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

Question: 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.)

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

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

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!

Mod Edit: Moved to appropriate forum ~~ boopme... Or maybe slowly over a week or two.
 I have an older computer, Dell P4 - 2.8GHz 1.49GB Ram running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP3.  It has an 80GB harddrive (71.1 GB) and 25.0GB free.
 I updated FireFox from 17.... to 23.... to see if that would help and... nope.I download a file using Utorrent and it moves it to an offline USB drive hooked to my WNDR3700-100NAS router.  I have a Motorola Surfboard SB6141.
 Utorrent version 2.2.0 build 23071
 I have been set-up like this for awhile now and things have been fine.  Even with Utorrent open, not uploading or downloading, you could surf the web with no issues.  If it was downloading a files, you could still surf the web with no issues.  I only get about 2.5mb down on my file a 22mb connection. Now, not so much.  With it just open, I can't do hardly anything and it takes forever to load even the front page of Yahoo and I can't click on any of the links.  If I'm downloading - forget about it.  I upgraded to 3.2.2 build 28500 and same issue.  I then installed 2.2.1 build 25154 which is what i have now installed and the same issue.  I had to close it to get to this site.  I run Avira Free Antivirus Product Version 13.0.0.4045 and Malwarebytes Anti Malware Pro version 1.75.0.1300.  Both have Web Protection / Website blocking turned off.

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.

i have attached my HJT log below. many thanks in advance for any and all suggestions! i would like to avoid having to reformat again....

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,
~Gun

Answer:Internet connection suddenly slow on brand new computer

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and Download and Execute filesI would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. 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. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallHowever, if you do not have the resources to reinstall your computer and would like me to attempt to clean it, I will be happy to do so.Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.Please let us know what you have decided to do in your next post.

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!!)

Be sure that your HJT log is checked by a respondent who has a 'gold shield' to the right of their name/moniker. If one does not respond here, close this Thread at "Thread Tools" using "mark solved." Then recreate a Thread at the "Security" forum. Wait at least two days for a proper response here, however.

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.

Hello, this is my first post :D.
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
and as im new to the forums im not sure if i posted this in the right place

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. I tried this Hijackthis thing, and this is my log:

Initially windows 10 was running fine until suddenly (I'm using Chrome) errors such as "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET" started occurring, while periodically the wifi kept disconnecting . After searching for and following some solutions this issue was fixed however now the internet is very slow. Admittedly I'm not technically adept at all however I believe something I changed may have made the wifi slow. I did the following things:
- Cleared chrome's cache
- Changed the DNS to google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (which I am currently using) from the default (IPv4)
- Tried to update network adapter drivers (said there were no new versions when using the 'automatic search')
- Used cmd to run commands such as "ipconfig /flushdns"
- Tried performing a clean boot
- Also followed these instructions (http*://wind8apps.com/fix-error-code-dns_probe_finished_no_internet-windows-8-windows-10/ without the * )
- And maybe some other things that I can't remember
If this problem can't be resolved I'll just have to go back to windows 8.1, the internet is unbearably slow and I can't use ethernet instead of wifi.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

++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

Windows XP Pro


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.

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.

Answer: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.

Running older PC Clone 2.0 Ghz Dual CPU Pentium, 1GB Ram Win XP Home Edition system.

While navigation on Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, system runs extrememly slow and/or crashes. When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7.

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.

Answer:Windows 8 computer suddenly became slow, 100% disk usage

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?

Answer:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

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

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
 

Answer: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.

Hello and welcome to TSF.

Please note that more than one round may be needed to properly eradicate malware. In co-operation with the cleaning process, please: do not uninstall/install any programs unless asked to do so, to make it easier on us as it is more difficult when files/programs are appearing in/disappearing from the logs;
do not run any tools or scans other than those requested;
follow all instructions in the order they are presented;
if you have problems with or do not understand the instructions, ask before continuing;
stay with this thread until given the All Clear, as absence of symptoms does not always mean the machine is clean;
do not attach any logs/reports, etc.. unless specifically requested to do so.
All logs/reports, etc.. must be posted in Notepad making sure the word wrap is unchecked. (In notepad click format, uncheck word wrap if it is checked.)

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.

The following HJT log follows, as does a start-up list. Please make this machine run faster.

Answer:suddenly slow internet

Hello, hatsushiba
Welcome to the TechSupportGuy Forums. My name is Thomas (Tom is fine), and I will be helping you fixing your problems.

