Preferred Solution: Internet going so slow? Dunno if its malware though?!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to Majorgeeks! Linzi

If you suspect Malware as the issue to your slow PC, then the below is what we will need you to run to allow the malware folk to see if malware is indeed the cause of your slow PC.

Please follow our standard cleaning procedures which are necessary for us to provide you support. Also there are steps included for installing, running, and posting HijackThis logs as attachments.

Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support
Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.

After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below link to properly use HijackThis and attach a log:
Downloading, Installing, and Running HijackThis

Make sure you also rename HijackThis.exe as suggested in the procedures. Use analyse.exe for the new name. This is very important due to some new infections going around.





When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
CounterSpy
AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis

NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!

Hi Guys, please bear with me if I've posted this wrong I'm new to your forum. I have a Windows xp based system and using IE6 I went to shut down last night , AVG warned me It had detected a trojan. My machine is now running slow and AVG is not showing in the task bar and I can't activate it. There are all sorts of exe. files running in the task manager and some sort of programme called system security has installed itself and keeps telling me I have malware etc. and I need to buy it to remove them. Please help ?

Regards

Hiya all
The computer has gone really slow. I think there are programs running that shouldn't be, but I am not really sure what to do next just in case I make things worse. I think I need your help.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi there, I'm new to these forums so I'm not too sure where to post this but I have been having problems with my Internet, I'll try to explain as fully as I can... This problem started on Thursday when i tried accessing my E-Mail on Yahoo! at first when I went to www.yahoo.com I thought the site looked weird, mostly because all the .gif pictures weren't showing up (Image 1) I somewhat ignored the issue (not assuming it was one at the time...) and went to my mail, I tried logging in and nothing happened... and nothing happened... and nothing happened. All that would show up was a blank page and load bar at the bottom wasn't moving (Image 2) . I just assumed that they were probably doing maintenace on the website and figured that I would try again later. I didn't try accessing my e-mail again until Friday when the exact same thing happened to me again, still not assuming that anything was really wrong I just went online and visited another website that I go to often (Yahoo! being probably the most viewed site on my computer), once there I noticed that the website had similar issues like Yahoo! was (Image 3). When I noticed this I began thinking it would really be a problem... I looked online everywhere for common issues but couldn't find anything, I tried opening the websites in a different web browser (Internet Explorer) and the same issue occurred, then I assumed that something was just wrong with my browser bringing up .gif files so I ran a search and found .gifs that worked...

Answer:[SOLVED] dunno... Problems with Internet?

Hi Stryker, welcome to TSF.

Obviously the pages aren't loading correctly, maybe you need to tweak a few settings in Firefox. Yahoo over the years has never been the easiest of sites to access with Firefox, I know!

Which version of Yahoo webmail are you using? The classic or new one? Do you get direct access normally to your Yahoo webmail without the 'imcompatible browser' page? Or do you have to force open the webmail.

Did you check your Firefox Options? Specifically the Tools > Options > 'Content' tab and make sure the top four are ticked.

What version of Firefox are you using?

Dear every one,

I am "surely" a girl with no general or deep understanding about the TECH WORLD...hix....I have just bought a Netgear Wireless Router (Rangemax wireless router) but I cannot connect to the internet. The networking and sharing center have shown that I have connected LOCAL, not INTERNET. When I click on the Diagnose and Repairt, they said
"Security Policy Settings on this computer might be blocking the connection
Policy Provider: Windows Firewall
Filter Name: Query User

If the policy provider identified is Windows Firewall, click for information about adjusting Windows Firewall settings. If a different policy provider has been identified, check the provider's documentation on how to adjust the policy settings"

That's wat it says. However, I have gone to Windows Firewall and turn it on, but I don't know which one to tick or untick in the Exception list and wat needs to be done next...Hix..Please help me in these guys!!!

I really need the Internet ASAP for searching jobs and emergency stuffs. Thanks a lot for your time and help!
 

Answer:A dunno-tech girl needs help on: window firewall setting and internet connection

I would switch the firewall off completely. If it's XP, simply go to:

Start>Run, and type in firewall.cpl

If it's Vista, go to:

Start>Control Panel, set it to Classic View (an option to the left) and find Windows Firewall, then switch off. No need to tick anything!

Is it an ADSL connection that you have? Have you configured your router with your ISP settings? If the connection is getting Local Only it probably means that your router isn't connected to the internet. Open Internet Explorer (or any other browser) and type in 192.168.0.1 in the address bar. The username and password are 'admin' and 'password', to my knowledge; if not, look for a sticker on the side or underside of the router. Once in the settings, find the Setup Wizard and go through it, keeping your ISP settings handy.

I have run malwarebytes and SAS to no avail. I went to speedtest.net and some times I get speeds of 4mbps and others I get 1.3mbps. I am taking modem in for testing with the ISP. Can I use Ccleaner? what is next step?

Answer:Internet is slow- is this malware?

