There are also, if interested, remote assistance options where you can let someone that knows what they're doing remote control your computer.
That, of course, is up to you.

Download this tool then
Go to start>run>msconfig>boot then check the start windows in safemode with networking
Restart your computer and log on to the admin account run your browser and see how the internet connection(just make a note about it and tell us im curious) is and run that scan and see how that works out. Its a very good tool that often picks up what the other expensive AV programs miss. so if it picks up a virus will tell you exactly what to do to get rid of it

ok well thanks for clarifying -- I did offer other alternatives before formatting
now that it has become clear the OP has nothing on the c:\ it would be much easier for the OP to format -- that will work or prove h/w failure
most non-techies would prefer to just format instead of going through with a fine tooth comb to troubleshoot and possibly formatting still, especially when theres "like four" pics to save
and about the NIC, it could be but I doubt it
speed test looked fast enough for the NIC to be functioning . . at least well enough to stream
OP also indicated the problems persisted through many tasks, including a screen capture program
doesn't sound much like a NIC to me
wouldn't the pagefile size be reset to default after windows install? (honest question)

From the report:
Security: anonymous user access is enabled
also said remote sharing is enabled when I did not enable it.
There were 5 "suspicious" items.
