I have very very odd problem. This is my story.
In last two weeks I'm experiencing extremely slow Internet connection. For example just to open this page to post message I waited almost a minute. Internet became so slow that just opening a Google or some other small website is painful. I never had a problem like this and I have **bleep** and SpyBot always active and updated.
Since I didn't found where is a problem, hour ago I decided to install ZoneAlarm 7.0.462. I was amazed when he reported more that 5000 blocked incoming connections in "Inbound protection" in just one hour?! While I'm typing this message I'm looking at counter and there is almost one blocked connection every second, now is at 6000. I checked addresses and almost all are from Asia. Now I realize that my internet was slow because of these incoming connections. I scanned computer with **bleep**, SpyBot, HijackThis and Ad-avere. They didn't found any problem now but a month ago I found few problems with SpyBot and they were deleted.
My question is, what is going on here??? I'm not computer rookie and I understand how things are working but I don't understand now is possible that my computer is receiving thousands of connections from various addresses in just one hour? What caused this problem? How I can solve this?
PS: I don't have a static IP.
Thank you in advance,
