are needed and which ones I can untick on startup. I have unticked the DivXUpdates one.

I also notice that there are two on there (please see screenshot attached and in this post) of what appear to be Chinese or Japanese - That I have Encircled in red. Does anyone know what these are for please?

I use PrevX and Malwarebytes (current updates) and Avast free home anti-virus.

Your help is appreciated.

Most of the checked startup entries that I see in your screenshot can be unchecked in Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab).

Since I'm unable to see the entire command lines, let's see a HiJackThis log.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.

The free ccleaner can be downloaded from FileHippo as surferdude2 says.
The official Piriform download is found here.

I notice that you have regGenie installed. Using any registry cleaner is typically recommended against on this forum; they do not improve the performance of your computer and many cause a lot of real problems if you execute their proposed fixes.