I get speeds of 4mbps << Hi -Yes this is a very slow reading for broadband, and if this has always been similar it is your Internet connection usually.My current Speed Test shows around 12 to 14mbps Downloads and this is only average by most standards.Please see what your ISP says first and we can look at it from there - It may be old copper wires in your telephone system (if you connect via phone lines)Thank You -

Hello, I have 2 computers on the same network. One I recently built as a gaming rig and does little more. I have installed very few extraneous utilities on it. The other is an older "work" computer - ie. most of my browsing, instant messanger, music, movies, etc goes on over there. And recently I have noticed significant slow downs on the work computer. I scaned with both spybot and adaware and removed all the malware those two found. A few restarts later I still have horribly slow internet on that computer. Here are 2 images from the speed test i ran on each at the same time.

Hey guys,

My laptop has recently started having problems with the internet running much slower than usual. Every time i attempt to google search and connect to a site, the bar at the bottom of the browser that shows the destination website keeps showing many random websites before finally reaching the destination site. For example, when i went to my google search and typed in bleeping computer, the bar at the bottom showed ad2.netshelter.net, ad.doubleclick.net, bleepstatic.com, adsfac.us, and numerous other fishy seeming addresses. It took me close to a full minute before the bleeping computer homepage finally loaded.

MY computer runs windows 7 home premium with service pack 1, and the default browser i use is firefox.

I ran MBAM which found and deleted 2 threats, which i thought might fix the problem, but that doesnt seem to be the case. Log is posted below.

I wonder if anyone can please advise me?

Basically I have removed malware and now my Internet is really slow. But I will start at the beginning and try to include as much detail as possible because I?m not sure exactly what has caused this problem?

I recently found my PC was getting unresponsive for no reason and half my anti-malware programs had stopped working (AVG, Spybot, etc.), and I couldn?t install new ones, so I decided to give my machine a serious overhaul and set about carefully following the guides in this forum.

First I cleaned up with CCleaner & installed SmartDefrag. Then I ran Combofix. Then I installed Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.

Then I installed all new antivirus & firewall. First, going on the recommendation here, I tried Comodo. But I found it seriously confusing to use. I was baffled by all the options; it never asked me anything; I couldn?t see what it was blocking or allowing. Frankly it seemed absolutely terrible compared to Sygate & AVG (which I?ve used for years).

After about a day I decided I hated it and instead Avira antivirus and Outpost firewall instead. They do seem better than Comodo, although I still don?t find them easy to use at all and I?m still seriously missing Sygate and AVG. Maybe it?s just what you?re used to? And maybe these programs are actually doing a better job behind the scenes? (I mention this because, as an aside, I would be very interested to hear people?s opinions on this:... Read more

I apparently picked up a nice malware infection the other night. Using Norton antivirus, which did not apparently pick this up or fix it. I've run Spybot, which found a number of problems associated with a Vundo infection, along with something called Smitfraud. Running and repairing with Spybot did not work. I then ran Malwarebytes anti-malware, which found the Vundo issues along with registry entry problems. Running and repairing with this program has not stopped the problem.

My Task Manager shows 100% CPU usage, along with a lot of processes running that I don't recognize. The generally range in size from 2K to 6K. Their names include:

hprblog.exe
ehmsas.exe
cogad.exe
jucheck.exe
ctfmon.exe

Plus some others. Below is my hijackthis log. My computer is a Gateway 820 GM, Pentium 4 3.0GHz running Windows XP. Thanks for any and all help that you can provide!

My computer was badly infected with all sorts of malware and spyware. I used MalawareBytes and Combo Force to remove them and apparently got rid of all annoying popups, DLL error messages, and than used System Mechanic to fix all Registry problems. AFter doing so my internet stopped working at all. I used WinsockxpFix to fix the DNS and it started working again. I downloaded and installed AVG Full Version. but since than my Internet is really slow. I have a 8MB broadband connection and Google takes a few seconds to open. Youtube doesnt load any videos at all. So yeah the speed is worst than Dialup.

Here's my HJT Log. Please have a look and advise me of a solution. I'll be very greatfull for all the help i can get. Thanks.

Hello,

About 1 week ago my system became infected. Main symptoms were random redirects when clicking google links to ads, and certain websites being blocked (especially malware removal software sites, and access to malware removal software updates). After following steps posted here (ran combofix), I believed I had successfully cleaned my computer. Malwarebytes finds no infections and the redirects have stopped. However, about a day later, my internet suddenly became VERY slow. I have tried just about everything (I am now connected through a LAN directly to my cable modem, and used LSPFix and removed all the entries, and then ran winsockxpfix. Every time I try something, I get back to normal speeds for a short period of time, but then it will go back to being VERY slow. I have restarted in safe mode with networking and the problem persists. I dont know what else to try. Help would be greatly appreciated!!

Attached is my initial malwarebytes logs, the combofix log (from when I removed the malware), the subsequent clean malwarebyes log, and the kaspersky log I ran last night.

I did not run combofix again, just the initial time which seemed to clear the problem.

Thanks!

Answer:Internet Very Slow After Malware Removed

Bump (and update)

After a system restart my computer was totally frozen and wouldnt even boot in safe mode. It would freeze at the line isapnp.sys. I followed instructions here:

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...5-408524ace776

and deleted a .sys file that had size 0, and have now been able to boot again. But I'm still left wondering what caused this to happen, and why it happened after all my scans said my system was clean. I am a bit concerned to put my computer back on my wifi, is there a risk I could infect other computers on my home network?

