I have a old pentium two ibm thinkpad laptop.  The machine is running as slow as a snail.  It had a porno web browser installed on it that had an icon on the desktop called webcam.  When you clicked on it a broswer plugin would run from some website called nasty blondes.  I uninstalled the web browser and ran iefix tool and the lspfix tool .  Now Internet explorer will find other websights and so on but the machine is still lugged down to a crawl.  I ran hijack this and this is the log .  Logfile of HijackThis v1.98.0
