Posted 26 October 2014 - 03:48 PM

I am having issues with malware on my computer.  At first i always got advertisements, and my homepage always changed to trovi, and ran extremely slow.  After running malwarebytes, jrt, and adware removal tool, the would fins several things to delete and the computer would be fine afterwards...... for a few minutes.  Soon after it was the same thing over again and the anti malware programs would find the same things over again.
I installed avira and t has realtime protection, and like every 5 minutes it would block and quarantine the same processes.
For some reason now avira doesn't flag anymore, but every once ina  while my homepage for chrome changes to trovi again.  I have also noticed considerable lag when using online programs (between 200 and 600 ping) when my normal ping was around 100.  Also if playing an online game, not only does t have high ping, but sometimes i just outright disconnect for maybe a second or 2, or just don't receive any data from the server for a second or 2.  I know how my computer normally operates and this is highly unusual.  Also my fps varies widely, but is always around 50-40% of what it normally is.  Task manager shows no strange programs or cpu usage.  Tried using glasswire (a program that monitors network activity), and although it shows no strange programs using the network, i do notice that the "system" will connect to ip addresses in germany and china frequently (not sure if this is unusual or not).
Please help me with this issue.
Thank you in advance.
