Hello Expert,
I am using Firefox and Chrome and yes torrent-ing.
Before 4 days, I was started to get ads in my Chrome with NOTE "powered by counterflix":(
I have used "adwcleaner" which didn't helped alot. After I used it I didn't see add for 5 mins. but
after 5 mins I started to see ads again with "powered by counterflix" title
After that I have used "malwarebytes", which removed the that ads but from that day my internet is not proving that speed :(

I have tried same internet in my second pc which is proving 400 kbytes per second and this (My main Laptop) it is showing 50 kbytes (Max 100).

What can I do about this?

Please help, I am in a big issue, I am a doing a job for that I need internet with full speed.

Thank you

Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool

This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine.

Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable.

Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:

Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on
    icon and select
    Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finishes FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please attach it to your reply.
