Q: Deadly Slow Network Speeds, software or hardware related?

Hey guys, I've been having some issues with my download/upload speeds lately after upgrading mobo/processor and OS to 7 x64 and I haven't been able to track it. My average wired on other computers are around: 25 (download), 7 (upload) and wireless I generally see: 13 (download), 4 (upload).

This particular setup was okay before, and I have another wireless router set up on the other side of my wall giving me full service. I don't have wireless problems with any other devices other then this one.

Current connect speed: 54 mb/s.
Wireless adapter: Tenda W311U 11N

Preferred Solution: Deadly Slow Network Speeds, software or hardware related?

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.)

Another forgotten detail is that everyone once in a while, the Windows networking service will crash, and a lot of my visual settings will change to basic until I run the troubleshooter which starts the networking service back up again. I'm sure they're related.

Hello everyone, first time post here. I will make every attempt to make it brief.

A 500GB external drive failed on me and I needed to restore all the files (mainly JPEGs) from Backblaze.

I was in the process of downloading the 143 GB compressed file to my Win7 machine and saw that my download speed was only 2.5Mbps. According to Verizon FIOS my internet speed should be 10/2. I added the Firefox plugin "Internet Download Manager" to try to speed things up.

If you do the math, the download would take well over 15 hrs. In the middle, there was a connection problem and I needed to start ALL over. Besides upgrading the FIOS speed, is there anything I can do on my computer's end to speed up the download? Hardware, software, tweak, plug-in, etc??

In another possibly related issue, I was transferring a very large 40 GB file from my external HD connected to my Win Vista machine to my Win7 machine's internal HD and it also had a transfer speed of about 2.5Mbps.

The external HD on the Vista machine is connected by USB 2.0 and the network is through my Verizon FIOS wireless N router. The Win7 machine has a brand new DELL network card.

How can I fix or speed up these two problems.

Thanks so much for your suggestions.

A:Two (related?) Issues: Transfer Speeds VERY Slow

The slow speed sounds like some sort of hard drive speed issue to me, but I'm probably wrong.

Regardless, here's a few ways to speed up your internet speeds.

1) Use a download manager that supports pausing and resuming downloads. This allows you to resume a "broken" download on most servers. My favorite download manager for Windows is Flashget 1.9. I don't particularly like the new version (3.5), but you might want to try that as well.
FlashGet(??)-Best Download Manager

2) Make sure that your download manager knows to use multiple connections. This simply causes the download manager to download multiple parts of the same file at the same time. It can speed up certain connections. This is automatically enabled in most download managers.

From what I've seen, USB 2.0 speeds when not using a system cache tend to average around 22-25 MB/s on my computer. In other words, you should be able to transfer a 1GB file in a bit less than a minute. Extrapolating onwards, you'll have over 60 GB in an hour and so on.

Downloads using a 10/2 internet connection such as your own should average to around 1.25 MB/s. In other words you should be able to download about 75MB a minute and 4.5 GB an hour. 150GB will take about 33 hours to download. If your download said 15 hours, you're downloading at approximately 2.5MB/s.

Keep in mind that your rated line speed is measured in Megabits per second and your actual download speed that you see is rated in Megabytes per second.

Hi to all this is my first post , I will like to see if someone can tell if this is a Hardware or Software related?

I went to my sister house and she told me the computer do not boot up and when we try it again the screen displayed in small letters "no sistem imput"

can someone help me to find out the problem?
 

A:Hardware or Software related?

Most likely cause is a failed hard drive. If the computer is three years old, or more, or has a Quantum, Maxtor, or silver colored Western Digital drive, that is the problem most of the time.
Luckily you can now get large drives cheaply at www.newegg.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, www.directron.com, www.outpost.com, www.TigerDirect.com, and many others.
Do you have the install disc set that will be needed.
If you have valuable data that will need to be recovered, that can SOMETIMES be done, but that is a separate question.

Hi there. I'm a home networking novice, learning on the fly. I have a Dell 3.2GHz P4 running WinXP home and a Dell 600MHz PIII running Win98SE that I successfully networked together (Ethernet) this past weekend.

The network card in the PIII is the one it shipped with from Dell 4 or so years ago (it occupies a PCI slot), the network card in the P4 is an onboard (Intel PRO/100 VE?) model, and I bought a Linksys EtherFast cable/dsl router with 4 port switch.

