    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.1 OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium , Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 2 Processor Count: 4 RAM: 2806 Mb Graphics Card: Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator HD, 1275 Mb Hard Drives: C: Total - 146426 MB, Free - 117863 MB; D: Total - 146427 MB, Free - 146333 MB; Motherboard: Acer Aspire 5741 V1.02, Base Board Serial Number Antivirus: AntiVir Desktop, Updated and Enabled Hi, I've recently got both broadband and my new laptop up and running. After a few days of everything working fine, it's gone to pot. Pages are randomly loading very, very slowly or not at all, though sometimes loading fine if I hit refresh. Further, any video will buffer fine, play for 30 - 120 seconds then stop, say it is buffering and refuse to play. Downloads will randomly be ok or extremely slow. I spent 4 days on the phone to the tech support for my broadband company. We've established that there is nothing wrong with my internet connection or wireless (we even tried going through all the channels) and speed tests are showing real download/speeds of around 8Mbps. My flatmate's internet is working no problem. I thought it could be a problem with firefox and the add-ins I have (NoScript, Cookie Monster, Unplug, McAfee Site Advisor), although everything is up to date and I had consistently cleared the cache. So I downloaded IE and used it 'clean': same result. Avira and Malwarebytes scans are showing nothing. Windows and PC Tools firewall are fully updated and hard drive is defragged. What's going on? Please help!

    I hope you're not running two firewalls at the same time?

    The same for antivirus applications...


    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 reply.

    IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything

    No, I'm not. I have Windows Firewall and Windows Defender turned off. Avira is the only antivirus I've downloaded and PC Tools firewall the only firewall I've downloaded.

    I got an error message when I ran Hijack This. It's not letting me copy it to post it.

    Here's the log file:

    Have you tried browsing after booting into Safe Mode with Networking? Any better?

    As for the error about the Hosts file, run HijackThis as Administrator or disable the UAC first.

    Sorry, think my first reply is lost at the start of that log file repost. Browsing is working completely fine in safe mode with networking. What next? Much appreciated

    You'll need to run a Clean Boot procedure to isolate a culprit.

    Thank you so much! The PC Tools firewall seems to have been causing it. I've uninstalled it (just through Control Panel>Progs and Features>Uninstall) and switched Windows Firewall back on. Do I need to do anything else? Should I just keep using Windows Firewall (and should I also switch on Windows Defender)?

    Maybe I should change 'intermediate' to 'beginner'... :eek:

    The Windows 7 Firewall is quite sufficient.

    Windows Defender is useless.

    Glad you go it fixed! (y)

    Thanks so much! That wasn't too complicated but I would never have sorted it by myself. Really good handholding.

    In the interests of not having to ask for help in the future, can I quickly list my security spec and ask if I need any gaps plugged?

    Currently running Avira (free version), Windows Firewall, latest version of Firefox with NoScript, Cookie Monster and McAfee SiteAdvisor plugins. Have Malwarebytes for malware scans. Don't use facebook or Adobe PDF reader (got CoolPDF instead).

    Thanks again

    I'd say you got it well covered with security. :)
