Hello Folks,

Looking for some help with browser speed.

For about three weeks my browser speed has plummeted and I can't seem to fix it.

I am fairly certain its not malware, I have cleaned it and scrubbed it(panda security and hijack this). The only thing that does seem to help is if I repair my connection and briefly things get better and pages load like they did before this trouble struck but after a few moments things slow back down and simple web pages take a minute or two to load.

I think perhaps this started when I began using bit torrent again. Could it be that my internet provider intentionally slowed my connection because I was using bit torrent (I have since stopped using it)?

Also, my other laptop on my wireless connection seems to run just fine no slow loading at all.

Any help would be great,
Brad

Hello silfo80,

Since your other computer has no signs of browser speed slowness, it's unlikely your ISP has put any Fairness Access Policy in effect. This is when you have maxed out your download threshold and a speed restriction is placed on your connection.

It looks like your topic in HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal was not quite completed.
You can PM the helper in the topic and request that it be reopened so your OS can be looked at.
Your topic is Possible Malwarecrush Attack
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

You think?

I was fairly certain I got rid of the malware (the little icon in my taskbar is gone and I know what everything is on my Hijack This list). Any thing else it could be?

Thanks so much,
BRad

To be honest, HJT is not my area of expertise, but the timeline is right, and the topic was never completed.

Can you still briefly repair the connection?

Perhaps you'd like to have a look at a few articles related to your problem:
