Hi, I kindof feel bad asking people to give me their time to help me with this problem, before I posted I did my own research and would have tried to fix it on my own but seems that someone with more knoweldge needs to look at the results of different tests being done so...Im hoping someone here can help.

 

Every computer in my house is getting about 45mbs download, except mine, which gets about 5mbs. Im guessing I am infected with something.  I do have a couple programs installed that I got from torrent (Photoshop, Acrobat, and a couple others).  In retrospect was probably a bad idea.  

 

I am running windows 8.1

 

I have Webroot Antivirus which is always running.

 

I would really appreciate any help.  Many thanks,

 

Jordan

NEVERMIND!  Found the issue....good to know for other people...
 
I was curious why when i did a system checkit showed my antivirus as Panda, when in fact I thought I had uninstalled that a while ago when I changed antivirus to Webroot.  I double checked and seems I had not uninstalled it before.  I uninstalled it, restarted the computer, ran a speedtest again and now Im up to par.  
 
Strange, I thought Panda was supposed to be pretty reputable.

You're lucky your computer didn't crash with 2 antivirus solutions running.

Anyway, congrats on finding your own solution!
