I just finished cleaning my computer of malwear, but now my internet has been running slowly. (I expecially notice it in online games but it is also evident just surfing the web). Any help would be much appreciated.


heres the link to where i cleaned my computer, it has all my logs in progression so maybe i did something i wasnt supposed to.

Hello Zoltain,

Download winsockfix here.
There you can also read about it. And please let it make an back-up first and then click on fix.

Ok something went terribly wrong, i used winsockfix. When i tried to backup it had errors beacking up. Then i didnt think much of it and hit fixed.... Then it asked me to restart my comp so i hit ok. Now it wont start up, just goes to the screen as if u hit f8 and if u click start regularly it just turns off. I can only start in safe mode.

Try this: Go to Start->Run and type in sfc /scannow (don't forget the space between sfc and /scannow) and hit OK. Let it scan. If it finds any files missing/corrupted, it may ask for the Windows CD.

I am happy, your computer starts up correctly, now your internet is still slow, I think the source of the problem isn't your computer. What kind of connection do you have? (cable, (a)dsl, dial-up)

Well when the computer is your problem, I don't know what the source of your problem might be. I thought that maybe Zonealarm slowed down your connection. But if you have another computer, can you connect it to your router? If the connection is also slow we know it is not your computer which is the problem and if the
connection is faster, then we know your computer is the problem.

I am sorry, but at this moment I have no idea what I can do to resolve your problem. All the things I know what is able to repair an internetproblem in a computer did we already tried or will not help. Maybe another person will help you further. When I found something that can help you I will post it.
