Hey, I'll try cut this short.

Yesterday, I loaded my computer up as just another day of gaming and browsing the internet was due. However to my dismay I found that my internet was being EXTREMELY slow, as in, I couldn't even load 90% of webpages, only Facebook home page, and google search and a few websites from that.
After about half an hour of fiddling around with Drivers, deleting cookies, clearing temp folders, running virus scans and malaware software i almost gave up.
So i typed "Really slow internet can't load pages" into Google as a last resort to what looked like an inevitable Re-Format since i know it wasn't my connection and it was something that was on my computer, as my laptop worked perfectly.

I found your site amongst the many others, and I remember checking here for something before and I was directed towards your ComboCleaner. I thought, "Ah what the heck i might aswel try" Luckily your site was running and I managed to download it. Funny thing was that the download was running at over 600kb/s but no webpages were loading up, that's when i suspected SpyWare or something along those lines.

The CC Launched and I sat back for about 10 minutes before a message popped up, saying it had found a RootKit.ZeroAccess Residing inside my IP Address :| , No idea what the hell a Rootkit is, just searched it on Google and I thought i was quite computer literate!

Anyways after about 40 minutes of being sat there my computer restarted and hey presto, the internet is perfectly fine! So I just wanna say thanks since it's been a while since I've reformatted and theres alot! of game patches (About 50gb) that I don't have saved somewhere.

Cool beans <3

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
