My work desktop is a dual Zeon quad core with 32 gigs of ram and usually is pretty fast. Lately I noticed at times the console is sluggish and at others is seems peppy as ever. today I notice unusual network traffic on the machine I have a highjackthis log but I cant tell if there is anything bad on it.

Do you have a Symantec Endpoint Protection scheduled scan configured? It might explain a period when resources are being used and things slow down a little but with the spec CPU and amount of RAM you have I'd be surprised if you'd notice that. Nothing else in the log appears unusual other than the Toolbar with no name. What is that? A Google search suggests it might be malware.
