    Recently my internet connection has become very slow. I use the same programs as before and my internet just become so slow.

    I am guessing someone is hijacking this line or something.

    When i open Task Manager i see the following;
    firefox.exe 160.000 kb

    How do i see if my internet is hijacked or not

    thanks will be given.

    Think also to scan your computer with norton and superantispyware, you may be infected with a bot

    just ask your little brother in the other room to stop downloading tranny porn when you try to do your bh activity :D

    no, really
    do what the others said

    ru using unprotected wifi? if not, you have spyware/malware
    check for running processes if there's any which not used to/shouldn't have to run, terminate it, if you can't do that, install security task manager and quarantine the process (but be careful what you quarantine), then clear your cookies with ccleaner because what you should do next will be faster: run a full system scan with the tool spyware doctor for spywares/adwares/malwares and after you fininshed, your system should be clean
