A virus attack may just be one of the causes that may lead to slow internet connections. But usually when a virus affects the computer, you will notice some unusual performances like files getting replicated, a different url opening when you open an address and so forth. If you have noticed any unusual behavior with the computer that might be as a result of a virus attack you will need to perform a full scan of your computer to try and eliminate that virus.

Otherwise, slowness in internet connection may be also as a result of activities that you are carrying on your computer. For instance downloading takes up a lot of bandwidth and therefore might lead to slow internet speeds. Opening many tabs in the browser may be bandwidth consuming too.

The health of your computer can affect your Internet connection. Spyware and viruses can definitely cause problems, but your Internet connection speed can also be affected by add-on programs, the amount of memory the computer has, hard disk space and condition, and the programs that are running.

Two of the most frequent causes of poor Internet performance are spyware and viruses. Spyware can slow your system by interfering with your browser and monopolizing your Internet connection. Spyware monitors your Internet use and keystrokes, which adds delays. The problem is compounded when there are multiple spyware programs running at the same time. If the problem is severe enough, you can lose connectivity altogether. To get your Internet performance back, you should regularly run an antispyware program to clean out any spyware infestation.
