Windows 7 computer suddenly slow to get on internet, slow to browse websites etc

Q: Windows 7 computer suddenly slow to get on internet, slow to browse websites etc

 Hi The computer  that is slow is a desk top tower. In a home.  it is a E machine.
 it has windows 7  professional  with service pack 1
DO KNOW :  I am very new to windows 7 and all it's features. 
When I brought this computer home  last Nov. it was lightening fast at everything! so much better than  the windows XP  it replaced, I was thrilled.  yet Now starting in  April 2015  it is as slow  or slower  as my old Windows with XP ever was  ( and partially the reason for saving my  pennies to get this windows 7 computer)...and  now I'm upset. feeling  like I have been taken.
 
Computer displays the following :
3.8 windows experience index
Intel pentium dual 2.0Ghz  processor 
64 Bit
 
Has Ccleaner installed
has Comodo antivirus and Comodo cleaning essentials installed.
All virus scans  find no infections,  and report that all is well and protected.  ( B/C of the way the computer is operating i'm doubting that and betting there is an infections of some sort)
 
I Have run Comodo cleaning essentials and  results find no abnormalities or infections.
Have run TFC and JRT  and the computer shows no signs of improvement.
have run rKill  and it  finds  no abnormalities  or infections.
All virus scan results  find no infections.
Windows updates is activated  and  all latest updates have been installed. 
 
 maybe there is no infections or key logging...but what then is causing the slow loading of web pages and slow to get online, when i was not experiencing this when I brought the computer home?
 I am paying for internet speed  that is just under road runner speed. 
 
maybe some virus program is  doing too much scanning when i click to get online? ???...I'm grabbing at straws..I have no clue. that's why I am posting here...to get help. 
What medicine do you recommend?
Thank you

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 computer suddenly slow to get on internet, slow to browse websites etc

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi flywelder Maybe we aren't looking at an infection here. There's tons of reasons why a system can slow down, and not all of them are malware related. Let's try to take a look at this issue under another angle shall we?MiniToolBoxDownload MiniToolBox and move the executable file to your Desktop;Execute MiniToolBox and check the following options:List Installed Programs;List Last 10 Event Viewer Errors;List Devices - Only Problems;List Users, Partitions and Memory size;Once this is done, click on Go and wait for the scan to complete;Once the scan is complete, a log will open. Please copy/paste the content of the output log in your next reply;

About 2 days ago, I was playing this game called "Counter-Strike:Global Offensive". One round left before the game ended for us, all of a sudden I start to experience very high ping around 900+. I thought it was something small so I quickly exit the game and reconnected but the issue was still there.
From that day, I've been trying to figure out why my internet has been really slow. I tried a different game and apparently my ping was actually normal, so maybe I was getting DDoSed? So I actually took my dads newly built PC (built it myself, not a lot of programs installed onto it). I plugged the Ethernet cable in, DVI cable, mouse, keyboard, etc. It actually turns out that the internet is crazy fast using the same Ethernet cable, I installed "Steam", let it update and it was really fast, browsing on the web was great and just everything was smooth, so maybe my main computer had a problem??
I reinstalled windows 10 on my main PC, because maybe it could've been a virus and It was time to reinstall windows 10 anyways. I did a clean install, noticed some few problems in 'Device Manager' - I scanned for hardware changes, updated my network adapter and installed my NVIDIA drivers but there was this "PCI Simple Communications Controller" issue.



Troubleshooting I have done:
1. Rebooted router & plugged cable into different ports
2. Made sure everything was plugged in correctly
2. Disabled/Enabled & Diagnosed Ethernet Adapter
3. Did Cl... Read more

Hi,

I'm new on these forums, and it seems like the place that can solve the problem that's been affecting me for the last few days.
As of recently, the internet on my computer has been been relatively slow for the majority of times.
My internet is prone to being slow when everyone in the family is using it, however, as of recently, it's been EXTREMELY slow and laggy when I play games and browse, and I have no idea why.