Hello there,
I followed your protocol for treating malware, attached are the logs from each of the programs. I'm having really slow internet connection on this desktop computer running Windows Vista, no problem on smartphones or on my laptop, and all systems are connecting through the same wireless router WRT54GL. Often, the computer will initially connect to some websites, slowly, then eventually it will disconnect from the internet entirely. I'm getting download speeds of 5-20kb/s on a cable connection, not right.
Thank you very much for your help.
 

Answer:Suspected Malware - Slow Internet

I am not finding any malware in your logs. This is not a malware issues. I suggest that you post in either the software or the networking forum.

Since you are not having any malware problems, it is time to do our final steps:
We recommend you keep Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for scanning/removal of malware. You can uninstall RogueKiller and HitManPro.
Go back to step 6 oof the READ ME and renable your Disk Emulation software with Defogger if you had disabled it.
Any other miscellaneous tools we may have had you install or download can be uninstalled and deleted.
If running Vista or Win 7, it is time to make sure you have reenabled UAC by double clicking on the C:\MGtools\enableUAC.reg file and allowing it to be added to the registry.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall HijackThis.
Goto the C:\MGtools folder and find the MGclean.bat file. Double click on this file to run this cleanup program that will remove files and folders
related to MGtools and some other items from our cleaning procedures.
After doing the above, you should work thru the below link:

Hello everybody and thanks in advance for your help. I'm Italian but I could not find an Italian Hijackthis log analysis forum. Everything started last christmas when I got the Italian police virus (basically a window that popped out everytime i turned on the pc, blocked windows, falsely accused me of crimes and wanted me to pay 100 euros to an account). I managed to remove it in a very naive way becauseI really need this computer for college. After this removal the virus deleted all the shortcuts in the programs folder (the one you go to from the start button) also everytime I search for something on google I get redirected to other sites. From 2 months or so my internet slowed down to 56k speed (actually the speedometer says I'm fine around 3000kbs) but internet usage is extremely slow. What should I do? I'm posting my hijackthis log.

Hello all,

I'd like to say first off that this community seems great!

Here's my situation:

My internet is running very slow in all browsers. Basically, anything that deals with using the Internet is slow. I'm positive that all the hardware is fine and my network setup is fine. All the other computers in my house are fine.
The internet runs at normal speeds using Safe Mode with Networking.
I have run full System Scans using AVG Internet Security 9.0 and SUPERAntiSpyware.
AVG picked up some Trojans and they all are in the Java Cache.
SUPERAntiSpyware picked up Trojan.Agent/Gen-5pace. I'm not sure what that is or how to remove it.
Both the scans are still running..

I have attached the 2 files from DDS.

Sorry if I am not providing the correct information needed to post a problem like this. I am new here. I am pretty intelligent with computers and such, however, this problem has just stumbled me.

Thanks in advance!

However, Windows defender has repeatedly alerted me to a Trojan (Remos.dz, I believe) on which I have repair on each occasion. I have also run Malwarebyte's software, and it has removed various threats.It's still very slow, however. I'm running a boot-up full virus scan at the moment to see if it uncovers anything.

Original thread here.

I have a very difficult to diagnose internet issue, and neither I nor my service provider can figure out the cause. Here are the symptoms:
After periods of use, the time it takes to access a webpage tends to spike abnormally high. If I'm in an online video game, pings will skyrocket; streamed videos will cease to load, etc. Sometimes I won't even be able to ping google.
This issue will affect all computers and other devices connected to my router, wired AND wireless, at the same time.
My service provider has replaced our router and the box outside, thoroughly examined wires, and even monitored the network on their end, and they believe the problem is with one or more of our computers, perhaps malware.
However, if it is malware, it has no other symptoms. No unusual slowness in anything besides internet connection, no error messages. Boots up quickly. Undetected by any antivirus program. It's bizarre.
I have an iPad as well, and if I disconect other computers and just use the iPad to connect, I don't seem to have the same issues.
Here are a couple of speedtest results during normal and downtime.

Our home has three laptops, one desktop, an iPad, two iPod touch, and a few smartphones (although I haven't connected mine to the home wifi recently because of the issues).
My computer is a Gateway P-78 laptop, running Windows 7 Service Pack 1. (64 bit processor)

Hi,

My computer is running abnormally slow and my internet will disconnect after the computer has been on for maybe 10 minutes. (all other computers work so it is not a connection related problem)

I have run AVG, MalwareBytes,SAS,aswMBR, and ESET and they aren't picking up anything. However, TDSSKiller will find a "suspiscious object" titled Rootkit.Win32.BackBoot.gen but fails to remove it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Trying to watch videos on YouTube, Facebook, or any news sites, etc., are completely unwatchable. There is audio and video, though the video lags far behind audio and never seems to catch up. It's pointless to try anymore.

General browsing is equally slow. Sites and links take forever to load. I think I have many viruses that are slowing everything down, including opening .exe files.

Answer:Internet really slow after removing Trojans and malware

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I'd also like to see the result of an Internet speed test.

I know there are many reasons for slowness, but broadband speed checks seem OK, but all websites are suddenly really slow to respond. I have run my Avast! Free scanner and Malwarebytes, both came up with nothing at all. Also used CCleaner.
 
Still, everything is much slower, sometimes pages fail to open the first time. So I thought maybe there is something that is in the system. Here is the dds file. 
 