In the Local Area Connection box on my P4 machine I see a connection speed of 100Mbps. Is this the theoretical max I can expect with my hardware set up?

Will I not be capable of reaching my max speed because of a basic onboard NIC in one machine and an old NIC in the other machine?

In short, should I buy two new Fast Ethernet NIC's and install them to get my best performance? I'll be using the network to transfer files between machines, share the internet, share printers and a little gaming.

After installing my network, I copied (from the P3 to the P4) 225MB of picture files in roughly 5 minutes. Does this speed sound appropriate considering my machines and hardware set up? I don't know what to expect.

Thanks for the help.

A:Home network speeds? Hardware?

You might be happy to get ca. 50-60 Mbps on a theoretical 100Mbps connection. See http://www.hawaii.edu/brownbags/networks/network.opt.pdf for a summarised presentation.

If both NICs claim to be 100 Mbps that is what you'll get - after the allowances made above, then maybe a max of 60Mbps. Obviously, if one card is 10Mbps, or the hub/router is 10 Mbps then that rather puts a cap on expected throughput!

In answer to your last question yes, if you install gigabit hardware all round then expect gigabit performance (allowing for all the protocol overheads, collisions, re-trying, etc as per the above paper).

Hello. I'm going to be one of those people who made an account here because it's the first result for a tech support forum due to it's name. Hopefully someone on here knows a bit about what's going on, as help would be much appreciated. As I said in the title of the thread, I'm have several problems and I'm unsure if they are hardware or software related.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1545. It's about 4 years old. I am running Windows 7.

The problem possibly began a few weeks ago, when my AVG (virus/spyware protector) detected two trojans that they could not remove from my registry. As a default response, I used a System Restore to a point before I got that notice. I made sure AVG was up to date and ran it again, it did not detect the trojans anymore. I have run AVG scan several times now and it doesn't detect anything, so I'm unsure if this incident is related or simply a coincidence.

The true start of my problems was several days ago, when my laptop was no longer able to come out of sleep mode. I would close the laptop, leave it be, come back to it and when opening the laptop nothing happens. It remains a black screen and the only way to get the laptop to turn back on is to turn it off and reboot it via the power button. This does not happen every time, but definitely the majority of the time. Just to make sure it wasn't the problem, I updated several of my drivers (audio, video, BIOS), which did not resolve the problem.

Hello everyone! New member with an old problem. BSoD.For about two months now, I've been having those. Actually it's been happening ever since I installed a new sound card (SoundBlaster X-Fi Extreme) and a new graphic card (GeForce 8800GT 512Mo). I've cleaned up my registry as best I could, updated my drivers and spent way too much time looking at Minidump files, too no effect. Recently though, a pattern has appeared which is a little weird and which has me thinking that the problem may not be driver related.Here's what's happening:Last weekend I installed an old game for my wife. I did the usual, installing and rebooting and then she started playing. About an hour and 45 minutes later, I get the old BSoD so I let the system reboot and she starts playing again. After another hour and 45 minutes later, the PC gives another BSoD. So out of curiosity, we keep going and everytime, after about an hour and 45 minutes later, the system gives me a BSoD and reboot.Now considering this strange behavior, and since the analysis of the Minidump files is inconclusive (Trap_Cause_Unknow, Unexpected Interrupt, Unknown Floating Point, Analysis Inconclusive, Blahblahblah...), the origin of these BSoD may be something else.So...HardwareUnless one of the new card is not fonctionning properly, my first hypothesis is that the power supply may not be up for the job of running two new cards on top of what it used to run.

A:Bsod: Hardware Or Software Related?

What error messages do you get for the BSOD?

What key errors are reflected in Event Viewer?

If I suspect a hardware problem...I just remove the hardware I have doubts about...and try to run the system without it.

I also try the hardware on that "spare system" I allow myself (I have 2 desktops).

In your case, I would have tried the devices one at a time...both on the problem system and on another system running the same O/S.

If each worked independently of the other, I would then try to get them to play together.

Sometimes...it just doesn't happen.

I've recently build a new computer, but have been receiving several intermittent BSODs.

I don't know a lot about them, so if anyone could help determine what might be the cause, or at least if it's hardware or software related?

I'm aware the performance report says i have no security installed, but I do have mcafee virusscan enterprise installed and running, with one feature turned off.

I'm also aware that there is an "unknown device" in the device manager under plug and play, but i don't think that has anything to do with either?

Windows was boot-installed over the same version of windows on another computer (using the same hard drive in new computer) and then Windows.old was transferred ti external HDD.

All the computer components are brand new (other than the internal HDD) and installed correctly (according to a local IT tech support guy)

My system specs are:

Windows 7Ultimate 64-bit (retail)
ASUS P8P67 Evo Motherboard
Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz

ATI Firepro V3750 (256Mb) Graphics

Thanks very much if anyone can help!

A:Is this BSOD hardware or software related?

Related to Alpha Networks Filter driver. Yours from before win 7 was released. Update or remove.

They had a zip drive also in the tower and almost all the files have weird names with shapes, punctuations, #'s and letters like encryption or something.

Seasonic is a good power supply brand but we're not going to recommend you run any pci-e card on anything less then a 550w.

However 60c isn't enough to cause blue screens. While it's too hot for an idle , it's not enough to be causing the problem.

Hi guys, I been having a strange problem with my graphics card lately. Randomly yesterday I was playing Call of Duty (Modern Warfare 2) and suddenly the graphics went crazy on me (see attached pictures). I can't imagine what would randomly cause this to happen. While I originally thought it was a problem with just this game, there are small noticable graphics glitches that occur on my computer now. On startup, for instance, the computer screen has tiny white dots going up and down, and there are some other minor glitches but nothing extremely noticable.
Basically I'm wondering if this could possibly be a fixable software problem, or if it's a hardware issue. Last year I had my graphics card suddenly break, but the computer was basically unusable after that, which leads me to believe this may actually be a driver problem with my graphics card. I installed new drivers for the card but it had no effect.

My card is a Radeon HD 4350.
The only change in the computer I can think of is that I installed a demo of a game (Jedi Knight II), which played perfectly fine, and played Call of Duty afterwards and everything was working fine for at least a little while before this problem surfaced.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, just to outline my problem more, my computer slows down for increments of 30 seconds or more, before returning to normal. At first I thought this was a gaming related issue, as I first encountered it playing a game, where my fps would drop dramatically and become unplayable. In fact, I just had "lag" for lack of a better term, just occur typing this post. I've spent several weeks checking possible fixes, and I can say it doesn't have anything to do with either my OS, Windows 7, or hardware, driver or heating issues. Thanks in advance for the help!

P.S. I was unable to run rootrepeal, because I run a 64-bit OS, so I'm not including a log of it. I can also supply a MBAM log if needed, but it wasn't able to find anything.

This has been very frustrating because nothing seems to work. Other hardware plugged into the pci slots work fine such as the video card. I have tried adjusting options in the bios and even flashing the bios to a newer version but neither have worked. I had the newest drivers installed for the wireless card and ethernet port installed(realtek) but the hardware is not even recognized at all in the hardware manager. The only device with a yellow question mark was a device labeled as "SM Bus Controller". Can anyone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how to fix the issue?

I tried on another of my PCs running windows 7 and it worked fine appearing to download around 17 megabytes per second. This made me think it was related to windows as it was a windows 7 PC. Here are things I have tried to troubleshoot it:

I reinstalled windows 10
I installed windows 7
I made sure all drivers on motherboard were up to date
I swapped the PCI slot

Basically, I have an XP machine that was acting up. For some reason, WIN98 was loaded onto the machine by someone else (XP was originally what came on the PC). A new harddrive was also installed at the time WIN98 was loaded. So brand new hard drive, with bare bones WIN98, running unbelieveably slow. Did some basic troubleshooting, didnt seem to have any viruses or spy problems. Everything worked but it was ridiculously slow loading programs, opening windows, even just responding to mouse clicks. Long story short, formatted the drive, and tried to install XP.

The XP install also ran extremely slow, you could watch it copy each individual file! Machine is an HP Pavilion XT938 desktop, has 128MB memory, 80G hard drive, 1.3AMD Athlon processor. Should be plenty to run WINXP with no problems. I let the install run all night. After finally making it through the setup/configuration, it wouldnt boot past the welcome screen. I let it sit all night again just to see if it would go past, but it did not.

Tried another hard drive, tried other memory, same results. I am NOT very good with hardware related issues, but Im convinced this is hardware related. Where should I start troubleshooting from this point? Possible motherboard issue?

Thanks for any help.

A:Xp Machine Running Slow, Hardware Related?

