    Hi!
    I am having a weird problem lately regarding internet.
    I get a download speed 10Mbps when i test the speed on speedtest.net, but mine is 3Mbps!
    Unfortunately, i can download only 30kbps...
    Any virus here?

    What do you mean exactly? Do you pay for 3 Mbps, get 10Mbps when testing (through like Speedtest I assume) but only download with 30Kbps?

    If that is what it's like, how is normal browsing? Are the 30Kbps limit everywhere or just certain servers?

    yes. With speedtest it shows 10Mbps

    Edit: rerun the test on speedtest.net and it showed 60kbps
    I pay for 3Mbps and have downloaded with that speed for months since today! :(

    Re-edit:rerun again the speedtest.net got 9.8Mbps?!!!

    do a complete scan of your pc with an anti virus, it would help.
    I recommend you trying free edition of malwarebytes.

    Very weird. Now everything works perfect.
    I think the only possible thing is someone is using my internet o_O
    And looks like he turned off the internet connection... :p

    More than likely it was as issue in the ISP side of things. Also if it is a home ADSL connection you may be suffering from Exchange congestion.

    do you have a wireless router? if so put a password on it... also check for torrent apps running.
