I've had my current computer[XP] for nearly a 1 1/2 years or so now... In January I encountered a so called 'deadly' virus, Virtumonde. I installed Spybot, CCleaner, and HijackThis. I'm pretty sure I got rid of the virus, although I am informed that it remains dormant in Reg files. I'm having problems with ctfmon.exe and rundll.32 or run32.dll. I have yet to find anything to remove these problems. I also noticed that my internect connections quality has not only slowed but has become less efficient. Every month or so I would have problems with Mozilla, but now it has become daily, everytime I attempt to go anywhere such as 'google.com' I see the error 'sever not found' or 'the connection was reset'. I used to download files at 12 kb/s now I'm lucky to get .5 kb/s. I'm wondering if these things are related issues. I have tweaked my firewall, I have mozilla added as an exception, I've removed most 'suspicious' things.
I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me what could be causing the internet to be so sporadic. I have not changed anything on my connection or modem properties, modem is set to not allow compression which is never higher than 5%. Any ideas on how to get my computer well again?
Thanks in Advance