Has it always had 128 meg of ram? That is way low for Win XP, it will run, but at a crawl. 256 is good, 512 is better. RAM is very cheap these days, I would try that and then go from there.But, if the computer has always had this small an amount of ram, and has gotten slower, there may be other problems.You could go to pcpitstop.com and try their diagnostic program, it will give you some hardware information.If you hadn't changed the hard drive I would also suspect virus or spyware and unless you are 100% certain the second drive was clean I would run and post a Hijack This Log. Especially do this if you go to pc pitstop and they say there are problems in this area.

But anyway, whenever I hook the cable directly computer to computer I get transfer speeds of about 9-10mb but whenever I run it through the hub I don't get anything over 1mb. Anyone have any idea why the hub would be slowing things down?

A:Slow Network Speeds

Replace it with a 10/100 switch or if you are on broadband, a router with built-in 10/100 switch.

Hubs let through selective traffic from one user at a time, whereas switches let through all traffic simultaneously.

It also sounds as if you have some slow 10MB NICs. Replace these with 10/100 NICs

Large Send Offload is a technique of improving network performance while at the same time reducing CPU overhead. Apparently it does not work very well, so it was suggested to disable it. If you would like to know about LSO, check this MSDN article from 2001 (Task Offload (NDIS 5.1) (Windows Drivers)).

LSO is an option located in a Device Manager under your network adapter, so this solution requires Administrator Privileges.

Follow these steps:
1.Open Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Properties
2.Under Control Panel Home located on the left side of the window click on Device Manager
3.You will get a list of all devices on your machine. Expand Network Adapters.
4.Find your Network Card and double-click on it.
5.Select Advanced tab. You will get a list filled with different options.
6.Select Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4) and set the value to Disabled
7.Do the same for Large Send Offload V2 (IPv6) if it is available
8.Click OK

After clicking OK, tried to send a file over the LAN network. Transfer speed started very slow, but it was gradually picking up speed. Decided to restart the computer and try to send that file again and this time it worked like a charm.

Now that sending of files worked as it should, also checked speed for receivi... Read more

I have windows vista home premium. Been using att uverse for about a year. last couple of months i've been experiencing connectivity problems on this computer. (all other devices connected to the wireless (another pc, wireless devices such as ipod itouch, cable tv) work fine. I would troubleshoot and it would give the message: Wireless network adapater atheros ar5007UG is experiencing driver or hardware related issues.

I checked and I do have the latest driver installed.

Sometimes computer connects and other times no and its become more frequent. in fact I have to restart the computer numerous times in order for it to work.

There are days I just stop trying after 5 restarts. I hope that doesn't damage the computer.

any suggestions?

Hi guys,
I have three computers on my home network:
(a) desktop in the office with ASUS USB-N53 adapter
(b) new desktop in the office with fairly old Broadcom PCI 802.11g adapter
(c) media box hooked up to TV hard wired to router

I recently mapped a drive on system A so that it could be shared with system B (they are side by side). Unfortunately, upon trying to transfer files the speeds are terrible! I am only getting between 500kb/s and 1mb/s.
Is this due to my relatively old wireless G adapter?

thanks :S

A:Slow Transfer Speeds over Network

It could be. You really need to use on both desktops wired connections. If you are going to use Wifi and transfer large files. You may want to invest into a Wireless-ac router and same for the adapters for the computers.

Wireless transfers only go as fast as the slowest connection.

Hey everyone. Computer is an X1 Carbon Gen4 with Win10 Pro. No recent modem/router changes. No software changes. No updates available through TVSU (at least that's what it says.. I use to have updates available every couple of days and it's said there were no packages available for my system for almost a month now)/Lenovo website. Windows updates current. All drivers should be current. For some reason, only on this laptop, I'm getting around 50Mbps down instead of my normal 230Mbps down. Just started within the past couple days. It's not location related, I've eliminated that possibility. I powercycled the modem and router. I did a factory reset on the router. I tried using Google's DNS (I had to do that on my MBP to get the correct speeds out of it on the 5Ghz network) and it didn't change. My upload speeds are normal at 20-23Mbps. Any idea? My iPhone and MacbookPro are getting correct speeds.

Hi,

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

hi folks, was wondering if the networking gurus here could shed some light on a pesky network speed issue that's been bugging me for a while now.
I have some large files that I'm trying to transfer over an 802.11n network via various high end routers and max transfer speed I get over all of them is 45Mbps, even though the routers are very close by and the
Link speed on both laptops is 300Mbps.

