My web browsing slows periodically and, therefore, I've been running multiple scans to try and figure out what's going on. I have gone through the firefox help page here and do not think it's a cause of my slow loading browser. Also, I did use my IE and experienced the same problem. So, I'm worried about malware. I use avast and comodo as a default. I have run scans w/ malwarebytes' anti-malware, superantispyware and spybot search and destroy and all came up clean. I've also talked to my ISP and they said my speed appears normal.

My questions:
1. Do I need to disable/exit avast and comodo when running these scans. I noticed that comodo blocked some access from superantispyware?

2. I've also scanned with some online scanners... again do I need to disable avast/comodo to get reliable results?

3. I worried about rootkits b/c it seems they can avoid detection. I've found tdsskiller and was wondering if it is ok to download and scan by a novice? The instructions do not say whether or not to exit anti-virus and firewall... should I.

4. If I do exit from avast and comodo when running another app, should I disconnect from the internet?
