    Hi,
    My computer is infected with something, I ran the Norton Flashback Detection and it says that I do not have it. Though I am running 10.5 so I am not sure if it would detect it on my system because most fixes seem to be designed for 10.7 and later.

    Everytime I open software update, iTunes, or Dashboard they crash. Safari always freezes and the system runs slow in general.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It does not need to be malware. But if you want to be sure, try ClamXav.

    Anyway, does it also happen in another, even temporarily created, user account?

    Your problem isn't malware-related. Launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes", then click on the CPU column heading once or twice, so the arrow points downward (highest values on top). Also, click on the System Memory tab at the bottom. Then take a screen shot, scroll down to see the rest of the list, take another screen shot and post them.

    Odd

    It's odd you have a process called "cron" running. In Terminal, type "sudo crontab -l" and let me know what it says. Beyond that, does this issue occur in all user accounts? You should post the full log report, too. Additionally, did you do the obvious like resetting Safari?
