Hi, Xp has been running slower then usual,it takes longer to start up and the sound is choppy (both system sounds and music). I haven't installed anything lately other then Spyware Doc and don't know what is causing the problem. I have 766mb RAM and a 40 gb hd (with around 7 gigs free but I 've had the pc working faster on 2 gigs before) I've scanned with AVG and Spyware Doctor but it's still the same. I got this log from Hijack This.

It'd be great if someone could look over the log, again, I don't know why it's so slow now, the system has done better under worse conditions. Thanks.
Edit: Don't know why there's so many links in there, are they suppose to be there? :confused:

Ever considered trying a different operation system? Windows is always bound to slow down, usually in a short amount of time. I switched to Linux, so if your work doesn't require Microsoft products you should look for a distribution that suits you. I can assure you that there will be much fewer speed issues.
