The problems started around the time a updated my Adobe Flash, video and websites seemed to start slowing down right after. Maybe it was just the timing of it...but I did complete uninstalls/reinstalls of Adobe, Flash and Shockwave and it didn't make a difference....Is it normal to get an unsolicited 'adobe update' window poping up on your screen on start up without yet going online? I didn't activley do the update, it just came to me and thought, ok sure.
So I looked extensivley for Malware and found none useing Super-Anti-Spyware, MG tools, Combo-Fix to scan.(learned from a previous malware run in)
So it looked like a fake adobe malware thing but maybe that's normally how Adobe update's present themselves?, you tell me. Maybe it has nothing to do with the Adobe Update.
What I've done so far:
I googled around for other threads about this around the web and found this thing where you "Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults" and "Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults" useing a bunch of CMD prompt commands. It didn't fix the problem.
I also un-installed Avast incase that was partly to blame and didn't make a difference.
If it helps, it's either 'unable to connect to server' or loads VERY slow before dying. Like it will load a few elements over the course of 5 minutes and then just sort of stall. That's usually after I cycle the modem. After that point it's not connecting. But it shows it's able to make some sort of connection at first.
Any ideas? Included a network settings log. Any ohter scans I should make?
