I'm running win XP and this is a new problem that I'm getting: it takes an unreasonable amount of time to open up even a simple file such as a txt file. Moreover the open file dialog box and its children (i.e. browse, save as, save target as, load file, etc) take a very long time to show up as well. Furthermore the computer kind of hangs for a sec or so when a new download is finished (in Firefox) although the mouse pointer still moves... Seems like a read/write issue. This issue doesn't belong to OS problems since the XP used to work fine and I don't think it's OS-related anyways.

Now the interesting part is that I have run many diffirent AV's (Panda, AVG, Symantec online) as well as adware detectors such as AdAware and HijackThis (I have gone through the HJT log and removed everything suspicious). They did find some garbage which I removed. I have also tried disabling DNS Client but obviously to no avail... I am really clueless as to what may have caused this. Any help would be appreciated. Here's the HJT log anyways:

Yeah that's what I thought. Maybe I should post this in the Win XP section since it doesn't seem to be a virus/spyware issue (although I can't think why it would be an OS-related issue either)...
