    I have some seriously bad malware that is slowing down my internet. Whenever I open IE or firefox, a LOT of connections show up in netstat. I'm at my wits end trying to get rid of this stuff. I have ran Spybot, Ad-aware and Defender.

    That appears to be the 64 bit version of windows 2003

    none of the usual tools run on a 64 bit version

    we can try this but I won't guarantee it will run

    Download OTScanIt.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt on your desktop.
    1. Close any open browsers.
    2. If your Real protection or Antivirus intervenes with OTScanIt, allow it to run.
    3. Open the OTScanit folder and double-click on OTScanit.exe to start the program.
    4. Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
    5. The program will be scanning huge amounts of data so depending on your system it could take a long time to complete. Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
    6. When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
    7. Save that notepad file
    If the log is too large to post, use the Reply button, scroll down to the attachments section and attach the notepad file here.

    The scan result is below, but if it makes a difference my OS is Windows XP Pro x64 SP2. I'm not sure why it says Server 2003 on all these scans. Antivir, Spybot, and Ad-Aware 2007 did work on this OS too, they just couldn't find anything.

    I'm beginning to think it might just be a problem with Firefox, as the mass connections only show up when Firefox is open (although there are 100+ connections even when the page is idle, as I have disabled the XP built-in TCP half-open limit).

    there may or may not be something wrong but we can't tell


    NO antimalware program runs properly on ANY 64 bit version of windows and everything shows yioua s using windows 2003 not XP SP2 but that might be a misread by teh software as they get blocked from important parts of windows

    The logs show most running files missing & they are there but the tools are blocked from seeing them by 64 bit protections

    If you have disabled the tcp limits then you are on your own as the only reason for doing that is to get more downloads from scummy P2P programs
