Whats up guys.

I'm having a serious issue on this laptop :

Yesterday, everything was fine and running smoothly. Today, first I started having issues with flash based web content like Pandora and Twitch. This turned out to be a bigger issues.

I'll save the details for later. Right now I'm not able to download or update anything. Something is curbing and stopping my downloads. It also stops the installation of windows security updates.

 

The programs I have installed are a part of my standard list for fresh installs and are kept on a separate USB drive. The issue started before the new install.

 

What I've done so far:

Tested the network on a secondary laptop
Reformatted
Reinstalled windows
Used an entirely different harddrive

 

Its some sort of infection because it doesn't happen immediately after a fresh install. It happens about 10 minutes after I start up.

What do I do?

 

Programs used:

Skype
Avast
7zip
Steam
Malwarebytes
Bitdefender
Tixati torrenter
Revo Unistaller

And the rest are the official drivers from the website itself (iBuyPower)

Let me know if all went well.