I tried system restore, reinstalling/uninstalling my network card drivers.
I use a TP-Link W951N V1 network card on my desktop computer.
Other things, I use a 2wire 2701 HGV-W router. (relatively old, yes. Yet, still works efficiently.)

I know I'll need to provide more info, so I'll update as questions are asked.

Thank you!

Hello,
I think I have been infected by a virus, maleware, worm, or something from this genre.
All of a sudden, 10 days ago, my computer became extremelly slow. Basically, it takes now a lot more time to make an operation, such as opening a browser, or Windows Explorer, VLC, and etc. It will freeze quite often. However, mouse will keep working in these situation (but not keyboard). Every second or third time that I launch my computer, it will finally appear a Windows blue screen saying that a software or hardware installation has corrupted the system.
I didnt install any new hardware nor software lately. However, it did happen that some regular Windows updates were interrupted (i.e., I shut down the computer before the update was finalized).
I did a complete Avast scan and it did not solve the problem.

Hello Everyone,
 
So I go on my desktop computer today and what do you know, the internet is really slow. I do a speedtest on my laptop which is right next desktop, and it has regular internet speeds. However, my desktop is really struggling, at times I can't even load basic pages, let alone play games. It's a custom built PC and I'm using a Netcomm wireless adapter to get a wireless connection (I can't use wired). 
 
What happened?!? Why is this randomly happening? Is my adapter broken? Do I need to update something?
 
Sorry if this in the wrong place.
If you need any more information to help me solve this problem then just ask.
 
Thanks,

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the Trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of Trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS.

Hi there...I'm not real knowledgeable about computer so I'm hoping someone can help me out. About 4 weeks ago, out of the blue, the internet started crawling on my home PC...it took minutes for pages to load. After doing a little research I download a couple of different spyware programs, found some things on the computer that shouldn't have been there and removed them. It didn't appear to be anything high risk (I currently use Webroot Spy Sweeper). The problem was still there so I took my computer in to Best Buy to get checked out. They said they removed 30 or so running processes and fixed up my registry but didn't find anything else in the way of Spyware or Malware or anything. As of now things are working much better for the most part, but I still have some sites that just take forever to load (in fact this is one of them). CNN.com took about 1:30 just now, but gmail.com took a second or two. I've tried unplugging my router and cable modem and plugging them back in. If I connect my laptop to the network it runs fine. I have a Dell XPS 400 Windows XP Media Center Service Pack 2. I have 1 GB of RAM (updating to 2 whenever it gets here). I run McAff Security Center and Spy Sweeper and occasionally AdAware. I use IE 7. Here is my latest HJT log (which means absolutely nothing to me!!)

Hi, I have a problem with my mom's computer. It's Windows XP. It started on Tuesday, I think.

We can access programs that use the internet, Computer games, Yahoo and MSN messenger, and stuff, but we cannot browse any websites. We use both Aol Broadband (my mom uses it mostly) and firefox for browsing. Aol won't even connect, but with Firefox, it just... sits there. It never times out or gives the "page cannot be found" thing, it just sits there loading. We've never gotten any kind of error that says there's anything wrong that could cause this. So after looking all over google for some kind of situation like this I've decided to post here.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Err ok back to the point.
 
Few days ago my windows xp professional suddenly started taking a REALLY long time loading desktop and the internet started started getting stuck on limited or no connectivity. I managed to fix them both (by deleting winsock temporarily) but now my internet is really slow.
it takes about a minute to load a page or it just fails to load it. it was never like this. Ive tried:
-resetting network
-some cmd commands (e.g ipconfig/ flushdns or winsock reset catalogue)
-ive checked for viruses and missing operating system files. (no problems)
-repairing services
-tdss killer
-OTL
-Tweaking.com-Windows repair
 
My internet connection is very good but sometimes changes speed from 6-52mbps (dont think thats normal)
There doesnt seem to be anything wrong with my computer and yet the internet is abnormally slow for browsing, streaming and mmorpgs.
my ping is around 20ms, download speed is around 6mbps and upload spd 0.80mbps. My jitter is bad occasionally and i sometimes recieve heavy packet losses.
Im not exactly computer savvy. Does anyone have any ideas please?  :s

++Fixed, see final post

I've been using Win7 for about 2 months now, and all has been going well until 2 nights ago. I noticed that my browsing speeds were very slow, so I just assumed it was my network, and went on about my business. Tonight I fired it up, and ran into the same thing.

