Sounds like you have some sort of malware. My advice would be remove Kaspersky.

 

Install a free, lightwight AV like clamwin http://www.clamwin.com/. Manually run a scan every month or so.

 

in the mean time in an attempt to cure your current issue download malwarebytes free version, and run a scan.

No doubt it will find the root of your problem. If the internet is not working long enough to maintain a connection, you will need a USB thumb drive and download via a different pc.

I can only give you my opinion on Kaspersky. There are plenty of well documented links between Mr Kaspersky, Kaspersky labs and FSB (the new name for KGB).

 

Some just see it as here say and rumour, but the Russian government has passed laws allowing them to snoop domestically and internationally. Seen as Mr Kaspersky has not fled Russia as many other internet entrepreneurs have, suggests to me all data on machines with Kaspersky has back doors to the Kremlin.

 

These links to kaspersky were documented well before the Ukraine / Crimea crisis.

 

Maybe it's all just scaremongering, but imho Russia has a cyber weapon it can use with plausible deniability on it's hands in the shape of Kasperky Labs AV.

 

The proof is in the pudding though, if malwarebytes picks up a trojan or virus that kaspersky didn't, that would certainly be all the proof i needed to say Kaspersky is not what it claims to be.

 

Some in the hacking community certainly think kaspersky is a back door to millions of PC's

The slowing down of a PC can be relatively harmless bottlenecking of the system, but it can also be a symptom of a machine infected.
