I use windows XP pro and have cable internet.
Over the last 1-2 weeks i have noticed that my internet speeds have reduced drastically.
It takes 40-50 secs to open gmail whereas before it used to to open in under 5 secs.
Also streaming videos on youtube was never a problem. I could watch them continuously.But now the transfer rate is so slow that it takes an hour to load a 5 min video.
Moreoer , when i tried to download an ebook, it showed transfer rate at 2kbps whereas i used to get atleast 120/130 kbps. At peak hours i used to 30kbps and that was the bare minimum over the last 2 yrs atleast.
Am i infected? I ran virus checks and they came up with nothing.