I rank the Speakeasy speed test, and my download speeds were only at 300kbps on a 5mpbs line. I started doing some checking on my router, modem etc. and then I had the brilliant idea to run the same test on my laptop running Vista. No problems there, got a full 5.2mbps download. So, I think that rules out anything with my ISP, modem, router etc.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled my wireless network device drivers, changed my auto tuning settings at the command line, turned off the firewall on my pc, closed all unnecessary processes (there's not much on here, fairly fresh install), restarted, held my breath, tweaked settings on my network card, but nothing seems to be improving. This is consistent across Chrome and IE8.

I've been reading through other posts about the same sort of issue, but I haven't come across anything that works. I don't have any AV software installed (I like to live on the edge) but I did run a spyware scan and it came up clean.

Any other ideas? I run a small website business out of my house, and it makes times pretty tough when it takes forever to connect to anything, and then to upload any files. I've wasted an entire evening trying to come up with a solutio... Read more

My ESET wasn't able to detect virtumonde when my father used my comp to browse some *ICK* porno sites. I installed avast and managed to get rid of of it as well as other trojans and a bevy of worms (god i wonder what kind of sites my father looks at... peeks at history and gasps)

well anyway, after removing said viruses now I can't seem to be able to browse websites such as yahoo and gmail but am able to go to sites like these. I was wondering if anyone can help me.

I have two laptops and I tested it on my personal laptop and I can surf without restrictions but when I try it on my recently infected laptop, yahoo just keeps on loading and loading etc

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore.

Just today, my computer has been running extremely slow. It was fine yesterday and all week, before that etc... etc..
It runs totally fine is Safe Mode (I'm currently in Safe Mode with networking support) but it's not working at all in Normal Settings. It has only a few second boot time, but once I hit the desktop, Any attempt to open the Start Menu, Start any Application, or even right-click the desktop results in nothing but freezing and the computer freezing up. even Task Manager doesn't do anything.
 
Please Help! I have no idea why this is happening, I'm usually pretty computer savvy and I can fix my own computer problems, but this one is beyond my scope.

A:My computer (Windows 7) Is suddenly running slow.

Does it freeze forever, or is it just super slow (after it freezes, leave it alone for 30 minutes to see if it unfreezes)?
 
If you're able:
Open up Task Manager (taskmgr.exe) and select the option to view process' for all users (the long button in the lower left of the processes tab)
Then click on the VIew...Select Columns entry - and select I/O Reads and I/O Other
Then sort by the CPU, Memory, I/O Reads, and I/O Other columns - look for the process name of the highest couple in each category.
Let us know them and we'll move on from there.
 
Another thing to try is this free program:  http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html
Use it to disable all non-Windows shell extensions.  Reboot to see if it helps.
If it does, then re-enable ½ at a time and see if you can find the problem one in that way (by ½'s)
 
Post back with the results and we'll see what else we can do.

Antivirus and other programs:

AVG Free
SuperAntispyware (Free Edition)
Malwarebytes (Free Edition)

Computer is fairly new (refurbished, only a few months old). Suddenly it became slow to respond when accessing websites. Where it used to take a website about 5-10 seconds to load, it's now taking 45-60 seconds or more. It might take me a full minute to go from one email to the next. Very frustrating. Sometimes a window will "hang" and when I bring up the task manager to close a website, it's often slow to do that and I get "program not responding...end now."

I update and run my antivirus, antispyware, and antimalware programs regularly.

