My computer started running really, really slow about 2 weeks ago, and after some looking around, it seems that when I open IE8, it uses close to 100% of the CPU. I did as much researching and tweaking as I could - I didn't want to get in over my head since I'm not familiar with a lot of this. I ran virus scans, spyware, etc, but nothing has really turned up.
When I was reading through the Microsoft support forums I came across someone with a similar problem who was able to fix the issue by running HijackThis and fixing whatever needed to be fixing. I ran the program, but since I don't want to mess anything up, and I don't know how to interpret my results,
I ended up on this website searching for help with HijackThis and thought I'd post my HijackThis results here and see if anyone has any thoughts and can maybe help resolve my issue.
Here's my log:

Any thoughts about the HijackThis log or anything else with IE8 using 100% of my CPU? Thanks!
Reason for edit: remove HJT log and add as attachment.
