Windows 7: Very slow pc, multiple processes

dont even know what proxy servers are, let alone how to use them, Changing all the passwords, will do that, could this be the virus that causes the lag
also

Since it looks like I have a lot of infected things on my pc ( thats what i get from it)
What would be the best way to get rid of all this things? which scanner should i use or just kill them all with Hijack?

AVG is running well i think it is, logo apears in right bottom of taskbar, It says everything is fine tho, which clearly is not the case here, What virus scanner would be the best for Win7 any way , i Download alot, most of it from Warez using Rapidshare account, scan alle my files with AVG before extracting them so i dont know how this got on here, I dont use torrents and I never have, this pc is 9 months old, never had any problems with virusses ever, this is first time, and im using pc for 5 years or so.

If your that infected and unfortunate enough to be useing AVG you should just backup all your files and reformat.

You have been useing such poor protection the infections are probably everywhere.

Once you have reinstalled everyting use a good AV. ESET is the best bar none.
You will get a lot of people telling you different but believe me I have been useing it for the last 6 or 7 years and have seen it work miracles.

Sometimes I use it for a very quick analysis... I do not rely on and never have used it for removing bad entries. Too many 'false' items will be detected on a HJT log.

I can see from the log that this computer is infected. Since fonziesponzie doesn't even know what a proxy server is, ( uInternet Settings,ProxyServer = http=127.0.0.1:5555), we have a definite "Backdoor Trojan" here.

Nope, it's not running! It's been disabled by the Trogan Downloader! (Bolded emphasis is mine in the quote)

@fonziesponzie, I would suggest that you go to What the Tech Malware Removal - Virus, Spyware, Rootkit, Search Redirect. Fake Alert - What the Tech
Or
Bleeping Computer BleepingComputer.com -> Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs

Follow either of their 'guidline instructions' and post a new topic to get the help you need!

DO NOT post in both forums

You need to make sure that it's not running then you can delete it (that is if you can find all the files). It'd be best to test the AVG Live CD, less headache for you.

Give Dr Web Cureit a run.
Dr.Web CureIt! — download free anti-virus! Cure viruses, Best free anti-virus scanner!

Get rid of AVG and use one of the free AV's realtime - Avast, Avira or MSE with Malawarebytes as on demand.

If and when you are clean then you may want to look into how to be really secure using decent security apps such as Sandboxie, Defensewall, Returnil, Shadow Defender to name a few.

I installed ESET smert security and I'm scanning with this, Has found more threads than any of the other AV's I used,
I should probably check the forum bout proctection software, I Thought insatlling a Program Like AVG was more then enough, apperntly not, as i said before, my first encouter with Visrusses

Scanning with ESET came op with these threads, all have been deleted
