I am hacked. When I go online my machine slows because I
have been invaded. a netstat shows upto 40 of 50 connections
with TCP or UDP connections through addresses using ports in the 4000
or 5000 port range. Suggested solutions were to do a clean install
of my OS (Windows 7 Ultimate) to eliminate whatever malware is
in my machine. My anti-malware: AdAware free and AVG free
and Zone Alarm firewall have not detected the culprit.

I nave not yet done malwarebytes or hijackthis yet but they are in my list of actions for this evening. I'll post results and look for your response tomorrow. I am assuming you
are 5 hours ahead of me since I am on the East Coast of the US.
Thanks for the direction.
