Hello,
My first post here. Good to see people helping people.

A couple of days ago, my cable internet connection slowed to a crawl.
I have run complete system anti-virus scan, and adaware scan, deleted all temporary files and cookies. I have disconnected my modem and internet connection and reconnected. Sometimes all is well for a short time, then slow loading pages again.

Offline activities seem to be just fine working with excel, word, etc. Even with my localhost server for developing scripts and webpages is okay. Just seems to be the internet connection.

I have a hijackthis log which I will post here for someone to look at, if you will.

My hard drive is quite full. It has been this full for quite a while and hasn't affected performance.

I did defrag just prior to this problem. Could this have been the cause? If so, does anyone have a suggestion for a solution?

Here is the log:

Hello Frank,

There is no sign of any malware in your log. You could disable programs that you do not need running all the time.

You could run the tests at PCPitStop and see if the test come up with anything.
