    i recently got a new laptop and it was working fine at first. after a day or so it had issues connecting to the internet..it would show that it was connected and secured but wouldnt connect to the internet.

    i would always have to either use command prompt (ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew) , resetting the router or turning off the wifi and turning it back on, but these only provide a temporary fix.

    i torrent stuff and i noticed the speeds and they have gotten quite slow.

    how can i fix this?

    It sounds like you've infected your new laptop.
