HJT Log - Computer send / received in the 100s of millions? Zombie PC?
My internet provider (Charter) installed a new modem which includes 2 land line jacks in it and one Ethernet port. Device: Arris TM902
I plugged in an old Linksys Wireless router I have since Charter did not have a wireless option in one device for internet and phone.
Device: Linksys Router WRTS4G ver 1.1
2 PCs connected.
For 2 hours prior to this setup, I tried regular routers, plugging directly into the modem with one pc, other pc, etc etc with out 100% success in getting all devices working and able to connect. Eventually I somehow connected both PCs with the above wireless router.
With this my PC lagged horribly randomly or worked very fast randomly and eventually I made phone calls as. Charter blamed Linksys.
Linksys troubleshooted me right away and found " a " problem but offered no solution (unless I paid up front XYZ money) and that is why I am here now.
He did a few ping configs and monitored my system when his final conclusion was that my system might be hijacked. This was creating the lag and connection issues for XYZ devices. At the time I was sending and receiving a few million bytes.
Now today after trying to verify if I was on a wired or wireless connection I changed some setting around and performance has reduced drastically and web pages wont load at all randomly for 30 mins. Sure enough my send/receive was now running in the hundreds of millions.
So Is the Linksys tech correct, fix my computer and my internet will work just fine? I am ready to reformat if it is the easier option. I followed a guide that lead me here and followed several steps plus a few of my own. CC cleaner, MSE, MSS, Avast, S&D and so on found pretty much nothing, zero on all except ESTE Scan, 4 files for something babylon.xyz (dont remember the extension) however, I am pretty sure those are apple/itunes files that remained after an uninstall.
Here is the log:
