I am new to this site and have been having issues for about one month. Running XPpro.
I have downloaded malewarebytes and gotten rid of some bad stuff. Also, upgraded to Kaspersky, but no viruses found. I can't update to the latest maleware or virus software for either piece of software. Opening and using web pages is difficult at best.
My problem is my download speed on Hughes.net is extremely slow 30-50kps versus the 1000+ that it should be. Was on the phone with hughes.net tech support the other day for nearly two hours and the system is working correctly, just slow. Upload speeds are okay.
Last night I found a subdirectory under the network places 'client network' with a link to Www.mansfieldct.org This is a local government site for Mansfield, CT, but when I go to this site, it changes to a .org site.
The first 'W' is capitalized and the other two are lower case.
I cannot get properties or delete this file.
I also saw briefly two days ago a quick windown popup that stated I had 8 communication ports open. I only have this one computer directly connected to the internet, so I think the site under client network is the bad boy.
I have downloaded Combofix onto a flash drive, from another computer, since I can't do it on my computer, and will run if required.
All my files are backed up.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
I am at work today, and will get back home this afternoon.
