Internet slowed down horribly after uninstall Hotspot Shield

Sep 20, 2013 5:55AM PDT

I installed hotspot shield, but decided to to uninstall it right away because it caused my laptop wifi connection to be very unstable.

Afterwards the laptop wifi connection has slowed down dramatically so I ran malwarebytes and there were seems to be some worms from a bunch of source, haven't done a scan in 4 months so I'm not sure if thats caused by hotspot shield.

My question is, is this the reason for my internet slow down or, would there be another reason?

Any advise welcomed!

Hotspot shield will automatically change your I.P address so you can gain secure access to all internet content. It is also the main reason why your Internet services is SLOW.. recommend to only use it if your having survey's or spam I.P in your place.
