My internet has been lagging on and off for over a month now. I use firefox the most and when it happens I run CCleaner, and clear the entire history. Sometimes that will get the internet up and working again for a little bit but not always. I also will reset the router, but I'm pretty positive its not a router issue because we have a wireless network and my roomate's laptop has no connectivity issues. Because it doesn't seem to be a hardware issue, I'm assuming its malware or something along those lines. I've tried loading up multiple browsers to see if it's an issue that's just associated with firefox but the internet won't work on Opera or IE either. For good measure (and because I was desperate) I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but as expected, that made no difference. What's odd is most of the time, even when I can't get any web-pages to load, my torrents will still run and I will still be connected to MSN messenger. I can also normally load mmorpgs and play relatively uninterrupted (I might lose my connection once in 2 hours of gaming).
I've run spybot S&D and cleared out what malware it found but the problem is still happening. I've run avast and found nothing suspicious. A while back (around the time this became an issue) my gmail seemed to have a virus. I didn't open anything suspicious but I loaded it up one day to see that it had sent a suspicious email to everyone in my address book.
I already used combofix yesterday on the recommendation of a friend, so I'm sorry for that since it says I'm not supposed to.
Also, I couldn't make a DDS log because it isn't supported by my system (WinXP 64), so I'm just attaching the GMER log

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below I will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.
