Hello,

A couple of times in the last few days my internet speed has gone WAY down. I mean like .02 Mbps down and barely anything up, where I should be getting 9 Mbps down and .5 up.

The first time, I was on my wireless network, so I tried unplugging everything and pluggin back in, but it didn't work. I connected directly to the modem. Worked fine, so I ditched the wireless and am currently wired.

Today had the same issue all of a sudden and noticed that Mozy was backing up. Though it usually doesn't slow things that much, I stopped the backup but the problem didn't go away. I've been checking my Processes and can't tell if anything is acting strange.

Is this a symptom of a virus or malware? A restart seems to have fixed things for now. Is there any program that anyone could recommend that would let me monitor what programs are using my network at a given time?

Thank you!

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HijackThis 2.0.2.

Close all open windows first, then install it in its default location: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.

Start it, then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished and the log file appears, save it.

Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.
