Here is a hijack log from my computer, which is painfully slow again and I think it's infected with something - which of these items should I fix?

How Much RAM are u using for ur System ??

Goto Start>Run>msconfig>Startup
and untick the applications which are un-needed !!

U have these BAD entries which are needed to be fixed.... so first move the hijakchtis folder to a New Folder on ur Desktop, then turn off ur System Restore and fix these lines !!

Generally, you have a very large number of running processes - 45, and also a large number of autostarting items (the HKLM\..\Run: entries) - 25. A clean system would have like 20 and <5, respectively.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [zBrowser Launcher] C:\Program Files\Logitech\iTouch\iTouch.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Real Spy Monitor] C:\Program Files\Real Spy Monitor\Real Spy Monitor.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

The above don't need to autostart, probably

These 2 are antivirus, i hope...
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvCplDaemon] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvCpl.dll,NvStartup
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NAV Agent] C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1\navapw32.exe

These don't need to autostart I guess. Low ink level will probably give an alert anyway, without having to run a monitor all the time... just as an example.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MMTray] C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mm_tray.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Ink Monitor] C:\Program Files\EPSON\Ink Monitor\InkMonitor.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [EPSON Stylus Photo RX500] C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\E_S4I2K1.EXE /P24 "EPSON Stylus Photo RX500" /O6 "USB001" /M "Stylus Photo RX500"
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [EM_EXEC] C:\PROGRA~1\MOUSEW~1\SYSTEM\EM_EXEC.EXE
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [DwlClient] C:\Program Files\Common Files\Dell\EUSW\Support.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [diagent] "C:\Program Files\Creative\SBLive\Diagnostics\diagent.exe" startup
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [AdaptecDirectCD] "C:\Program Files\Roxio\Easy CD Creator 5\DirectCD\DirectCD.exe"

And what's this?
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [nwiz] nwiz.exe /install

Some Jukebox item again?
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mmtask] C:\Program Files\MUSICMATCH\MUSICMATCH Jukebox\mmtask.exe

Even if you use MSWorks, you don't need to have a continuous watch for updates. run once in a while and not as autostart.
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Works Update Detection] C:\Program Files\Microsoft Works\WkDetect.exe


All these autostarting items will slow down startup and some keep up activity that uses CPU cycles and RAM, very probably for no benefit at all.
