I have xp PC, ran spyware,spybot,norton antivirus and malware and STILL connection running at 30% normal speed can anyone advise on what other programs to run to see if got spyware etc

There is Adaware for anti spyware click here
Running two anti spyware programs alongside each other may cause conflicts between them.

Btw, who do you have for your broadband connection?

Can you give more details on your connection? ISP and the package you subscribe to.

How do you know your connection is running at 30% of normal speed?
Are you measuring this from how fast you can download stuff? because your download speed from a website depends on how fast the site can throw stuff at you.

If you've used a speedtest site then are you running the test with no other software running?