If nothing strikes you as odd I might consider a re-install. PITA but might be about time.
 
Many thanks,

My internet is running slow on my desktop. I have a wireless router and all wireless devices(laptop, xbox) has good internet connection. But on my desktop internet is really slow. For any site to load I have to do a continues ping to the site. If not then download gets stuck after certain kilobytes. I tried with 3 different browsers, IE8-Crome-Firefox. Same results.

- I have AVG anit-virus Free. I did full scan no virus found.
- Ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware - found nothing.
- Ran spy-bot search and distroy - found nothing.

Then I found this site. I followed the first step. Was able to get the DDS.txt & Attach.txt. But was NOT able to get ark.txt, because gmer.exe would get stuck. when I run gmer.exe, it freezes my computer or restarts my computer. I have tried running gmer.exe both ways: 1st) with all checked except "IAT/EAT" & 2nd) with only "Sections" checked. Got same results -> Either it would freeze or restart my computer. Below is my DDS.txt. And attached in .zip is just Attach.txt.

Please help!! It is some form of Malware,spyware or virus because I had this issue before and previously Windows Malicious Remover detected and removed it. But now nothing is being detected. HELP!!!

Greeting, I'm using WIndows 7.
 
I got infected by malware hours ago from (what I think) utorrent which slowed down my computer and also my internet from 3mb to 1mb. After I have ran tdsskiller and adwcleaner the computer regained its normal speed removing some rootkits and adwares but the internet still stays slow. I used also malwarebytes anti-malware and tdsskiller again but it says that no malicious items were detected.  I ran more programs after that such as combofix, jrt to no avail. 
 
Now I just realized that I need to ask for help and not read previously locked topics and follow their instructions. SOS!

Hello BC,
I have a funny but serious malware problem. When watching Jersey Shore full episodes, usually the ads played in the player- But then on one of the episodes, when the video player went to advertisement, an advertisement "popped up" blackening the whole screen. I thought this was unusual since the ads usually had been playing embedded within the player. I (mistakenly) clicked the "X" to get out of it. Following this, an ad began to play within the player per usual.

After the embedded advertisement began to play, I immediately got malware on my computer. My bottom-left icons began to change, and my antivirus appeared hijacked because a message appearing from avast popped up alerting me that I had been infected with a "worm". I knew immediately that I had been infected with something, and that the message was originating from the 'worm'.

I immediately shut down my computer and restarted in safemode. I attempted to perform an avast virus scan and windows defender scan-nothing. I then restored my computer back to a restore point created a few days prior using the System Restore function. I then started up in safe mode and attempted to Uninstall the Firefox browser from which I had acquired the virus. Firefox would not uninstall itself from Add or Remove Programs so later on I manually deleted (most?) of the firefox files.

Now none of the virus scans performed online or downloaded have detected a thing. Advanced System Car... Read more

Answer:internet connection very slow since malware virus

I would bet that the malware is still active on your computer. The slow internet is probably just a symptom of the underlying problem.I recommend that you PM Budapest, and request that your first topic be reopened. That way we can check to see if you are still infected before taking any action towards fixing your slow internet.

Hi all,

For the past couple of weeks I've had an intermittent and slow internet connection on this computer. This problem has not occurred on other computers using the same LAN and net connection. Furthermore, when the connection has been rediculously slow on this computer it has been very fast on the other computer connected to the LAN and net.

I suspect the problem is due to malware, such as a virus or spyware. Please could I have assistance in removing any such programs.

My computer is Windows XP Home edition and has a broadband internet connection.

I hope someone can help.

Thank you.

Good Morning,
 
I am finally getting around to fixing a problem that has been going on for a while. After downloading and removing some unfortunate malware/virus a few major issues started to occur on my Windows 8.1 machine with 8GB ram and an i-5 processer and integrated graphics. 
 
1. All browser open very very slow. It takes a good 45 seconds for a new tab to open up, another minute to make it to any website (even www.google.com). Once they are open I can switch between tabs at a mostly normal pace
2. In the tile screen typing any search is slow. Not anywhere near as bad as the browsers, but it still should be quicker.
3. Google chrome doesn't allow me to install adblock through the app store. It says network failed.
4. I can't flush the dns on the computer. This is a new one for me. I tried fixing it this morning by making sure the DNS service was running and by checking the host files, but nothing worked. I still get “Could not flush the DNS Resolver Cache: Function failed during execution"
 
What have I tried so far?
 
1. Malwarebytes
2. CCleaner
3. Windows defender
4. Checking startup processes and running processes to check for obvious issues.
5. I have a hijackthis log, but haven't posted it yet.
6. Uninstalling the internet browser programs as completely as I can.
 
This computer should be waaaaaaaay faster than it's running. I have periodically sat down and tried to figure it out over the last couple of months and I am stuck.

