    I hope this is what you wanted...I ran Ad-Aware 6
    The problem with my computer is that it takes a long time to process anything, except for things that are either used a lot or recently used. Back in the day I downloaded Kazaa, and recently I downloaded Ares, another shareware program, that totally slowed down my computer. So I uninstalled it, but I left some of the fragmentary downloading files in the "my Shared Folder". I tried to delete them but they insist that "another program" is using it. I've checked this start up menu by going RUN/MSSETUP or something like that, and it shows that it is still in my startup! So, yeah, my computer is slow, my music gets choppy when I open Explorer, and my divx's are choppy. Thanks

    Have Hijack This fix the following by placing a check in the appropriate box and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [ares] "C:\Program Files\Ares\Ares.exe" -h

    eboot, and delete the folder C:\Program Files\Ares.

    See if that improves matters.
    Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if the problem persists.

    Hey, the problem isn't fixed. it does seem to be slightly less "glitchy" now. I had already deleted the folder before. I've ran searches for it in but am unable to find it.
    The startup is (and has been because of ARES) relatively slow. Most of my start up programs will load up on reboot but the broadband connection and MSN Messenger take much longer to appear on my quick taskbar. It usually means I can't even get on the internet until the icon appears.

    Actually, I've found that the computer is more randomly "glitchy"

    Definition of Glitchy: Music cuts in and out, mouse freezes in postion and then resumes its position if it didn't freeze.
