I know you're trying to be cute, but cute doesn't help us understand your question. What is the specific problem you are having?

Well it`s hard to specific the problem im having.

With the recent windows updates, my computer always get BSoD, slow connection startup when computer is open/restart. I did a system restore to roll back before the windows updates installation, everything is fine.

Sometime, my computer is all right and my internet connection is quick. Sometime, it`s the opposite, it gets slow and it might cut my internet for a few seconds. I don't why. I scanned with my spybot, AntiVirus Avast and MalwareByte Antimalware, nothing is found. When it get slow, I suspect my computer might probably get zombified secretly...

I have no idea what "zombified" means. It certainly isn't a technical term.

Do you have the same issues if you boot to safe mode?

What I mean is when a computer is a zombie (someone taking the computer in order to send spam message).

I didn't try the same issues in safe mode before the system restore.

Let's try this first off.. since you did say you have seen some BSOD's

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Now that we understand what you were trying to ask...take a look at Receiving Help In The Am I Hacked Forum.