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. Doing so could cause changes to the directions I have to give you and prolong the time required. Further more, you should not be taking any advice relating to this computer from any other source throughout the course of this fix.
If you do not understand any step(s) provided, please do not hesitate to ask before continuing. I would much rather clarify instructions or explain them differently than have something important broken.
Even if things appear to be better, it might not mean we are finished. Please continue to follow my instructions and reply back until I give you the "all clean". We do not want to clean you part-way, only to have the system re-infect itself.
Do not start a new topic. The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
Please set your system to show all files.

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
 

Answer: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.

That log is ancient do the following

SpywareBlaster 3.3 http://majorgeeks.com/download2859.html
AdAware SE 1.05 http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe - double click the DL file
And let it extract to its default folder C:\Program FIles\HiJackThis, run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the log here.

OK. So all of the sudden on my laptop my internet is really slow I use ventrilo to talk to a couple friends from World of Warcraft. It will be anywhere from 3000 ping to 18000 and it normally was around 50-60 so its not normal at 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.
My hard drive is not full and i don't have a ton of unused programs in system tray.

Prior to 7-29-2010 my speedtest.net download speed was consistently above 0.50 Mbps and is now averaging about 0.10 Mbps

Last week, on 7-29-2010, my computer's internet connection speed took a dive. Now, webpages suddenly don't load consistently anymore. I'm running Mcafee Anti Virus 2010 Plus. On this day Mcafee reported finding "FakeSpypro" and immediately removed the threat. That was the first threat detected in months of perfect performance and no complaints from me. Mcafee has detected no threats since then, either.

I have performed multiple spyware scans using several programs. No threats exist on my computer.

Hi, I live in South Dakota and I use a small company called Knology, that is rapidly growing and has alot of business in the South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota areas. I used to always get 2+mb download (sometimes as high as 5mb), and 500-756kb upload. Lately, my download has REALLY started to jump around. Most of the time its starting to hover around 0.3mb a second, but at times it jumps back up to about 1mb a second. I was wondering what the possible causes for this were. I don't require all that fast of download speed, but now that I can't even watch youtube videos or download music without waiting and waiting its starting to make me mad. The only thing I can think of is our aged modem that we've had since I don't remember when. I don't even know what brand it is but the model number is : 60678EU. When I google that model number it says it is a Siemens Ambit 60678EU so i will go with that any help would be appreciated. If you need more information just ask. I'm getting my speeds from speedtest.net and just by looking at how fast I download things on my computer/ps3/xbox/ect.

EDIT: i suppose i should maybe mention that it is high speed cable internet.
 

Answer:suddenly slow internet

there's a lot of different reasons it could be slow...

they've over-subscribed users in the area, which means more people are sharing the same node.

they've over-subscribed, and don't have enough bandwidth on (a) backbone(s).

the copper to your house may have moisture, which could cause issues, or otherwise degraded the signal.

internal coax could be aging causing a degraded signal.

could be your computer.

could be a router, if you have one.

there's a couple.

Hello,

My internet has suddenly become slow on my laptop to the point browsing is tedious and at some times impossible. I'm connected to a wireless network which is know performs correctly as on my other computer runs at good speeds from it. My laptop is practically brand new, only a few weeks old.

I've run full scans with MSSE which have shown nothing, other then a java exploit a few days before this problem occured. This exploit was deleted.

I know there could be other problems with my browser etc but i can't find any from searching the internet.

Any suggestions would be accepted.

Thanks alot

Answer:Suddenly slow internet

Starting with a virus scan always makes sense. If nothing is found then try the following:Go to start>Run Type Prefetch then hit enter. A window will open, then press ctrl+A. Everything in the prefetch window should turn blue highlighted. Now Press Ctrl+D. You might get a confirmation window asking if you are sure you want to delete these xxxx items. Click yes, then after they?re all gone, close that window.Right click the recycle bin. Select properties and then move the slider bar all the way to the left so that there is no disk space taken by it. Click Apply and then Ok. Now go to Start>All Programs>Accesories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Chose the C: drive, then click yes to any warnings/Confirmations. Check all boxes when the disk cleanup window opens. 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. It will ask to restart the computer. Go ahead and restart it.When it starts booting, press F8 immediately until you get a screen that has a list of options. Select safe mode. Go to Start>All Programs>Accesories>System Tools>Disk Defragment. Then Select the C: Drive to defrag. This will take a while depending upon the size of the hard drive. Do not use the computer while it is running defrag. After it completes, restart the system like you would normally. After everything loads a window will pop up say... Read more

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

I've been having trouble with my internet connection lately. When I start up my computer, the speeds are what they should be. But after a few minutes, it gets really slow. On websites that usually give me 500+ kb/s, I'm only getting 15kb/s. Youtube videos load about 5 seconds and then just stop. I've tried different things and nothings helped. What should I do?

