Redirected to Google-Analytics and insanely slow browser and download speeds

Hello all,

For the past 3 weeks I have been in a constant battle with my computer and trying to fix it. I am getting browser misdirects to google-analytics and it is almost impossible to browse any websites other than search engines. I have tested this in multiple browsers with the same results. Also, my download speed in a browser is somewhere in the single digits of Kbps, making the downloading of software incredibly difficult.

Over this period of time, I have run full spans of Kaspersky, Spybot Search and Destroy, MBAM, and Ad Aware. I have also ran Combofix, MBAM and TDSS in safe mode. Several infections have been removed, but it seems to have had no effect.

I have also tried deleting my browser cache's, reinstalling my operation system (Windows 7 Profession 64 bit) by upgrading my existing OS, replacing my existing OS, and again on a new partition. All to no success.

My computer has 2 hard drives and one external. The one hard drive is from my old computer, and I use it as a backup for my old system. The external is essentially storage for movies, music, etc. I have done scans with MBAM on these as well and they are clean.

Lastly, the internet connection method I use is a wired connection that runs through a Cisco Powerline over Ethernet station, which connects to a Linksys router on the floor below. I have not attempted to reset either.

Please help!!

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Edit: For OS information

Hello, well having run all of those,including ComboFix which you should never use on your own and it doesn't work on 64 biy Systems..... we need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I ran DDS successfully and posted the log in this thread

I did run GMER but it did not have full functionality. The areas it did scan came up clean.

Thanks for the taking the time to help, boopme!

You're welcome. We are very busy in the DDS section. It will be a couple days for a reply. They will reply all logs are cared for.

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