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on, the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and ... Read more

Recently, I have a hard time loading each page on my Desktop Computer. I went to the speedtest.net to test the speed. It turns out that the speed goes down to 1.60 Mbps. (My service is 12 Mbps)I thought it would be the problem on the internet provider side so I opened up my laptop to check the speed. It reported that the speed is around 12 Mbps. I thought this was strange.I disconnected my Desktop Computer (It runs Windows 7 64-bit) from the internet and ran SpywareDoctor with Antivirus in "Intelli-Scan" mode. It found 300+ infections. It told me to restart so I did. I ran the scan again in the same mode but there is no infection. However, I am not sure whether my computer is not infected. I ran DDR and got the following log file. (I cannot run GMER because it says "C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified.")What should I do? What indicates that my computer is not infected?Thank you very muchDDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSX64 Run by thaipokecard at 9:16:28.90 on Mon 09/13/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.7600.16385 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_21Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 6.1.7600.0.1252.1.1033.18.6143.4255 [GMT -5:00]SP: SUPERAntiSpyware *disabled* (Updated) {222A897C-5018-402e-943F-7E7AC8560DA7}============== Running Processes ===============C:\Windows\system32\wininit.exeC:\Windows\system32\lsm.exeC:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k DcomLaunchC:\Window...

Hi,

My story starts with getting a black screen randomly upon login to windows XP 2 weeks ago. Once I chose the profile to log in as, I got the black screen - not always, but on random occasions and the only recourse was to unplug the computer & restart in safe mode and perform another restart. This black screen allowed my to move my mouse cursor on the black screen, but CTRL ALT DEL had no effect.
I ran CCCleaner first and fixed the suggested problems.
This did not fix the black screen problem.
I had been using AVG Free v9.
I had seen a suggestion to use Malwarebytes - installed this & although black screen has not recurred my internet connections are slower than dial up - I am paying for 3mb.
I noticed that AVG was not updating over 2-3 days, so I unistalled this and installed Avast! Free Antivirus
Avast informs me every 15 minutes that it has blocked a malware called fnpvnw.bak - it has placed it in a vault and no more action is required.

I also just installed Spybot search and Destroy to try to see if this would isolate my problem

Note that since I installed the Malwarebytes program above, I have rarely been able to use the internet. I was prevented from downloading any of the above programs from my home computer - had to download them onto a usb stick from another computer and install them on mine from the usb stick.

I can see other people have had similar problems but it looks like the best course of action is to post my HJT log here. I would greatly appreci... Read more

My laptop (Acer 5600) has had various problems for some time now. I believed that I had removed a previous virus but as the computer is running so slow and the internet links are re-directing me elsewhere it is clear that there is still a major problem.
I don't have a restore point as I have checked this previously and so assume that all I can do is a full system scan. I currently have AVG anti-virus and Ad-Aware, yet both don't complete a full scan.
Can anyone help before I bin the whole thing!

I have attached the requested files and the log is below. I hope this is all correct.

Thanks

Hi there,

I am new here and hope someone would be able to help me with my PC which is very slow when loading web page. It suddenly like this. Sometimes the page would freeze and I have to close it and open a new Firefox and then it would load ok. It always happen if I try to load another page from and existing page.

So I scanned with my AVG which detected some nasty but cleaned already. Next I scanned with Panda Activescan and reported back some additional virus which AVG didn't pick up, but I could clean it.

I tried to clean temp fiels using ATF-cleaner, after which it still the same.

Please find attached my HJT log and Panda Activescan file for your info.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

Firstly I'd just like to say well done on such a great site, it's helped many times in the past, and secondly thanks for anyone who helps me out with this problem.

Yesterday it was quite obvious my computer had been infected by something, namely some malware/spyware which re-directs my IE page, provides various popups suggesting I buy Spyware protection, gives a little yellow triangle with a ! in (in the taskbar), as well as various security warnings ("Security warning: New Variant...") etc. I'm aware this problem has been posted before.

Today, I was limited on time, and did as much of this site's suggested "5-Step Process" as time permitted. Also realising I should've waited for one of the analysts to look at my problem, instead I add/removed the programs I thought were messing it up as well as ran VundoFix and removed two files that way (1 could not be removed, even after rebooting and trying again...). To put a long(er) story short, after a reboot I managed to get rid of the popups but my computer and IE is running noticeably slow, and I feel that some sort of virus/malware/trojan/spyware etc. remains.

I'd really appreciate anyone taking a look at my HJT log below.

Many Thanks

My internet explorer was not connecting to the internet even though i have great internet connection and no firewall was blocking it at the time. Even when it did connect it ran extremely slow. Mozilla Firefox ran much better than Internet Explorer, but still was running very very slowly. I thought I had a virus or some spyware so i ran norton antivirus, as well as pc tools spyware doctor and it detected that i had some trojan viruses so i deleted them. Then i ran Ad Aware and Spybot and they detected that I had some malware so i also deleted that. Also, everytime I run Ad Aware it detects some tracking cookie file even though i delete it every single time. And sometimes there is a window that opens in Firefox about scanning my computer for malware and i have to exit the browser. Any help?

I believe i have a virus of some sort but it won't delete. Firefox is the only thing that goes slowly on my computer. Everything else runs fine. Any ideas why this is so and how i can stop this. When i open sites like google and youtube the pages load okay, but when i try to open pages like myspace and facebook it takes 10 plus minutes.

Hello,
 
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.  My browser (IE9) has been hijacked and so far I've been unable to get rid of the problem with AVG, Malwarebytes, AdAware, and Spybot.  Have run scans with all of these, and my internet access is still very slow and IE is randomly redirected to undesired pages.  Here is the log file from HijackThis.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you.