I have a cable modem and have never had any problems with fast internet connection. A few days ago the web became very slow. It takes about 60 seconds or so for each page to load, no matter how complex or simple it is. 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. What could be the problem?

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 a broadband internet connection and I usually get speeds of 250+ kbps when downloading from most sites and I can usually get 3 or four downloads of 100kbps when using p2p networks. but all that changed a week ago suddenly im getting speeds of 20-50 downloading fron sites and 80 at most downloading from p2p. my brother uses the same line and he is getting normal speeds on his bb modem. for about 20 mins last night my speeds went back to normal then died again.I have never had internet speed problems before and I dont see how my modem could be faulty as I havent mishandled it or messed with settings in any way recently. the only thing I have done recently to do with the internet is reset web settings in tools/internetoptions/programs/resetwebsettings as the last stage in manualy removing a virus. It is incredibly annoying having a broadband system with speeds of 50-80 max as my brother glaots about his speedy speeds =D. Any help or suggestions on this matter would be very welcome as I am at my wits end. Thank you for reading.

Answer:Internet suddenly very slow.

 RobertDunne......  So both you and your brother are connected through the same router ?  So it would appear the issue is not the modem or the router ......but rather something going on with your pc. Are you sure you have corrected the virus and or trojan issue ?dl65

A few days ago my mom needed to cut off the power in our house. My laptop was running (not that it matters) but the wireless internet was running as well. She turned the power back on a little later and ever since then my internet has been running very slowly. Like dial-up slow. It's frustrating and I've tried turning the computer on and off and disk defragmenting it. ​
 

Answer:Suddenly Slow Internet

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.

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:

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

Answer:internet suddenly slow

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 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.

Thank you in advance for any help that can be given.

I'm having an issue with my PC. It's very slow when it comes to web browsing, especially on certain sites, and also has issues on some particular sites (for example when trying to use my netbanking I get an error when doing some transactions). The other computers in the house don't have the same problems which basically rules out our internet and network connection.

I recently got so frustrated with it that I did a complete re-install of windows and kept everything fairly minimalistic, but it didn't help and the same things occur since.

I use Google Chrome primarily as my internet browser, but the issues I have occur also in Firefox and IE.

I have AVG and Malwarebytes installed.

Hey I recently bought a new computer that is much better than my old one in stats but its not acting like it.

Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Intel Dual Core E5200
2.50GHz
2GB RAM

Now it was running ok to begin with but then the internet started having problems. It kept dropping out or fluctuating in speed and nothing seemed to fix it. It didnt happen on my old system it sat nicely at 54MB/s all the time.

Then the rest of the computer started going slow to start up so i got rid of some start up programs and desktop items which didnt seem to do much. And now ive noticed that when songs are playing in itunes they skip seconds every now and then.

Also when i click for programs to come up after i wait till everything is started up properly i have to wait a minute or two before they open. And burning DVDs has doubled in how long it takes.

Any ideas of what could be wrong, ive scanned for viruses using Avira and spyware using SUPERantispyware, ive cleaned registry using Registry easy and removed all unnecesary crap using CCleaner.

It got suggested that my computer was going slow because of AVG8 so i got rid of it and with got Avira but it slowed up again.

Hello, my computer has been extremely slow on boot and my desktop has been hijacked with a message about changing it to a website. I also have a program called "error fix" showing up on my desktop and I have no idea where it came from. I've run Malware Bytes twice on the computer with numerous problems found. After running it the second time, I got a message saying I needed to run CHKDSK which I ran. Also, my internet is running very slowly and I just got a message that says "A program on your computer has corrupted your default setting for Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this sietting to your original search provider, Live.Search (search.live.com). Internet will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providors."

Here is my Hijackthis Log, if you need the MBAM logs, please let me know and I will post those as well.

