Alright, so, the last couple of days my internet has been really slow. When I would turn on this computer, the internet would become very slow, almost non-existent. When the computer was off, however, the internet would be just fine. So I figured this meant a problem with the computer. I figured it was some kind of virus, so I ran McAfee scan, and I didn't find anything. I searched somewhat, and I found that my symptoms match those of the Zeroaccess rootkit. So I got Malwarebytes. I ran Malwarebytes, it found a bunch of Zeroaccesses, and it also found a bunch of Dropper trojans. I quarantined and deleted them, and the internet has been just fine since then. However, every time I turn on the computer, Malwarebytes tells me (usually twice) that Zeroaccess is trying to run and Malwarebytes blocks it. This also happens occasionally and seemingly randomly while I'm in the middle of my session. I ran another scan, and sure enough, there were some more Zeroaccesses and Droppers. I did several scans since then, and every time I find at least 1 malware file. So, what bothers me is the fact that, even though the malware seems to be doing nothing to my computer or internet anymore, they are still on my computer, and seemingly returning since I keep deleting them.
So, my question is, is there a way to completely and permanently remove these two pains in the neck, and how would I do that?
EDIT: I just noticed that when I have my internet off, the rootkit doesn't appear on my computer until I turn back on the internet.
