Since about last week or so, I have been having an extremely sluggish connection. I dismissed this as just bad timing or something that will soon sort itself out. However lately when I open firefox, its terribly slow, any video games I attempt to play completely go mad, as in lag or glitches all over the screen, and I randomly lose and regain my connections. I downloaded Shaplus bandwidth meter yesterday and found that even when idle and nothing running, It shoots up to 196 MB. The more direct problem however, is that when my pc is on, other computers in the network are also affected in the same way. This only happens when my pc is on and connected. As soon as it's off, the connection and speed returns to normal. I have run many scans with many different programs, but nothing shows up. Could it be some sort of virus or something related? I've been having a hard time fixing this because I have no idea where to start.
