I have already run ad-aware and I have avast which runs constantly. I used to have AVG but it got so slow (taking over 24 hours to do a daily scan) that I got rid of it, this was when I downloaded avast by recommendation of a friend.

I am barely more than a basic computer user. I don't know where to turn next. I can usually solve my problems with a quick Google search, if I can figure out what's wrong to begin with.

At night, the LAN icon on my computer has both monitors lit up, it's sending and receiving data continuously. My computer runs TERRIBLY slow when it does this. I have no idea what is wrong or what to do next. I have been trying to clean up my computer for a while now and I'm not making any progress.

If anyone would please give me some suggestion of what to try next I would greatly appreciate it. I'm going to try to set this to e-mail me when replies are posted, if it's able to do that.

Thank You,

Try downloading malware bytes from this link and running it. It seems that you may have a virus, I had a simliar problem at one point.


Just download it, update, and run a quick scan.

What is active in TASK MANAGER when all this activity is present? Don't forget to hit the box at the bottom of the Processes tab that says "Show processes from all users".

no process shows up when it's happening that doesn't show up during other times too

nothing under "Mem usage" or "CPU" is very high, the CPU usage runs at about 3-20%

Sorted by User Name running processes are:

LOCAL SERVICE (username)
Nancy (username)
SYTEM (username)
System Idle Process

between the time that I started this thread and today the windows malicious software removal tool has removed something, i don't know if it was what was causing the problem or not as I haven't been on my computer as much lately. My computer is running better, but it still gets pretty slow sometimes. I'll try to remember to check the processes again if it seems to be stuck up/downloading things without running anything. I know I've checked them before and not found anything unusual, everything above is always there (except if I have firefox closed). Nothing is running right now besides firefox and task manager and anything that always runs in the background (including ad-aware and avast!) I have a tab open with hotmail open and a download processing for the malwarebytes which is completed pretty quickly.

WOW I just realized how long ago I posted this initially. o.o I've been terribly busy and I just was going through my e-mail and had an e-mail notifying me of a reply to my thread. I didn't realize it had been over 3 months. I honestly don't think anything's really changed except my level of tolerance.

I'm glad to get rid of all this scum :huh: thanks for the recommendation of malwarebytes.