My Task Manager:
HP Pavilion with Intel Core i3 running on Windows 8 and NVIDIA GEFORE GT 630M 1GB

---

My relatively new (about 2 months old) laptop running on Windows 8 suddenly became slow. I noticed it starting yesterday when it became really laggy. Just a few days ago it was working just fine.
I tried to look for solutions online and was worried that it might be caused by malware. I did a quick scan with Malwarebytes and it found no infections.
When I boot in safe mode, it seems pretty fine. I tried doing a system restore but I was also informed that it wasn't completely done probably because of an antivirus.
My antivirus is Norton Internet Security and I've read that Norton can be such a hog so I've tried disabling it though not entirely and it hasn't been uninstalled yet. What worries me is that I haven't experienced this problem even with Norton running until just recently.
I've also tried running a chkdsk /r because going to Tools > Check for Errors on my C:\ drive said that there were errors that needed repair.
It has become less laggy but apparently not totally (not to previous state). My task manager however still shows 100% disk usage. Previously Norton would be listed among the top but now it's usually "System" and I don't quite understand why.
Help very much appreciated! Thanks.

It might be Windows trying to index the contents of your hard drive which is worth shutting off to test.

Open your start menu and type "indexing options" and choose the first entry in the Settings category. Remove everything from the list and restart. Does it have any effect?

Ok, I have 5 computers on a home network, 4 Windows XP and one Redhat Linux Fedora Core 4. About a month ago, one of the windows boxes suddenly went from about 550Kb/s download to 100Kb/s download from various newsgroups. Also, when trying to pull AND push files to that same box, it is a very slow file transfer.

I didn't load any new software in that time and I waited so long because at the time, the newsgroup server that I am using reported problems associated with Hurricane Rita. This of course doesn't explain the network speed.

I've run speed tests on all the other computers, and they all report download speeds of about 550Kb/s and upload speeds of about 45Kb/s except the one, and it has download speeds of about 100Kb/s and upload speeds the same, about 45Kb/s.

After I noticed the speed reduction, I loaded a firewall, ** Protowall ** and I downloaded the latest beta of Microsoft Anti-Spyware and ran it. Also, I have Norton with the latest updates and it reports no problems.

Please, let me know if you need more info or if someone had any general tips to try. I am about at the end of my rope and reformatting looks like the only other option to me.

Thanks!

Mike in Ohio

Edit: Forgot to say, I went to 3 differnt speed testing web sites, and they all report the download speed the same on that one box, about 100Kb/s and the others are around 500Kb/s
 

A:1 computer on a network suddenly now has slow file transfer on internet and network

Are all the computers wired similarly? All run to the same router/switch?

You should check the cable of the problematic machine, try using ping to the router with 1400 byte packets. Also, boot up some CD Linux or equivalent and see what speeds you get from there - helps to rule out any problems with the operating system.

Hello,

It's been a while.

I'm trying to help a friend get rid of a virus on their computer. This virus is a bit of a tricky one as it seems to be pretty difficult to remove.

Normally, I can just run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and that would solve the problem. However, this virus does not allow to run the application. When I try to run it (or any other application), it doesn't do anything. If you take a look at Task Manager Process List while you attempt to open the application, you will see that the process appears and then just disappears again.

I've located the virus in the following location on the computer:
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\dwykacrj\ldqwkcbw

and I attempted to remove the file, however, it's not letting me as it says the file is in use.

Normally, I'd be able to see a Process in the Task Manager for the virus that I can stop and then delete the file, however I cannot see the process for this virus.

So I have to say I'm stuck on how to get rid of the thing, hence why I come to the experts (my favourite experts, might I add :) ).

I've ran the DDS and GMER scripts as per instructions and have attached as required.

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

My Windows XP computer has slowed down within the past month or so. The computer, an eMachines T6528 Athlon 64 3500+ with 512 mb ram which is shared, while certainly not a power burner, always started quickly and was quick to get to web sites. I use it mainly for email (Outlook Express) and browsing the internet (IE7). I have defragged the C: drive and cleaned out any unused applications - no help. Since my Trend Micro Internet Security subscription was expiring and since the computer was already really slow I changed security to a CA Suite provided by my ISP. That did nothing for the speed.

