my pc is port scanning my dad's pc and presumably the others on my home network. Port scans coming from my ip are sent out in small amounts constantly/sporadically or in large amounts every 10 minutes. It seems to vary. along with this while playing games (CS:GO mainly) my ping can be 30-50 for the whole session (sometimes 4-5 hours), sometimes it will be 100+ and even exceed 500, and sometimes i will just disconnect from the internet for atleast 25 seconds. I don't remember when it started but it has been going on for a while and i decided to try and fix it now. when idle i have seen rainmeter show upload of 300-800b/s and less frequently 1-5 Kb/s


[SIDENOTE:] Firefox has been infected with a search hijacker called protectedio and i havent gotten aroung to removing that either.

[SIDENOTE 2:] we recently switched to vivint's internet service and it does well consistantly on other family pc's but not mine. (it was happening before vivint's internet)

[SIDENOTE 3:] It was much worse before i installed Norton security suite.(it used to say it was blocking svchost.exe access to Norton files or WBEM\WMIPRVSE.EXE from accessing Norton process data. It no longer does this)



These were all the details i could think of adding. i you need more please ask.
