Computer has virus/hacker that is taking bandwidth

Recommended Posts

There is something on my computer that is eating up my bandwidth at a extremely fast pace. I have gone through a shocking 80 GB on my computer alone this month which is very very unusual for a casual surfer. I tried asking for help on a forum called bleeping computer you can see the thread here -------> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/526851/virus-or-malware-using-tons-of-bandwidth/ Where I have asked for help and if you go through the thread you will see all of my logs, they could not help me there so I am asking on here. None of my programs Kaspersky full Internet Security and Malware Bytes Full Pro have been able to pick it up and remove it. After doing some research I now think that my computer has been hacked and is being used as a zombie to steal data from. I have 2 bandwidth meters on my computer so I can see when and how much is be taken. I have NO wireless so no one has hacked into that. It is clearly my computer that is taking the bandwidth no other computers I only have 1 computer in my entire household and that is mine. If someone could please help me, thanks.

Sorry about this, I've just been very desperate to try and fix this problem. At the moment I think my only choice is to reformat the harddrive and reinstall the OS.

Sorry for the double post here but I can't seem to find a edit button. The admins/mods are welcome to delete this topic I am very sorry for cross posting and breaking the rules but I have tried everything to get rid of this virus/malware that is taking my bandwidth. I have a few more things I will try that may fix it if they don't work my only option is to reformat my harddrive and do a fresh install of windows. This is one stubborn malware/virus I know a lot about computers and have removed a lot of viruses and have never seen something this stubborn. Thanks for your help and trying to help, once my computer is fixed I will be very careful on what sites I visit and what I download so I don't a virus like this again.
