Hi there,

My internet is actually quite decent. Its download speed is at 18 Mbps. Browsing on chrome is fast and easy. However, around 3-4 months ago, I downloaded a virus which sends ads on my browser. So, I used Malware bytes to remove them. After removing them, I realize that my download speed (as in downloading a file, not browsing) goes down a lot. 170 MB takes 10 minutes to download! When I went to speedtest.com, I found out that my internet speed is still 18Mbps. Browsing is still fine as I said before. There's no more ads, but the download speed decrease a lot. This happens for all browsers. Please help me.