First laptop is a Dell M6700 with Windows 7 Professional, with Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205 a/b/g/n wireless card , driver Date 6/16/2013, v 15.9.0.5 , provided by Microsoft.

Second laptop is an Asus Q325UA (UX370UAR) with Windows 10 Home with Intel Dual Band AC8260 wireless card. (Driver Date 3/19/18, v 20.50.0.4, provided by Microsoft).

Between them I have a Linksys EA6350 router with latest firmware, supporting  both 2.4 and 5ghz.  and have set the network to 5ghz,  Since the Windows 7 Intel Centrino cannot support AC protocol, I have set the 5ghz network to Auto.  The
router has the latest firmware.

Hello everyone,
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old). I will be happy to post system specs if it helps diagnose this problem.

Please feel free to move this if it should be in the hardware section, I'm thinking it may be a hardware issue.

RELEVANCY SCORE 60.4

So when transferring files from one pc to another using copy and paste, why does it only say 2-3 maybe 5-6 or so..

I’m using windows vista, but it’s the same in XP when I was using it. I share a folder on network, browse to this shared folder using another PC on the network (same workgroup) and i copy and paste say a 600mb file. The transfer speed reports (in vista. xp don’t have this feature) that its around 3mb/s or so, whatever it says, it’s not "what it should be" regardless if its 100mbit(10MB/S) or gbit(100MB/s) network.

Now on the advanced config of the network adapter there are various settings that control the network adapter. Does one of these determine the overall speed or the transfer? Maybe a firewall or router is slowing the transfer; therefore a port should be opened? is so what port? Or are speeds slow due to windows..but where can I find information about such a bug, i mean iv looked and looked.

maybe I’m just not googleing the right thing

so anyway if someone knows anything that could help me speed up the transfer of data between two pc's on a windows network, It would be a great help.

Hi

I am transferring some files over my network using the Python SimpleHTTPServer on a Xubuntu box.

Code:

Code:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
The server is a mediocre, 4-5 year old machine AKA David. I don't have the exact specs to hand but it was bargain bucket in 2009

The client is a big powerful monster of a machine. Big games rig. AKA Goliath.

The router has a theoretical transfer speed of 300Mb/s. It's a TP-Link TL-WR841N.

My actual non-concurrent download speed is ~ 4Mb/s.

This isn't really my area and I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is? All connections are via Ethernet cable. David is connected via Ethernet. Goliath is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline Adapter which in turn is Ethernet connected. Over wireless, I am getting ~1.5Mb/s.

I'm not expecting the full theoretical maximum but surely better than 4Mb/s? Is there anyway to improve this? Why am I getting such a slow connection? I'm interested in the academic side of things here as well as the technical solution (if any)

My theory is that my rubbish-y old network card is throttling. Possible?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Slow-ish transfer speeds over network

Several things here. First, the NIC(s) used can affect the speed, even the driver version can have an affect. Second, how each NIC is connected and configured (ie: 10half, 10Full, 100half, 100Full, etc.).

Verify the configuration end to end. Also, the router itself, and in this configuration, the powerline adapter can/are likely further reducing the speed.

Try moving everything to the same room and test. ie: David > short ethernet > router > short ethernet > Goliath

That will give you the best possible results with your current hardware (assuming there aren't any configuration issues).

Hi
My PC's network card is configured as 100 Mbps
My NAS Drive is configured as 100 Mbps

My Home Hub 3 shows both connected at 100 Mbps, yet I'm getting a maximum of 1.3M transferring a file to the NAS.

Is there any way I can increase this ?
I get the same speed from my 20Mbps download from my DSL.

A:Slow Network Transfer Speeds on Local LAN

Your hub is probably whats causing the problem. Hubs are only able to run in 1/2 duplex mode so your speed is only 50 mbps.

100 Mbps (Mega bits per second) connection maximum theoretical speed is 12.5 MBps (Mega Bytes per sec)

A hub that runs in 1/2 duplex mode runs at 50 Mbps = 6.25 MBps

This is theoretical maximum speeds.

To increase you speeds i would suggest replacing your hub with a switch. If you want to increase it more add gigabit hardware to all your machines. That will give you a maximum of 125 MBps. On my Gigabit network I normally see network transfer speeds around 70-100 MBps.

I hope this helps.

