I have ESET NOD 32, and Malwarebytes. I regular check for av with these programs. The past 3 days or so, I have had some issues with videos such as You Tube being slow, and rebuffering. Not terribly bad, but bad enough. This evening I tried to watch Netflix, and it was also buffering enough to bug me, when I tried to watch a movie. I decided to do a internet speed test, to see what my download speed was. It was very slow. I called my ISP and talked with their tech. She did some checking with my filter off the modem, and I still had slow speeds. Then she had me to put the computer in safe mode, and then run the internet speed test again. This time it came up to a tolerable level, but barely within the lower end of what speed I should be getting. So at that point, she said it must be a virus, and she could connect me to a tech paid service to handle the issue. I said not at this point. So I ran a scan first with ESET NOD 32, and it showed nothing. Then I ran one with Malwarebytes, it also showed nothing. I have noticed that Carbonite has been backing up like crazy. I had something like 1500 files to be backed up. Now it is about 900 left to go. I had paused it to update my Tweaking Registry Backup program. I went to unpause it, and saw it was already running. Strange. Maybe I just thought I hit pause. Regardless, it is backing up frantically to Carbonite. It should not be that far behind in files though. So can anyone tell me what else I can do, to find out what is going on with the slow download problem? It must be a virus, according to the tech. I was going to do an online scan at Kaspersky, but I see they don't have that anymore. I downloaded Malwarebytes Anti Rootkit, just to see if it will find anything. It also shows no virus/malware. Thoughts?
