ok guys so i did another reset on the router and before connecting to any site i activated the firewall and the SPI(wich i dont know what is ) and now everything seems to work normally on the pc and even on the phones....
i think the problem was the fact that i didn't activated the firewall and the SPI before the malware took over
i'll tell you if the problem will appear again or else i'll mark as solved

thank you for your patience and your precious help btw

Here is some info on Service Pack 1 (SP1):
Service Pack and Update Center - Microsoft Windows

Service Pack 1 was already installed as shown in the FRST report:
Platform: Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 (X64) OS Language: Italian

Anyway, glad the issue is not appearing any longer. Use the computer for a few days, and keep us posted on how it goes.



Good luck, Wintermoon1919!!

I believe he meant SPI guys. Not service pack 1. In fact the post states that.

A firewall that performs stateful packet inspection (SPI) is supported on most routers. It is an extra security measure. Here is a link about it:

This was a sticky one, great work determining the root cause.
