Yea, so I recently got high speed internet with a cable modem and every couple of minutes the connection slows way down or disconnects for a couple of seconds, then it becomes normal then slows down, this is happening since I got it, does anyone know what the problem might be? I have hooked my computer up to other peoples modems and it works fine, just fine. I talked to my isp tech support and they said the modem is showing signs of spyeware, I have run a mess of scans and nothing show up any help would be much appreciated.

Download Hijack This. After a fresh reboot of your system, run the Hijack This program. Post the entire log in this thread. It will help folks determine what may be wrong with your system.

Also, be aware that if you are on cable, you share the total bandwidth with ALL your neighborhood, unlike DSL where you have a dedicated line. What this means is that during peak times (after school on weekdays, etc) the cable may become congested. I've been at some folks' houses before when their cable slowed down to dial-up speeds.

Anyway, post your log and let's see what's going on...

Ok, I'll do that, I don't think that is from the neighbors because it is always happening, even at like 3:00 in the morning and it isn't a constant slowness, it slows down, then becomes normal for like 10 minutes then slows down for a minute and this keeps repeating.

No! Don't do anything for now. This log gives folks here more information on how to diagnose your troubles. You do seem to have some spyware/malware on your system. And I also notice you're running two realtime anti-virus programs at the same time (McAfee and AVG). This is NOT a good idea. Two AVs on one system often cause slowdowns and system lock-ups.

Anyway, you need to have one of the more experienced HJT log analysts come by here and give your log a looksee.

Stay tuned...

I don't see any malware at all in the log, but I do see that you have both McaFee and AVG running. You should never run two antiviruses at the same time. They will conflict with each other and cause all kinds of problems. Pick which one you want and uninstall the other.

Hey Flrman1... Thanks for popping in here. I was referring to SecuROM. I've run across differing opinions about that particular application. You'd know better than I, though. :)

Don't give up hope. There are other possibilities. I don't think you need a new computer.

- The modem provided by the cable company could be bad.

- The line into the house installed by the cable company could be bad.

...numerous possibilities.

Since you stated that you've hooked your system up at other folks' houses and it works, that pretty much tells us you have a problem with the cable or the modem. If I were you, I'd contact the cable provider again and raise hell. Squeaky wheel gets the grease. I had a similar problem with my brother's system. It turned out to be a faulty connector installed by the cable guy who ran the wiring into my brother's house... drove us nuts for two weeks trying to figure it out.

SUCKS when things don't work right. :(