I've been getting a problem utilizing Firefox and even IE (which I prefer not to use). Basically, pages have been loading pretty slow recently. At first I thought it wasn't that unusual, but when playing games online (WoW specifically), I'm not getting any high ping or latency issues. I also don't get any slow down on downloads, which is puzzling me. I only have problems just going on the internet.

There are also moments when I have to re-enter an internet address multiple times. For example, if I were to enter "gmail.com" on the address bar, it won't load, but still say "Done" at the bottom as if it loaded a web page or something. I'm afraid I might have some keylogger or some malicious content. Should I start changing passwords for e-mail services and anything else that requires a password?

I tried running Ad-aware, Spybot, and Symantec to clear up any issues, but I still have the same problem.

I think our computer is stuffed up with conflicting programs and we also have an inexplicably slow internet connection. A while back we had a trojan and my husband downloaded various stuff to get rid of it but now isn't sure what he did. Google chrome hangs very easily, especially when we use Gmail so we are currently using Firefox.

I've put the Hijack file and 2 dds reports below, but the GMER app ran for several hours before crashing so I don't have that. Can try it again tonight - is it usual to take hours?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Internet slow because of Malware Possibly Darksma and Vundo here's my Deckard's Log

Please download VundoFix.exe (by Atribune) to your DesktopDouble-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.
Note: It is possible that VundoFix encountered a file it could not remove. In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button" when VundoFix appears upon rebooting. Run the Vudnofix at LEAST 2 times OR until you get a "No vundo found message"

Download Combofix to your desktop.
Doubleclick combofix.exe
Follow the prompts.
Don't click on the window while the fix is running, because that will cause your system to hang.

When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt.

Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt and Combofix log in a reply to this thread.

Hi all,
Well I described in details in the above fields what exactly happened and what I tried to do.

Right now I am on this pc, using MS edge, and I have internet and all seems fine. But all is not fine - clearly. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling chrome by the way. I reset browser settings several times and I have no extensions other than google's own (google docs, google sheets etc)
So I am wondering, how to fix this.
If I scan, every program says there is nothing on my pc. But If I use chrome, things just die (after quite some time). I'm considering just living w/o chrome but I mean - how can this not be fixable

Sorry for the long texts - I really searched this forum and tried all I could find. But I just can't solve this on my own it seems. Help is very appreciated.

From 28 April the internet has been running slow. ISP's  broadband specified low speed is 512 kbps. On occasion Speedtest records speeds as low as 110 kbps. Occasionally, it reaches 500 kbps. Sometimes Speedtest does not load. ISP assistance corrected the DNS twice over past two days. He said that the DNS had been reset. F-Secure online scanner installation stopped at 90 %. Eset online scanner reported that proxy settings were faulty. Adwcleaner reported corrupt installation several times. Malwarebytes did not update.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely. If there is anything that you do not understand kindly ask before proceeding. Perform everything in the correct order. Sometimes one step requires the previous one. If you have any problems while following my instructions, Stop there and tell me the exact nature of your problem.

If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed. Stay with me. I will give you some advice about prevention after the cleanup process.

Hi, i've recently been experiencing some issues with internet connectivity and a few other random problems that have been occurring with my computer that i believe are being caused by spyware or some sort of virus.
My system specs are - i am running windows XP professional, Service pack 3,
2.4 ghz quadcore pentium processor with 2 gigs of ram. I am on a wireless internet connection provided by comcast. Both the other computers (a powerbook and a desktop running on vista) don't have any problems. However my internet connection, although connected, is really really slow. takes about 5 minutes for any site to load up.

In addition to that, i couldnt get malwarebytes anti malware to start up. so i deleted it and tried to reinstall, but i cant even run the install file. Spybot S&D wont start either. I can access everything but the actual main window. I uninstalled and reinstalled this successfully but there were no changes.

Also, every time i start up my computer, i get a registry change message from spybot saying there is an added value to a macromedia folder in my local settings folder. i've been denying this change every time

Alright. so i wrote a fricking novel, but hopefully someone can provide me some answers. It would be MUCH appreciated. I have a few projects on hold at the moment that need to be finished by the end of the week

Hello,I have been experiencing some problems with my laptop which I think originated with an infection from something called "Malware.Trace"*** and I would greatly appreciate your help with this. Recently, I notice several strange things e.g.: 1.) when i run Superantispyware to remove the file identified as "Malware.Trace" it deletes it (and other adware) but then it (and the adware) reappears when I restart my laptop; 2.) I can't download additional security/anti-virus programs directly to my laptop b/c I keep getting a message that says the downloads are corrupted (so I downloaded from a different clean computer); 3.) I got a message that said "you may be infected with a file patching virus 'Virut' when I attempted to download and install ComboFix and the message also said: "The contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised" (FYI: I haven't run ComboFix); 4.) my internet searches are redirected to a "scour" website and to a yellowbook website; 5.) my Mcafee Security system doesn't seem to work correctly;6.) System Restore doesn't work and my restore points went missing and; 7.) my internet runs slowly.*** Superantispyware identified it as: Malware.Trace (x86) HKU\S-1-5-21-955259736-3114737296-2818959947-1001\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENTVERSION\WINLOGON#SHELL) I disabled the CD emulation programs using the defogger and then I ran the DDS and GMER.