This is my first time posting a question on bleeping computer. We are so thankful that you are out there to help us and not rip us off. I think my computer is infected. My desktop starts up very slowly, my internet connection is slow (it's slow in pulling up websites and some never come up). I'm getting lots of pop ups (even though pop up blocker is enabled). When I go to open the control panel, a flashlight pops up as if it is looking for it (it eventually does open but it takes a while). I had a problem at one time with a lot of POS.TMP files and followed advice from posts on this site to get rid of them. Well, my current problems started when a friend downloaded a music program. I believe it was called Soundman. When I noticed the computer acting funny, I went into the control panel and deleted it along with some other programs I found (PPC Booster, P2P Max, Ron Tool Adsoftinc, Wyzo, Eco Bar). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hey, basically computer's been a bit slow and tried clearing some stuff and done other things, but still no luck, to make things worse internet's been a lot slow and when using either firefox and internet explorer. For example when going on youtube some videos would freeze in the middle and i would have to reload the page, and sometimes takes ages to load a page.

So here's my DDS log and hopefully the problem can be diagnosed, thank you.

Hello, i'll be grateful if you could help us with a problem that we are having with our laptops at home. Let me to explain you, my wife have his own laptop at home, as I have mine laptop too, both of the computers share a wi-fi internet conection. I'm not sure of what's going on but the internet conection it's extremely slowly, sometimes when we reboot our laptops there is no internet conection. According to our ISP there's no problem with the internet conection, they said it could be something with the laptops.

Now, It's true that the two laptops are more slowly, specially my wife's laptop, it takes too long for any processes, I always take a look to the running processes and it seems like there are too much process always but I'm not sure of what is good and whats isn't.

I decided to attach The HiJack log from my wife's laptop, maybe with this you could help us to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your time!

I'd love your help with this. I often help friends with their computer problems. I have installed more RAM, reformatted drives, etc. Here's a question: when a person reports that their computer is very slow to go to a website, and there is sufficient RAM and a DSL hookup, what makes it slow? Isn't it likely that it is the ISP, NOT the computer? I suspect that the friend's 4-5 year old computer needs a "tune up."
thanks!

Hi all,

This is my first thread so if i make any mistakes do point it out.
So my problem started about a week ago. I noticed that my internet became very slow suddenly. I was using interenet explorer before this and I thought changing to firefox would help but the problem was still there.
My internet is not slow Im using an adsl2+ connection, I just think that it takes very long for a website to respond because sometimes things load fast, and most of the time everything just takes forever to load and it times out sometime too. I cant even attach files for my gmail.
One more thing is that ive noticed is my local area connection starting to act funny. when i reboot my pc or turn on from sleep mode, i always get this limited connectivity sign and when i click on the repair it, it always says that it failed to obtain new ip address. I always put it back to sleep and turn it on agian until i somehow get internet connection back. Thats all I can think of right now.
Ive done the tests you asked for which I've attached below.

Thanks in advance guys,

Hi there

Not sure if this is better off here or in the networking forum, but thought I'd try here first.. :)

For the past few days my internet has become extremely slow to load webpages (even Google takes several minutes). I have tried doing a system restore to before the problem occurred but no luck. I have also used CCleaner but this didn't help either.

I have done scans with Spybot, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malware Bytes to see if there was anything there that might be causing the problem, but they only flagged up a couple of issues and fixing these hasn't solved the problem.
However, something else to note is that Malware Bytes freezes as soon as I try to run a scan in normal mode, although it worked perfectly in safe mode.

I also had a similar problem when trying to use GMER as instructed in the sticky. The first scanning method also caused the computer to freeze during the scan, and the second time I tried I just got an error message saying a problem had caused it to close. It worked with I did the second method (sections and C Drive), so this is all that has been attached.

Also, webpages load as fast as they used to when I tried browsing using safe mode with networking, so again it does seem like the problem is with my computer rather the wireless itself?

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty much completely computer illiterate so I'm sorry if I can't explain this problem or understand any advice particularly well..but this is pretty urgent as most of my work is done on this computer/the internet.

I'm not the sole user of this computer, I woke up a few hours ago and my roommate tells me that the internet suddenly slowed down to a ridiculous speed, we haven't come close to exceeding the data usage from our provider. We use DSL broadband, not wireless. Some pages partially load, some pages do not load at all and some load completely but after a really long time. When I open a youtube vid a fraction of it loads before it stops, then when I click to skip a bit of the video the same problem happens (but sometimes the video completely loads...). I only use chrome but the speed is the same on IE and firefox as well.

