I am having a problem where my internet slows to the point of crawling. Downloads go from 800 kb/s (the norm) to 50 kb/s and ping goes from approximately 40 to 1300 when the slow down occurs. I have never had issues with my cable company for the 4 years I've used them. This has been happening for 3 days. I was about to simply try and reformat, but I heard about combofix and was interested.

Things I have done so far.

Run a boot scan with avast - found nothing
Ran Malwarebytes - found a trojan (sorry don't remember the name) and removed it
Onboard NIC card died in the process so I bought a pci nic card which is still giving me the same issues.
Had my cable company troubleshoot. They said everything seems fine on the modems end.
Secondary computer does not have the same issues using the same router.

Everything I read said to get an expert to help prior to trying combofix so here I am. I did run a Hijackthis file and saw nothing odd although I'm not an expert by any means.
