    Question add-ons to paths?

    Hi there Any help appreciated please.

    I regularly use Spybot and Lavasoft with nary a hint of trouble. But my puta is so slow its practically dead!
    When I run WinPatrol and/or TUT Ultimate Troubleshooter I see addons to the end of my pathway for services. eg after .exe:
    svchost.exe -k Network Services
    svchost.exe -k DcomLaunch

    Seeking further info from Winpatrol is no help re add ons but TUT tells me that if the path is not exactly as stated then I may have a virus.
    a) do these add ons tell me that service/task is virused?
    b) How do I devirus it if none of my virus programs detect them?
    Does any of the hardware etc below suggest why its become so slow?

    I have Symantecs full Security Suite and Windows firewall on Windows xpsp2 with
    Chipset : Intel i865PE
    Processor : Intel Pentium 4 @ 3001 MHz
    Physical Memory : 1024 MB (2 x 512 DDR-SDRAM PC2700 @ 166 MHz)
    Video Card : ATI Technologies Inc Radeon 9200 SE Series (RV280)
    Hard Disk : WDC WD1200BB-00DWA0 (120 GB)
    DVD-Rom Recorder VD DUAL GO-W0404A CDR, CDR-W, DVD-R (40x ) (40x )
    Monitor Type : Philips PHILIPS 107E5 15 inchs
    Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.01.2600 Service Pack 2
    DirectX : Version 9.0c

    Thanks

    Get hijackthis and post a log here.

    UNZIP it first, and put it in its own folder, then run it, and scan and copy and paste the log here.

    symantecs full security suite..........well.....just for your own personal peace of mind goto here:

    http://housecall60.trendmicro.com/en...rp.asp?id=scan

    and run a scan .......having had plenty of experiences removing trojans from systems which had the latest and greatest and up-to-date versions of norton antivirus on them and norton was sayin 'no virus' I simply dont trust that program.........either goto housecall or download and install avg free just to run it and test your system.......it's very smart to do another scan with a different program dont just rely on one antivirus prog they're not perfect and norton perhaps less perfect than many and certainly not worth paying for..... !!!
