There is a real threat today, that specifically attacks the TCP/IP stack in your computer.
Many threat scanners cannot find it, or it itself, defeats that purpose.
On a Windows Machine:
Bring up a command prompt in administrator mode ( right click on the the command prompt and select "Run as Administrator")
Netsh winsock reset
This clears the TCP/IP stack and gets rid of any additions or modifications.
Then, just reboot your computer.
You would be surprised how fast web browsing may become, and also, the un-bility to easily re-infect your computer has become.
Certainly not a revelation, but some just never knew this.
