There appears to be a lot of Windows system files missing - may be your issue?

Have you been trying to fix the issue before running hijackthis? Uninstalling things?

Dont worry about the missing entries, thats just HJT.

Looks ok to me. I wouldnt bother with Zonealarm. Win7's firewall is good enough

That second one is DRM that reports back, I found it with the latest Paintshop. Nasty thing, uses resources.

One thing you will find - since this is a new PC, windows will be doing updates the moment its on the internet, these depending on what programs are installed can be several hundred MB.

uninstall any of the browser toolbars you aren't using (BHOs)

As far as I'm aware search indexing in windows 7 is far better at resource management and that sort of thing, so it shouldn't be all that necessary.

Personally I'd remove all the automatic updaters for your software and such.

O23 - Service: Updater Service - Acer Group - C:\Program Files\Gateway\Gateway Updater\UpdaterService.exe

O23 - Service: StumbleUponUpdateService - stumbleupon.com - C:\Program Files (x86)\StumbleUpon\StumbleUponUpdateService.exe

O23 - Service: GamesAppService - WildTangent, Inc. - C:\Program Files (x86)\WildTangent Games\App\GamesAppService.exe - This one could even be treated as spyware. I'd uninstall all mentions of wild tangent games, they're horrible at eating resources and reporting back what you're doing.

O23 - Service: GRegService (Greg_Service) - Acer Incorporated - C:\Program Files (x86)\Gateway\Registration\GregHSRW.exe

O23 - Service: Google Update Service (gupdate) (gupdate) - Google Inc. - C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe

O23 - Service: Google Software Updater (gusvc) - Google - C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Common\Google Updater\GoogleUpdaterService.exe


O23 - Service: Nero BackItUp Scheduler 4.0 - Nero AG - C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Nero\Nero BackItUp 4\NBService.exe - If you're going to do backups yourself, then disable this. Most would simply ignore its notifications anyway.


O23 - Service: ##Id_String1.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762# # (Bonjour Service) - Apple Computer, Inc. - C:\Program Files (x86)\Bonjour\mDNSResponder.exe - whatever this is, it's got apple in the name. I'd kill it even if I didn't need to.

There's a few others there that I'm not sure of, but you could google them and see if you can disable them safely.

"O23 - Service: Updater Service - Acer Group - C:\Program Files\Gateway\Gateway Updater\UpdaterService.exe"

Acer group = Gateway PC : huh ???
Are Gateway PC's now Acer ??

too much crap installed, thats the technical description :thumbs:
Uninstall ALL your IE toolbars & default (Reset) IE in Control Panel internet properties.
Run Services.msc (run as admin) & permanantly disable all google, nero ,GamesAppServiceservices, Creative###... just for a start
Disable Nero. It may be trying to do a backup, or indexing the HD.
remove StumbleUpon, PCPitstop, ZoneAlarm, WildTangent Games,
Personally Id uninstall Nero as well, Its a shocker nowadays(was once good)

Also check what speed the CPU is actually running at. Sometime the OS can get stuck powersaving mode , leaving the CPU permantly at low speed.
