OK, sir...
No antivirus, no firewall listed. Do you have at least Windows firewall up?
You're putting your computer in a great danger, and I don't want to see your problems again, unless you start protecting your computer.

Open HJT again, put a checkmark next to:
- O9 - Extra button: Run IMVU - {d9288080-1baa-4bc4-9cf8-a92d743db949} - C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Owner\Start Menu\Programs\IMVU\Run IMVU.lnk (file missing)
Click "Fix checked" button.

Other then that, your HJT log is clean, but you have to remember how much stuff was removed by two other programs.

Now...

Download:
- AVG free: http://free.grisoft.com/
- free Comodo firewall: http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/
- free a-squared: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/

Disable Windows firewall, IF you had it ON.

Install three above programs.

Be good, from now, on.

Not at all. All three, by default, will update themselves automatically every day, to keep your computer safe.
Just make sure, you don't change any settings, preventing them from doing so.
With Comodo, you'll have to be patient, because at the beginning a lot of its pop-ups, asking you for some permissions. Comodo will learn, and with time, you'll see less, and less pop-ups.

You're welcome...
You can't survive without protection like that. It's that simple.

It doesn't matter, slow, or not. You have to be safe. If you'll keep getting more crap, because of no protection, your computer will be even slower.
Now, let's clean it little bit more...

1. Download, and install CCleaner: http://www.ccleaner.com/

2. Read CCleaner instruction from here: http://www.jahewi.nl/ccleaner/ccleaner.html, and run CCleaner

This thread started with a slow machine...i doubt after all that's been done it's actually slower than it was.
Have you considered adding some RAM ? ?

Right now it's about the least expensive upgrade you can do to a machine...

This is way excessive. I'm sure, if you look around, you'll find 1 gig for about $70. Check crucial.com.