Maybe a year or two ago, a computer guy installed all the antivirus things and programs necessary when we previously had problems. Not sure what it is....but an ESET Nod32 frame thing appears every time the computer starts for a few seconds so i assume (?) that this is our antivirus. Again, pretty much retarded computer-wise here haha. I find ESET nod32 in the start bar to see if maybe i can click it or run a scan or something but after I click it nothing happens at all....

Answer:Internet suddenly ridiculously slow

If you have separate modem and router test with a connection directly to the modem.

Beyond the above test of the router it may be very difficult to further isolate the source of the problem if you cannot test your internet access with another computer and cannot test your computer with another internet access.

What speed are you supposed to be getting, and what do you actually get with a test such as Speedtest.net?

Hi,

I'm having problems with my internet lately on my Dell Inspiron with Vista. I've been getting frequent disconnects, and slow speed. I connect via a router. My other laptop and desktop do not have this problem which leads me to believe this might be virus related. The anti-virus program I use is Norton 360, and its turned up nothing but a few tracking cookies. I've also run malware bytes which turned up nothing too. Might there be another reason as to why my internet has slowed? I can post a HJT log if needed.

Ty for any help.

Hi tchspprt18,

This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

Since you have Norton 360 installed, make sure that the Windows Firewall is disabled, and also make sure that you do not have any other real-time, third-party security applications installed. Having more than one real-time security product installed can cause conflicts with Norton 360 which can cause slowdowns and leave your system vulnerable to infections..

I would suggest that you follow the instructions in the link below to ensure that Norton 360 is updated and configured correctly.

Troubleshoot slowdown with Norton 360 installed

Thank you,
Mike

hi,

My internet at the moment is really annoying me. I have tried absolutely everything a tech-noob would to fix it

It was monday night when it started playing up. I literally have had it right now. To watch a simple 1 minute long video on youtube I will have to wait about 10 minutes before it is fully loaded.

It takes about a minute to load an internet page and it is not just my computer, it is also happening on all other wireless devices and wired (3 laptops, 4 phones, ipad, ipos etc.).

I have seen on some forums people ask to post a tracert, i have found out how to do it but just looks like a mixture of numbers and words to me so it is below if you need it

I have Orange broadband also if that helps.

Hi everyone,

I'm on a Dell Studio 15 with Windows Vista. I'm fully updated as of yesterday.

I generally use my Blackberry as a tethered modem, but a few days ago the internet basically became non-existent. I've gone through all the normal reinstalls and fixes for the tethered modem access...this problem is different.

Windows can find no problem with the connection, but pages simply stick while they are loading. I'm using a public wifi connection right now and the connection is incredibly slow/failing, and giving me strange errors when I try to connect to sites I normally connect to (one was "this website uses incorrect compression", but I seem to have fixed that with a cache clear in FF).

I use IE 8.0.6 and FF 3.6.3.

As I'm using it right now, when I go to download a program in IE or even look up the About IE info, the windows that pop up are acting funny...not closing when I click the X, giving me a not responding error, and acting like they are trying to close but are unable to do so.

Here is my HijackThis log.

Thanks!

My ISP is Verizon FIOS with a desktop hardwired to the modem/router and a laptop with wireless connection. I am using Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 Anti virus and both IE 7 and Mozilla Firefox 3.6.12.

A few days ago the laptop started taking "forever" to load both browsers and all websites. Strangely enough, the desktop is loading at an acceptable speed. Thinking that the issue could possibly be with the wireless, I hardwired the laptop. This did not improve the connection speed. I need help!!!

Note: A recent virus scan did not detect any threats..

My computer used to download fast- I would say an 8MB file would download within 10 seconds. I have Comcast high speed internet. A week ago, however, it started downloading extremely slow; I scanned my computer's performance with testmy.net and it stated that it was downloading at 12kbps! Web pages are also affected. I've scanned my computer with Spyware Doctor 2010, Malwarebytes, CCleaner and Disk Defragmenter. Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes both couldn't find anything. I've even restored my computer to its factory settings after backing up my files. Even after all of this it remains slow. I know it can't be my ISP because my desktop computer is fast. I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide me as this is my school laptop that I use!

I will run you through what I did on the day it started being slow:

I posted my resume on Craigslist.org - started receiving massive fake job posts from them. Thought it could have been a virus causing my internet to be slow but the scanners didn't pick anything up...

I ran a chkdsk after restarting my computer because it was being slow.

I updated my Java.

