Normally my line is about 1mb, yea I know it is pretty terrible but it is the best I can get. When my laptop is switched off my internet behaves at its normal speed, I can play games normally, watch videos on youtube and all that jazz. However as soon as i turn my laptop on my ping goes through the roof and my download speed drastically decreases to between a quarter and a half of what im usually getting. I can't for the lfie of me find out what it is. Ive tried several differnt anti-virus software scans and they have all come up with nothing. I use norton360 on my laptop and that cannot find a thing. There have been some errors when downlaoding windows updates, and when I search the error code it says windows will not update as there is some malware on my computer and updating would cause it to be unstable.
This has been going on for days any help would be very appreciated.
Edit: Something interesting. I downloaded net limiter to see if that would show what my laptop is downloading, It says theres a programme called svchost.exe that is constantly downloading at about 100kb. Is that normal for this programme or is it a virus masquerading as svchost.exe? Also when I limit its download speed my internet goes back to normal.
