Within the past few days, when I log onto the internet (dial up via either MSN or NetZero), my download times are excrutiatingly slow and many MSN functions will not work. When I check the Dial Up connection icon, it shows that more data is being transmitted than is being received. Sometimes a 3:1 ratio.

I have run Nortons Virus and scrubbed one virus (W32.SWEN) and a trojan (BACKDOOR.SDBOT). Adaware comes up clean as does Spyware Doctor.

At first I thought it may have been tied to using the same MSN connection for both my laptop (the problem) and my desktop workstation and the excessive SEND was tied to MSN synchronozing. But since the problem also exists while on NetZero, I'l totally befuddled.

Any suggestions?

Try another antivirus and see if they find something Norton missed.