No that does not mean you're leaking data. The TAP is a virtual adapter for the VPN connection that is apart of the physical adapter. So you're going to see traffic on both. If you're worried about VPN leakage do a online VPN leaktest.

With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.
Or it'll stay at 30.
More often than not, it starts at 30-40 then will slow to 15-20.

I've got all sorts of funky problems with my computer. It's a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop and was working fine when I got it. After playing some games on my laptop, my computer would begin to overheat to really high temperatures like 150 degrees or above. Every time it did that, my computer would slow down and while playing games it would slow the game down to like 1 frame per half a minute. After about 10 minutes it would recover and go back to normal. I bought a fan for my computer and it seemed to solve the problem. Then my computer would at times go up to 180 degrees or so without a fan. Now with a fan the temperature is pretty high like 150 or so but my computer would still lag for 10 minutes or so at a time. I've use tune up utilities 2009 to defrag my computer and optimize performance but it doesn't solve the problem. Even when I have nothing running in the background my computer does this.

I keep getting Spy Guard coming up saying that an attempt to change the Homepage is being made. I keep telling it to keep the old homepage, which has worked up until now.

I told it to keep the old homepage, then the computer threw a fit and stopped working properly! It crashed two of my browsers that I had opened, then when I opened another browser it took ages to open. Then I noticed the homepage had been changed!!!! Also there are some dodgy porn links turned up suddenly in my Favourites!!!

Now the PC is being deadly slow to do *anything* and keeps freezing up. If you put in an address in the URL, you won't get to it and will return to the homepage which is now http://nkvd.us/... It will come up http://nkvd.us/www.ebay.co.uk I ran ADAWARE, but it found nothing.

I did a Hijack This scan and I am hoping that someone will be able to take a look at it and see if there is anything dodgy on it Here is the log that I just did:

Thanks in advance for the help.Opened a word doc, but had a funny feeling it was loaded.I disable system restore, went into safe mode, cleaned tmp & cache and then used Panda Activescan. Reported that it cleaned a "Trojan.Win32.Small.js" virus. Rebooted back into safe, ran Kaspersky and Symantec online; Seemed clean,Logged back on and ran TrojanHunter. As I did that, McAfee Virusscan (which I forgot to disable during TH Scan) reported finding and quarantining 3 files including DNF.exe. Google search says its a Deadly Network Flood. There was no results on Google for the other filesHere's my HTJ.Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 12:47:40 PM, on 3/13/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16414)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\Ati2evxx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\WLTRYSVC.EXEC:\WINDOWS\System32\bcmwltry.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\cisvc.exeC:\Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework\FrameworkService.exeC:\Program Files\Network Associates\VirusScan\...

The other day, our family computer started redirecting web searches to other sites. Tried to scan with Norton but it would hang up in the temp internet folder. Tried to clean it but windows would reset. Since then, I have reinstalled Norton and a bunch of other web spybot type software in an attempt to clean. Also at the same time, a 1gb memory stick stopped working. Norton still does not complete a full system scan but AVG, spybot, adaware does.I think I have it all cleaned out, but if someone more experienced would please look at my hijack this log and let me know if there is anything else we can do, we would greatly appreciate it.Thanks!Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1Scan saved at 9:36:05 PM, on 8/22/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16512)Running processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MsMpEng.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccSvcHst.exeC:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\AppCore\AppSvc32.exeC:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\CCPD-LC\symlcsvc.exeC:...

On my desktop pc I am running windows vista and cant connect to the internet. I have tested the LAN connection with my laptop and it works perfectly. I have reinstalled network drivers numerous times on my desktop trying to get the connection going, with no success. I have come to a conclusion that the problem must lie either with the network drivers or the built in network hardware itself because my router is working fine.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

My computer has extremely slow download speeds, upload speeds are fine. Ping is always at ~10-20ms. (to Google) The problem has nothing to do with, my ISP, my router, my type of connection. I know this for a fact.


I've tried multiple network adapters. USB WiFi, integrated WiFi, connecting through another PC via ethernet, they all give the same result.

I'm guessing this is a problem with some software on the PC itself, as it seems to not be a hardware problem.

All other devices on the network have perfectly fine speeds, including Ethernet and WiFi connected devices.
I also cannot connect this PC to Ethernet, would take hours.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

A:Slow download speeds, Fast upload speeds. Other devices are fine.

In device manager check the status of devices under Network Adapters
