It may be worthwhile running Malwarebytes, just to check if you have picked up some malware -
It also looks like you have some problems with your line as your sync speed has dropped. This is possible down to the weather, so I would not worry too much about that at the moment.

That is looking a bit better, but you are still going to be subject to Sky's throttling policy. The only LLU ISP on your exchange is TalkTalk and although they have had a lot of bad press, they could hardly be worse than Connect. My neighbour uses them and is very satisfied. He has never had a problem, except once when his phone went down and it was fixed in under 12 hours.

Thank for your help mate I appreciate it. I think I will stay with Sky because I don't really get on with Talk Talk. I guess I will have to wait and see if my exchange gets Sky enabled. Thanks again.
