I downloaded avast anti virus, and I noticed in my network and sharing center it came up hitronhub.com as my internet access. I never had that in there before. It always said like network 2. Did something get in my system when I downloaded the program?????? Was I hacked or does it have something to do with avast?

Who is your ISP?

 

What model modem do you have?

oh crap! my modem is Hitron! It just never showed that before.It always said network 2 or 3 I thought somebody hacked into my computer because I was having some issues with my antivirus program. Never know which antivirus to use.    I'm not too computer literate!!! So it's okay because it's my modem???

It should be. Could be a firmware update on the modem, or a OS or driver update caused the change. The network name tends to be arbitrary on a home network.
If you're still in doubt, run an AV scan just to be sure.
