In Windows XP I have a problem with my internet connection.
Downloads move at only about 20/Kbs and then hang up and fail.
When I try to update software it fails to connect to the internet.
Programs connected to a network seem to disconnect and time out.

I ran Malwarebytes, ComboFix, HD Scan, Avast, AVG, etc.

Is there some other way to diagnose a problem like this?

You mean...aside from connectivity problems...everything is fine with your system?

No BSODs, no nuisances when doing anything other than connecting?

Yeah everything with my system is fine but my download speed went from 2mb/sec to 20kb/sec and downloads won't complete. There has been all kinds of network related problems for the last week.

This all started to happen after I downloaded and installed the Tor Browser Bundle. I uninstalled it but I was connecting to the Tor network and surfing the internet for a week when I started having these problems.

When I'm on mIRC I get a error: [10053] Software caused connection abort

It seems like a port is being blocked, I tried shutting off the Windows XP Firewall and I reset my network Winsock settings.

Oh, I figured it out. The laptop on the bridged connection was blocking ports with the router. I ran ComboFix on the laptop and my download speed went back from 30Kb's to 2mb/sec.
