can you please clarify which antivirus programs you have installed ?

also through whom do you have your Broad band line and is there any antivirus protection built into it?

Do we assume you are on XP with all your updates up to date?

Hello feeder,

Let's try another malware removal program and see what it finds.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Please post the MalwareBytes log in your next reply.

But my internet is still choppy
especially with viral videos and the bytes received is still much larger than bytes sent, so i think like something is sending my PC extra info that it shouldn't get.

especially with viral videos


Can you explain what you mean by "viral videos" please?

bytes received is still much larger than bytes sent


Are you referring to the transfer speed or the number? If the number, that would make sense because videos contain a large number of bytes. Far larger than plain audio or text.

And i just found out that there were lines added to my hosts file


Can you list what those are please?

by viral videos, i mean videos from youtube and other sites like that.

and I mean the number, its not normal coz before it wasnt this way whenthings were still going smoothly

by the way i was able to delete the lines through hijack this...


so anyway the internet was still slow, so i reformatted, but then the net is still slow and the first time i reformatted the lines that were added to my hosts file came back.
so i reformatted again.

oh and the lines were i think.

As this appears to NOT be malware related you should start a new topic in the netwoking forum. This one has too many replies so I feel it is better not to move this one there. I will close this topic to prevent confusion.