Hello,

I'm running Windows XP (SP3), and I'm having some problems... using either Firefox or Internet Explorer, I am incapable of opening certain websites or applications... though these sites and applications are very peculiar. Note that I'm currently posting from a different computer.

First and foremost, every anti-virus and anti-spyware program on my computer does not load... I have Spybot, Avast, Ad-Aware, and other programs such as Smitfraudfix, HijackThis!, Malwarebyes. Attempting to execute them does nothing; they just never load. This occurs in both normal and safe mode.

Similarly, accessing anti-virus, anti-spyware, and even tech support sites (including this one) yields "Cannot connect to server" errors. If I try to access avast.com or something similar, I get the same error. Someone suggested I check my hosts file (/windows/system32/drivers/etc), and noticed that many sites were redirecting to 127.0.0.1. They suggested I delete all redirections except for localhost, which I did, though I backed up my copy of hosts elsewhere.

Anyway... outside disallowing access to certain sites, the internet in general runs incredibly slowly for certain sites. If I try to access something like GameFAQs (gamefaqs.com), it takes long to load; if I try to access something like my school's website and other parts of the site (mcgill.ca), it runs normally.

The problem seems to only occur for the administrators on the computer; both myself and my brother have t... Read more

Answer:Possible Malware, Hijacked or spyware Computer Is Slow Internet Speed Varies Dramati

Welcome to Majorgeeks!

There is no malware apparent in your HJT log. We do have cleaning procedures that should be followed before posting a HijackThis log. These procedures are documented in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support

It does not sound like malware but since HijackThis logs really do not show that much of the malware world, they only way to be sure would be for you to run ALL of the READ ME and then attach the requested logs.

You could just be having problems with Microsoft One Care! When did you install it and when did your problems begin.

Well I ordered some RAM off ebay. PC3200 512 X 2. One stick is fine, but with the other one I get this. This is the second one the guy sent me and I think he sent the exact same one back thinking I wouldn't notice. I tried a different slot on the board too - same thing. I tried having only one stick in there and it was fine, but when I swapped sticks into the same slot - boom. Grrr...

Question: dunno what to do

I'm at a crossroads here. On one hand I really want to have my computer built VERY soon as I only have 2 more parts to order, and on the other han dI really want WIn Vista since it will be the next step in innovation and be 64 bit, and be required by most games coming out in Jan and after (I think)

problem is that Vista doesn't some out till end of Jan, and I want this comp done by end of Dec. I was thinking about getting Win XP media center to maybe hold me over but I don't know. In a month I would just be shelling out another $200 for Vista so I would have wasted so much money. What should I do!!

Answer:dunno what to do

just get xp and use it, and don't get vista for a couple of years. i have yet to hear of any games that say they will be vista only. the only thing vista has over xp gaming wise id dx10, and the 1st vid card t support it just came out and is over 600usd. so unless you have the nvidia 8800, you won't even be seeing dx10 in use, even if you get a game that uses it (i don't believe any are out yet). after using vista rc1 for a while, i just went back to xp. for me vista didn't give enouph tweeking power over my system to get the most speed for my gaming. the os just simply doesn't allow for 100% user control over the os like xp is. vista is just too concerned about protecting you and its self.

Im really bad at this kind of stuff so hopefully someone can help.
All i know so far is that when i try to boot windows, it goes to the safe mode / last known good config screen. tried to load the last known good config and it didnt help. i was told that after a windows update was installed and computer was rebooted, it just wouldnt load windows. sorry for the lack of info, but i got nothin... im tempted to just reinstall windows.

anyone?
 

Answer:wat? i dunno

Hi Steve

Guessing it wont go into Safe Mode either and recycles back to same screen?

Could try a repair of windows and boot to OS CD.

Or as you say just bite bullet and go for clean install, but does the HD have data thats needed to be recovered first? if so I did a weird trick a while back, just one of those weird moments when a spark of genius jumps out and as I have Acronis True Image 2009 installed, and a rescuse CD created it booted to that and managed to be able to just Image the My Documents folders and other folders to portable HD, then formatted PC and installed Windows XP again, installed the 15day trial of Acronis 2009 (available from Majorgeeks) on that PC, plugged in the portable HD and managed to drill down into the Image and right click copy and pasted the folders to the desktop and then left the user to move them into the correct folders.

Dell Dimension C521 with XP Home loaded. Some time ago I installed a Linksys 2.4 GHz Wireless G PCI adapter with speed booster onto the motherboard, set it up properly and it worked fine.
Now I wish to connect a wired modem (Clearwire) for internet access, but XP is not recognizing the modem at all, only the wireless adapter
I have checked the ethernet connection on the computer, it's OK
No matter how many times I run the XP connection wizard, the modem is just not found
Did I somehow erase the program or driver that would recognize any modem ?
How do I get it back?
Thanks in advance !

Answer:dunno what I did, please help!

You should go to the homepage for the modem, and download the latest drivers. It sounds like you do not have the drivers installed.

Question: i dunno

This seems pretty easy but,this is what it does during installation.Should the spaces be removed along with the semi-colon or is this a normal config.Just seems a little odd to me..
C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\;C:\Python25;C:\progra~1\common~1\gtk\2.0\bin; ;C:\RUBY\BIN
 

Answer:i dunno

What you have is a Windows rendition of $PATH which delineates the various directories that are searched to find a command to be executed.

