I was using the internet on my Desktop computer and also fixing my friends laptop at the same time. I had the laptop connected via network cable to my router which is also connected to the PC for internet

Now all i was doing was a spyware scan on my friends laptop. No downloading or anything was involved, this scan was being performed while the laptop was still connected to my router

Now while this was happening, my PC's internet was so slow it was unusable. No idea why

I paused the scan and then it was fine. Disconnected the network cable, resumed the scan...

I wouldnt think a spyware scan would effect the use of my net in anyway what so ever?

Depends on the program, some can upload details of file scan for online analysis on the fly and depending on the speed of the internet in the first place it can slow the connection down.
