Finally it seems I managed to get rid of some nasty malware I apparently had

Been using my computer with no problems since 9AM today, it's 12PM now.
I'm telling you, these issues only happen when the internet slows down, it's as if there's a buffer overflow or something, like something is DDOSing me when the connection slows down.

If I'm not connected to the internet or the connection works my system operates flawlessly.
This is why i refuse to do a reformat

I also scanned my system with all my anti malware tools and nothing turned up, but it was the same last night and I'm sure that as soon as that thing happens again it'll start doing the same.


the realreason is its bloated and hardware was damaged by the virus


which part of the hardware?
The computer can work for hours on end without an internet connection perfectly, I know because i did thorough testing and it works beautifully.

So once you add a Internet connection it slows the PC down?

Open your Resource Monitor, plug in the internet and see what exactly causes the performance hit.

What scares me about viruses are the keylogger and ****

The ones that mess up your computer are whatever... I guess... as long as they don't permanently **** up your hardware.

It's basically only when the internet slows down or dies but programs still look for a connection.
There are no spikes in CPU or memory usage, but yesterday I did notice a HUGE spike in the local area connection, maybe it happened because things were all lagged up, maybe that's what caused the lag, but the chart thingie which is normally below the 0.50% mark for normal usage suddenly spiked up to almost the 1% mark.
I have 16GB RAM and most of it is free.

It's a very strange situation.
The more I think about it, the more it looks like abnormal data is coming through the ethernet cord or modem which is causing the system to lag, like a DDOS attack or something.

For example, I just booted my computer up with the ethernet cable plugged in and it's working like a charm, no lag, no nothing, but the connection is fine.
I was able to start Chrome immediately and start using my system normally as alaways when the connection is good.

So your windows explorer randomly lags about, but only when you have an active network connection? Do you have any network attached storage devices, network locations, homegroup connections or mapped drives? Maybe it's timing out on populating the network tab in explorer.

I don't have any of that, but thanks for the tip
I just noticed that all this sharing stuff is set to on

I just set them all to off

None of my folders are set to sharing as far as I know
and I disconnect my USB hard drives unless I need them

This is weird
This morning, the first thing I did was disable BitDefender's auto update
I did download an update earlier by clicking the download update button and had no problems, but just now I turned the auto update back on and first thing that happened was a very strange slowdown, even my mouse pointer moved slower than normal, which is no good when a cursor does that and BitDefender was stuck on Downloading Update without downloading anything.
I pulled the Ethernet cord out and everything resumed working normally.

I didn't have a single problem all day
and it started lagging now the moment I turned auto update on

This but to a lesser extend used to happen with AVAST's auto updater as well.

Could a simple auto update cause so much trouble for a system like mine?
16GB RAM
i7 3820
GTX680 2GB
SSD 128GB Verbatim

Now everything is back to normal and my system works flawlessly one again

edit: Something similar happens when Windows has new updates, the first moment it detects them things tend to be a tad more laggy, but nowhere near as bad as what I've been experiencing with this stuff.

I'm thinking it could be a combination of a bunch of things
but now that my system seems to be clean, and I'm 100% sure it's some sort of a netwrok issue or something

After the last lag I disabled automatic update on BitDefender again and I've been scanning and running tests as I work in photoshop, fairly complex projects mind you and haven't had any problems.

This either means my connection is stable and has no issues.
Or the auto update function somehow, for some reason messes my connection and windows up enough to make explorer hang and lag

I'm really not sure what to make of this.
I just clicked the download update button in BitDefender and had no problems

I don't know if I should re-enable auto update again now to see if it's going to mess up, or wait it out a few days and see how things go with disabled auto update.
