Typically when something is working properly for an extended period of time, and then suddenly quits working properly, it's due to something having changed.

So, what was changed around the time things quit working?

There was a computer which was not previously connected to the network since out had viruses n it's network drivers weren't there,someone fixed the drivers issue n connected it to the net since then the issue started, printer nt responding slow network traffic n the said computer itself showed a lot of slowness in everything I did, now an suspecting the virus issue but I have formatted n repaired two pc's on the network n configured them bt still nothing, does this mean I hv to format n repair all the pc's on the network coz av tried running antiviruses to no avail.

Uh oh!

I would suggest you first disconnect that computer from the network. Then sweep other computers within your environment for viruses/malware. If the virus is a network virus it can be jumping around all the computers within your network.

I would suggest you scan for viruses using an online antivirus scanner (trend micro comes to mind) and also, download and run malwarebytes on them too.
