1. The firewall is off. Did you install some other firewall or turn it off?
2. That was a relief to see. It's taken days to get past temp files and the first check. WHAT'S NEXT?
a. XP will boot slower as the machine ages or there are updates to antivirus/other that do more checks at boot time. Your less seasoned owners will thing something is wrong. It's not. This means that a lot of folk get taken to the cleaners by taking it to a service counter or buying those speedup apps.
b. HIJACKTHIS is next. We'll use it just for the report.

Let's hope this doesn't take as long as RKILL took to get the results. It's a report. We are not changing a thing. I'm going to look for common issues I know about and if I don't see any we turn to the usual dissection of the PC. What is it, how old, stories about how you installed, the old XP DMA issue and more.
3. THE XP DMA ISSUE. We're at over a dozen posts and you have not revealed what this PC is. Everytime you post you see this in RED.
"If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem."
I can't tell if the XP DMA issue applies. It's an simple thing to address as you run some batch/script and no reboot is required except to see if it helped. Microsoft never issued a fix for it so we have to manually reset it.