It starts very slowly, opens programs very slowly, and takes forever to load a web page.

I didn't know where to post this for sure (gaming or Networking) but I decided in affected Networking a bit more. My general problem is that my internet connectivity went down by quite a bit. I have two different networks, one normal, one 5G. The 5G network went down from a speed of 300 Mbps to 65~ Mbps. I didn't really noticed this until I started playing certain online games, where I wouldn't have any 'lag' of any sort (Players would move where they wanted to with no delay), until I would disconnect for several seconds at a time, then reconnect.
That started a while ago, but it was rare and would only happen a few times a match (The games in particular were Dota 2 and League of Legends). My ping for these games was also exceedingly good. My Mbps were still at there highest at that point though. Now, in the past few days, it's dropped to it's amount (as has the regular connection, but it has a better speed now [100~ish], which is odd), and the disconnecting is really common, but I still have the good ping when I'm not dc'd.
Also, while the game's ping is high, something else like Youtube video's loading and flash games loading is really slow. Another thing I find weird is that everyonce in a while It'll show that I am back to my old amount.

Please take note of some guidelines for this fix:
Refrain from making any changes to your computer including installing/uninstall programs, deleting files, modifying the registry, and running scanners or tools.

We have Comcast Internet. Starting yesterday, it is suddenly taking about 1 1/2 minutes to load a page. Checked with our neighbor who also has Comcast and they are not having this problem. My router and modem were purchased last summer when Comcast upgraded. I bought both from the list of acceptable ones that Comcast had posted on their web site.

I've done the unplugging and re-plugging of the modem and router several times which didn't help. I thought maybe it was my wireless connection, but it is the same after connecting with an Ethernet cord. We have 2 Macs in the house and one PC laptop. All are doing the same slow load of pages.

Can anyone suggest anything we could check to find the problem? When it started doing this, we were getting heavy rains. Could that have anything to do with it?

Thanks Peg
 

A:Internet suddenly VERY slow

Ask comcast to do a line test
connect a PC directly to the modem
do a powercycle
and then run a speed test and ping test

www.speedtest.net
www.pingtest.net

------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to Power Cycle

?Power Cycle? process to reboot or reset the modem/router

Switch off / Shut down all the devices Modem, Router and Computers, also unplug their power cables.
Now Wait for at least 15 minutes.
Plug the power cords back in, but don?t switch any device on.
First turn on your Modem (or Modem/Router combination unit) and then wait for a few minutes and allow the modem to connect to your Internet Service - allow all the lights to become stable.
Next switch on your Router (if its a separate device) and then wait for a few minutes and allow the Router lights to become stable.
Now turn on your computer.
You should now be able to access the Internet.

I called my internet provider who verified my connection ad said everything was fine and that the problem was on my end. I was advised on some things to try. I have: rebooted, reset my modem, cleaned my cache, deleted cookies and temporary files, ran disk defrag, downloaded and ran spyware doctor. None of these things has helped.

Go to The Start>Run>Msconfig>startup. Uncheck anything that?s not a firewall, anti-virus/spyware, sound drive, anything you need to run your computer properly, etc. Then click apply and close.

Today after having no issues whatsoever with my internet it suddenly decided to go only about 20-30kbs for almost any online program.

I called my ISP which is qwest and their lovely foreign help simply had me do speed tests which showed that instead of getting my normal 7mb up and 3 or so down it was terribly slow.

This in turn made them think it was simply my computers fault and not theirs, so I have been running ati-virus,spyware, and any other programs I have to no avail.

On the speed test when I choose the closest place my speed is normally around 1000-2500kbs / 700-800kbs, but when I choose somewhere else it drops down to speeds I previously metioned.

My hijackthis log is attached to this post.

Edit: I have tried half of the places at speedtest.net and some give me full speed while most will not.

