This computer is directly hooked up to the router using an ethernet cable, and then the router is connected to the comcast modem. Can I take out the ethernet cable from the router and attach it directly to the modem, to increase download speeds, and speed in general?
Thanks in advance.

I'm downloading something right now, and i'm only getting 60kbps, does spyware really effect it that much?

What type of connection do you have?
What's your ISP advertised speed?
What numbers are you getting here: http://www.speedtest.net/ ?
What are you downloading and where from?

Thanks for the help Broni, but I'm going to focus on the malware first, I should've just made a thread on how to remove that first anyways, sorry.

The speedtest said I needed a license as well.

The speedtest said I needed a license as well.

If thats the case you more than likely have malware issues as has been mentioned. That speedtest link Broni added here does not have a 'license' requirement. Therefore I doubt you actually went to the right site. Once you get your malware issues resolved we can see if you even need to repost this topic. :thumbsup:

I see your log is properly posted, here, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
