Slow/No Connections to Certain Websites

Unread postby jess07 » March 27th, 2010, 4:18 pm

For the last two days, I've been having trouble connecting to certain websites. Either the pages won't load at all, and I receive error messages, or they load very slowly with "Connecting to XYZ" messages in the status bar. This happens in both Firefox 3.6.2 and IE 7. I'm on a Windows XP machine. I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials as my main virus protection, along with ThreatFire, and I've done scans with MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware with no indication of what's causing the problem.

Here are my HijackThis logs; thank you so much for any assistance you can provide!

Hello and Welcome to Malware Removal Forums.
  • My name is xixo_12 and I will guide you.
  • Refrain from running self fixes as this will hinder the malware removal process.
  • You may wish to print them off or copy the instruction into Notepad.
  • If you have any question please don't hesitate to ask.
  • The instructions that I will give to you are specific to your current problem and shouldn't be used on other systems.
  • If you are receiving help or have received help on this problem elsewhere, please let us know.
  • Keep interact with me until your computer is clean.

Please make sure you have done your reading on this topic : How to get help at this forum
Please! If you need more time to do all the instructions, let me know before 72hours is done. Otherwise, your thread will be closed

Attention: I see you have also posted for help with this same problem at Tech Support Guy Forums, topic: Problem Connecting to Various Websites
If you accept our help at Malware Removal... you MUST inform the other forum that you are receiving help elsewhere and to please close your topic.


First,
P2P software.
IMPORTANT: I notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Peer to Peer) File Sharing Programs on your computer.
µTorrent
FrostWire 4.18.6

  • It's not a good idea to have them.
  • You will be sharing files from uncertified sources, and these are often infected. The bad guys use P2P filesharing as a major conduit to spread their wares.
  • Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the P2P program(s) listed above.
  • If you do not wish to remove your P2P programs, don't proceed with the next instruction and please tell me to close this topic.

Next,
Reboot into the usual account.

Next,
CKScanner.
Please download from HERE and save to the desktop.
Note: If you are using Vista, right click and choose Run as Administrator.
  • Double click on CKScanner.exe to run it and click Search For Files.
  • After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
  • A message box will verify the file saved.
  • Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

Next,
Checklist.
Please post.
  • Content of CKFiles.txt

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