Second Edit: Played my PS3 which is directly hooked up to my modem and the connection was complete crap. This leads me to believe that I need to slap qwest around and see what's going on but if anyone can still help me with my log I would appreciate it.

I have installed more Ram about a week ago. There was 2 x 256mb cards installed already, and I bought 2 x 512mb and installed them alongside the 2 x 256 ones.

The diferrence was great - the internet pages loaded a lot quicker, but after a while, the internet drags very slowly.

Im wondering if I should have removed the old 256Mb Rams altogether. Would that affect the speed of the internet if the memory cards were not compatible together?

I have done the obvious things, like cleaning temp folder, cookies etc; but I get the same old thing. Quck at first then suddenly goes very slow.
I did an experiment. I was waiting for a page to load (seemed forever) whilst I powered up my laptop and went on the same webpage which loaded instantly!

Any ideas

When it slows down...take a look at the processes running in Task Manager.

I suggest also taking a look at whatever add-ons and toolbars you have installed...and removing some, if not all.

I know it is not the Ventrilo server because when i go on youtube a video that would have loaded instantly now loads in 10 min. I have to pause it and come back in a bit then watch it even then its still loading.

Its only this computer too i have tested my mothers computer(I'm a teenager so yes i live with my parents) downstairs with Speedtest.net and it said like 12mbps download 3mbps upload and i think 30 or so ping. When i tested my sisters it said 22mbps download 4mbps upload. when i test my computer everytime its under .50mbps and upload is 2-3mbps.

I have searched google and someone said to disable wireless zero config or something. i couldn't find it in services. any help is appreciated.

I am on windows vista. I have reset the router many times. i scan my pc regularly with malewarebytes antimalware and avast pro.

How does your laptop do with an ethernet connection?

Does another computer work OK on the wireless?

If no computers are getting normal internet access through the router try one directly connected to the modem.

A:internet suddenly very slow

RELEVANCY SCORE 70.4

A few days ago my internet went down for 3 or 4 days, i found out it was the ISPs fault, anyway, it came back, and has been quite slow every since. Games online work fine, no lag or anything, but internet pages are very slow to load except google which is very quick. I have been told this is an MTU problem or something, but i tried "optimising" my settings with TCP optimiser and it didnt change anything. Could someone pls help, this is so annoying, videos take ages to load and buffer aswell, im paying for 8mb internet and its so slow

I have contacted the ISP, but they are useless, i asked them to do a line check and they said it was ok after 2 minutes, but i have been told it takes alot longer than that to check!

I use firefox with Fasterfox installed and it tells me on average pages take about 10 seconds (sometimes up to 30 seconds!!) to load that used to take about 3 or 4, i know this isnt a huge difference to some, but its annoying after having fast internet before, and 3 minute videos can sometimes takes half an hour to buffer.

Any help would be great, thanks

RELEVANCY SCORE 70.4

Everything was working fine until 3/4 days ago. Now my browsing is incredibly slow, my online games (warcraft 3) is spiking like a biatch, youtube wont even load fast enough to stream a freaking video WTF. I have no idea what changed.
We have 4 computers connected to a D-Link router, mine is the newest most powerful and yet it's the only one that's having this problem, the 3 others are all fine.
I have tried AVG, spybot, spyware terminator, microsoft malicious software removal tool to check for viruses or malware. I have found a few, got rid of them but that didn't change anything.
Tried clearing cache,cookies, temp files, NADA.
I tried resetting my modem and router but that didn't help.

I'm running windows vista hom premium, Hp pavillion Intel core 2 quad CPU 2.33ghz, 6ghz of RAM.

This is what I get from Speedtest.net:

My download speed is 1/5 of the freakin ISP average.

I'm desperately needing your help. I don't know what to do anymore and this is so frustrating.

Thank you for your time and patience.
 

A:HELP! MY internet got slow suddenly!!

Welcome to TSG:
As far as you know,did anything change ,hardware/software ?
You could try this:
Boot up in safe mode with networking.
See if that changes anything.
And if you speedtest the other pc,the recorded speed is as expected ?