Spaces are ok for file names and directory names on Windows systems. So, I would say leave them as is.

To demonstrate, you can put an executable with a unique name, e.g. hello, in any one of the directories - i.e. separated by the ';' character in $PATH, then position your command window to your $HOME directory, and give the command:
$ hello
where hello is the executable name of the hello world program that just prints out the words: Hello, world!

I would then move the hello executable back to your home directory.

Unless your installation triggered an error message regarding $PATH - it is nothing to worry about.

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore. I tried this Hijackthis thing, and this is my log:

Hello there,As I've said in the topic title, I'm at my wits end with this computer and don't know what to do. I've redone it countless times, (god knows how many) even bought a new hard drive just recently... and still, it's messed up. I've never experienced anything like this though. It takes forever to start up in the first place mainly staying at the windows loading page for about 20 minutes then finally turning on. Then it takes forever again to start the programs. Most recently, when I got onto Youtube it skips every 2 seconds, and now, it's screwing up my actual music on the computer speeding it up and slowing it down (like a program is running at the same time causing it to skip like that). I've deleted all my caches (the ones that will delete anyway) all my temporary internet files. I dunno what to do, your help would be much appreciated. Also, for a while there my computer would freeze up every once in a while, programs freezing, the mouse freezing, the whole deal.EDIT: Also, I just remembered this. When I would sign on msn messenger sometimes it would close it out completely out of nowhere. I'd do the troubleshoot and then it says theres a problem with the keyports. So, then I try to disable my internet... freezes up, and when it finally disables. I go to connect it and all it says is connection failed. I have to reboot my computer just to restart msn.

Sorry for the bump, but it was 13 pages in and no reply.===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until ...

I dunno what is up. But whenever i am on a video chat with windows live (as of now, never before) ever now and then i here a computer like ping or a crackle. It sorta switches sounds all the time, but it isn't the person on the other side of the chat. It happens random, and when i close the webchat it stops.

I had gotten a blue screen before this started happening, something about windows had to shutdown to protect some file. However i don't remember anything else about the blue screen. My friend has no idea whats wrong, he had the same problem and dell had to come out and fix it. I don't have it under warranty anymore and we really don't have dell anywhere near us.


It would mean a lot if you were able to help me. Sorry i can't capture the ping sound, but think of pong. Sometimes it is higher pitched, others it is low. But it is really really strange.

Answer:I dunno any other way to describe..

If this helps at all, i believe i have found the error from the blue screen of death in event view. Couple minutes after this event it is a list of programs starting.

Question: Dunno. IP related?

My friend accesses his bank account from home using Firefox with no trouble. He comes to the shop and Chase makes him jump through hoops (call Chase, get security code) which takes a lot of time. We use google Chrome here. So I said I will download Firefox so you can get around that problem. My question is this: if he has Firefox at home and uses Firefox at the shop, wouldn't that change the IP, thus triggering the banks security settings? Does that mean he has to use the same computer at the same location all the time? Thanks

Answer:Dunno. IP related?

Not necessarily, some folks are assigned 'Dynamic' IP addresses by their IS Providers (A different IP address each time they connect, or reboot their router), which would mean the bank security would be on permanent alarm status.

Most banks just use login passwords - Mine has 2, an 8-digit number and a 5-digit number, entered on 2 separate pages. Also, my 'Mozilla Seamonkey' browser offers to remember any login details, I don't know whether Firefox has that facility or not.

The only thing to remember is that the shop-PC is set to NOT remember any login details (usually a tick-box on the login page) - If the home PC is accessed by your friend alone (or folks he trusts), then the 'Remember me' tick-box can be ticked (if available).

Greetings people of the Sevenforums community.

My computer is pretty old. It's been here since like 2006(7).
The only thing that has been replaced so far is the GFX Card because it died and nothing more..

But for a very long time now, like 12-8-2013 it has been excessively BSOD'ing. With different error types and I'm really clueless about what to do..

I got a nice list of minidumps zipped into a folder.
(Note: I didn't use the sevenforums tool on the PC, because it crashes before I even get to windows)

I'll attach the .zip.. hope anyone can be of help.

With a friendly greet,
Rimikumo

Answer:PC gets different BSOD's.. Dunno how to fix

Rimikumo, upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Also, Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

I have Windows XP Pro. upgraded from Windows Home. Its Medion MD40100 Notebook, Pentium 4. I reformated the Harddisk/copied everything on external Harddrive and upgraded to Windows XP Professional. Know my USB ports don't work, or do they?

I have a mouse and seperate keyboard attached through USB (i have 4 ports on the back of the laptop) and IF AND ONLY IF..they are connected on a reboot they work. If i unplug them after the setup is complete, they will not work again unless I shut off/ plug them in/ reboot. Then poof they work again. None of these ports seem to work after the start up.

My system will not boot with the external harddrive plugged in, and so thus will certainly not work after the start up. It doesn't turn on and doesn't appear in Device Manager or anywhere on the computer system. Windows XP does not even report: new hardware attached. Nothing.

any help or suggestions would be greatly apppreciated.

Answer:i dunno what to do anymore!

I should also note: If I need to buy something, i will, I just really need access to the external Harddrive as it has all my backup information. Thanks again.
