Recently, my friend's internet connection has suddenly slowed down a lot. He did speed tests recently and it gave him a download speed of 1.6 MB/s or so, but now it barely reaches 100 KB/s. I'm posting this for him because his connection has become so slow that he can barely load this page and ask for help. (on a side note, he also can't use any tabs other than "applications" on his task manager, they don't show up) I think he might have been visiting some dodgy movie streaming websites like 1channel.ch and downloading some suspicious programs like the GameBox Toolbar. He's tried checking the leads on his router, restarting several times, running an AVG scan etc, but we can't figure out what's wrong so I'm wondering if malware may have something to do with it. He's running Windows 7 64-bit. I got him to run HiJackThis and the log is included below:

There are a couple of things on there that look a little odd to me, might just be paranoia but any information on things to try or things that look suspicious would be appreciated.

Thank you

Greetings Conkercorner and Welcome to the forum,

Having briefly scanned over your log, I can say that AVG installed along with Bullguard would probably be sufficient to slow that thing down...but along with these, there is also some indication that a McAfee scan service is running. These all will cause conflict when running at the same time. System instability will result and data loss is possible from a system crash that can also occur from these conflicts. Your friend should decide which to keep and uninstall the others.

My bigger concern though is the presence of uTorrent. The various file sharing programs are likely "spyware" free by themselves, although I cannot personally attest to it. But there is a risk involved with these programs when/if one actually downloads some file or program using these file sharing applications. Malware authors are known for uploading files packed with their work. The worst of the worse is out there...trojan back doors and rootkits among them. In addition to that possibility, I have also read that music/movie files have been uploaded purposely for infecting users systems who use file sharing to download these type of files. If you know your friend has indeed downloaded anything using the uTorrent shared server(s), I would advise that he remove what was downloaded or risk re-infection (if we can determine some infection is present). This would include anything that was downloaded and stored on some removable media.

Next, I'd like to see the scan results for another analysis scanner that will take a little deeper look at things. Before you run this one, please disable the active protection component of your antivirus and antispyware programs by following the directions that apply Here.

Next, please download the free utility DDS from any of these locations...Here, Here...or Here.
Note - Some infections may prevent certain executable files from running on your computer. If one of these download locations results in a failed run of the utility, please try the next location until you find one that will work on your machine
Double click dds.scr to run the tool
  • When it completes, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.

edit added:
Please let me know what your friend decides with reference to the anti-virus programs and information provided about file sharing, when you post the requested logs. Thanks!

Thank you for the response and sorry for my massive delay in replying, things came up and I couldn't use my computer.

The connection problem seems to have gone and we still can't pin down what caused it. Since the problem's stopped, I can't convince him to follow your advice, because he thinks there's nothing wrong and can't be bothered. I'll keep trying to get him to do it, but I think it's probably a lost cause for now.

If I can get him to follow your advice soon I'll post the results, thanks for your help.
