Loading web pages, downloads, and video streaming are REAL slow.

First let me say that I just joined this site a few minutes ago so if this is in the wrong forum, please let me know. Anyways, I have a laptop: Toshiba M115-S3154. A few months ago, everything ran smoothly. Pages loaded relatively fast, downloads were no problem, and videos were loading lightning quick. Then while I was experimenting with console emulators, I got infected with the trojan.vundo virus. That was havoc enough. I went online and someone walked me through removing it. Now that it is gone, efficiency has taken a hit, HARD. Web pages take three times as long to load, simple downloads like an mp3 file are transferring not in kbps but bps, and the only way I can stream videos is pausing them and waiting for them to load, but it takes almost a whole day to load like a five minute YouTube video. I need to know whats going on here so I can get back up to speed. Do I still have a virus or what can I do to bring it back to the way it used to run before the trojan? I think its already stated somewhere but I'm running Windows XP Media Center Edition SP3. System stats include 1.60GHz, 798MHz and 504 MB of RAM. Programs used to remove trojan include NAV, Spysweeper, ATF Cleaner, ComboFix, CCleaner, HijackThis, and Hitman Pro 3.5. Only programs left on now are spysweeper, hijack this, and hitman pro 3.5. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.
