Recently I have noticing that my connection to CS:GO severs in the NorthEast have been getting worse and worse so I have done pretty much everything up until my only two options were to Call my ISP or Scan with Malwarebytes. My results came back saying that I had malware on my computer called "Hijack.host" and I looked into what it did and It could be the reason why it's causing me connection issues because it reroutes traffic or something around that. Anyways I need help removing it and everytime I've attempted to remove it It would come back after restarting my computer and as crazy as this sounds it multiplies. What I mean by that is the first time I scanned it, Malwarebytes came back with the results of "Hijack.host" four times. As of today when I'm writting this It comes up with the result of "Hijack.host" 27 times. Can anyone help me I'm at a loss for ideas and No one I know can help me.


P.S If I have done so correctly because this is my first time posting on this site I should have uploaded my results with the date on it.
