I seem to be having an odd issue I'm not finding any information on. Likely I just don't know where to look, but so far nothing has resembled any of what I'm dealing with beyond the MyWebSearch malware aspect. All communication is currently through a laptop I also have. Task Manager claims CPU in use approximately 50% or so, mild increases and decreases but it averages to a lovely half. The difficulty I am having is while it claims usage, it also does NOT indicate any running process that is drawing the power. I've checked several times over the course of a week. So far I have run a fully updated Microsoft Security Essentials scan, SDFix, CHKDSK, pagefile reset/defrag, and the entire 8-step guide for viruses/spyware/malware. Have somewhat regularly used Advanced WindowsCare as well, but not in the duration of this issue. Due to the lack of internet success Malwarebyte could not be updated beyond the install file updated last at 4/29/2010 I believe. Still blasted over 40 items, most of which were mywebsearch. I am including the following logs: hijackthis, gmer, DDS/Attach, mbam (both a quick and a full scan found something, a third scan was clean, quick log attached, can only attach 5 files). To the internet problems, likely tied to the malware as I believe it took place around a similar time. I have no problems whatsoever connecting to the Wireless LAN or to the internet. The problem is specifically I am almost totally unable to transfer any data through said connection. Occasionally it will slow down and I get reasonable data transfer rates, other times bad rates. Generally it has all been growing slowly worse over the past few weeks. Have had no transfer windows long enough to even get 5mb for almost two days. Appeared to have a pattern of doing better on initial startup...or as long as something was transferring....or late at night. All possible patterns have been disproved by randomness and is likely just perception. Been completely locked up since yesterday now with no change. Last time I had a strange problem I actually needed assistance with, I stumped Tier II tech support. That had been an issue with City of Heroes and not my computer though, if I recall it right. Help is greatly appreciated. Have enough problems right now without fighting with my computer.
