Yes I'm new to the forum. I have a strange problem. I use firefox and I know I must have triggered a spyware/malware/virus recently - I clicked on a link and some strange music played in the background, no pop ups. It just seemed odd so I ran a virus check and found a vundo virus. I applied the delete action.
However, from that point on the net runs for about 20 minutes (not even at full pace), slows, then grinds to a halt after about 30 minutes. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. A reboot takes me back to the begging, after which it all starts over.
I use a certain type of downloading software that has never worked since the problem.
However, there are zero pop ups and in fact, if I run AVG anti-virus and anti-spyware, nothing comes up (that in itself is strange because I always get at least a few tracking cookies, but nothing). Superantispyware turns up nothing. Vundofix - nothing.
I have HijackThis - would a log help? I know something is wrong but without pop ups etc I have nothing to pin it to. Any help would be much appreciated!
EDIT: I had anti-hacking features (NVIDIA) enabled along with the windows firewall! That was the problem all along. Turned out the internet would slow down when the download manager was running and the download manager would simply not work.
