    Hi,
    a few weeks ago, my desktop computer, which remains off 5 days a week randomly, started to show extremely slow speeds in browsers. On both Chrome and Firefox, pages will take minutes to load and when it does load, the page is stripped to bare text and maybe some pictures. Any other program which connects to the internet, such as online games and MSN are fine and have no problems. I've tried clearing cache, restarting, and scanning for spyware with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and although it found some spyware and trojans, it was nothing new as my desktop had already been long infected. Is there anything else I should try? Should I just post a HJT log anyways?
    Thanks

    Please click HERE to download and install HijackThis.

    Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

    The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

    IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything
