Like many others I have this little bugger on my computer. I'm usually quite careful and capable of removing the viruses or disabling them in my own way with the help of a few little programs I've accumulated over the years.

So far the forwarding trojan really did nothing to deter me or my work. So all I did was add the address to my hosts file, which stopped the connection. It'd still do the forwarding, but it wasn't too much of a concern.

Until recently that is. I dunno if it's the same trojan or not, but my connection has taken a large dip in consistent bandwidth availability in the form of packet loss. This could be attributed to many things so of course I began some simple troubleshooting checks like checking the router connections, checking direct connections to the modem, swapping direct cable for wireless, and wireless for direct cable.

I use TCPView coupled with Bandwidth Monitor to watch for any unnecessary connections, but many times the connections are system oriented so it's hard to tell if something's bad or not. The nature of the packet loss starts with 2-4% and increases with each hop until there's a failure to connect.

Alot of times it's a hit or miss with my connection, and that's a big no-no to avid online gamers and netflix users.

Right. Well, that's my situation. Now here's some stuff to help aid you aid me. Thanks in advance!