Could it be my registry? I was told that messing with my registry could cause more harm than good so I only used CCleaner; something I found many users to recommend. It picked things up and I cleaned them but it's still being slow. Also, Spyware Doctor has a registry scanner and it didn't pick anything up.

So Today, a few hours ago i decided i was going to clean things up a bit on the computer, so i ran raxco perfectdisk defragger, disk cleanup, ccleaner/ccleaner registry fix a couple of times and windows defrag. So after that, the computer was running amazingly fast, but the internet was suddenly really slow, and youtube videos especially are taking a very long staggering time to load up, when usually my internet connection is average, i have unlimited downloads on my contract so it cant be that and its the temporary internet files and cache either, just cleared it all. Any help would be much appreciated.
 

Answer:Suddenly Slow Internet Connection

Hi:Is this a wired or wireless connection?
May we see a speed test when slow ?
http://www.speedtest.net/
Boot up in safe mode with networking.Any change ?
Would not hurt to download and install current adapter driver from your pc makers web site.

Answer:Internet is suddenly extremely slow

There's so many variants of coolwebseasrch out there now, let's make sure none are present here.

Go here and download CWShredder:

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html

After downloading, close your browser, open the application and click Fix (not scan) and let it do it's thing.

Then, go here and download AdAware and read how to initially configure it:

http://forums.techguy.org/t164246.html
After installing, download current updates, then scan your system. Everything AdAware finds is safe to delete.
Reboot, then start HJT (keep browser closed) and check the following entries if still present, click Fix and then REBOOT.

My computer used to download fast- I would say an 8MB file would download within 10 seconds. I have Comcast high speed internet. A week ago, however, it started downloading extremely slow; I scanned my computer's performance with testmy.net and it stated that it was downloading at 12kbps! Web pages are also affected. I've scanned my computer with Spyware Doctor 2010, Malwarebytes, CCleaner and Disk Defragmenter. Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes both couldn't find anything. I've even restored my computer to its factory settings after backing up my files. Even after all of this it remains slow. I know it can't be my ISP because my desktop computer is fast. I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide me as this is my school laptop that I use!

I will run you through what I did on the day it started being slow:

I posted my resume on Craigslist.org - started receiving massive fake job posts from them. Thought it could have been a virus causing my internet to be slow but the scanners didn't pick anything up...

I ran a chkdsk after restarting my computer because it was being slow.

I updated my Java.

Could it be my registry? I was told that messing with my registry could cause more harm than good so I only used CCleaner; something I found many users to recommend. It picked things up and I cleaned them but it's still being slow. Also, Spyware Doctor has a registry scanner and it didn't pick anything up.

Please help!

My internet has become 'dial-up' slow the last few days and I have no idea why.
I recently got a new modem, but aside from that everything is the same.

Occasionally, the connection will get lost entirely. I'll get a message saying that a network address can't be assigned (or something similar).

In the meantime, I'm using my wireless connection (which is fine) to get online.
But I do want to figure out why connecting directly to the router is acting weird.

Any help?

To begin with, my internet speed was about 4mbps, at non peak times through wifi. Now suddenly, I've been getting 0.35mbps down through wifi, and 1.2mbps through ethernet. My ISP is Orange (EE) and I personally believe they've been throttling our connection one way or another, for it to go down so quickly and stay there. The downstream rate I've been getting through my router is about 3000-4000 kbps, so either it's something to do with my router, or it's my ISP.

Anyway, I have sent a complaint to my ISP, regarding poor internet speeds and incredibly high ping.

Regards,

Nath.
 

Answer:Internet has suddenly become appaulingly slow

is this happening on multiple devices ?

have you disconnected everything and connected directly to the router by cable - and then made sure the PC is not running any updates etc
then do a www.speedtest.net and a www.pingtest.net a few times and see what sort of speed and quality you get.

also, if you log into the router configuration pages - you may see a status page, which is monitoring and displaying the upload and download speeds

Hi,

Two days ago i started having some internet speed issues. The speed droped from 10MBps to 4MBps. It jumps up and down from time to time (sometimes i get 1MBps,sometimes 6MBps and sometimes 8MBps). I am using speedtest.net to check the speeds. So far i have tried :

Reinstalling the drivers,and using newer and older versions.
Switching the network adapter.
Disableing firewall,av and other apps that use internet and windows updates.

The speeds are fine on my other pc,laptop and my smartphone (all checked using speedtest,i get about 9,60-9,80MBps). Any ideas what might cause this.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Internet speed suddenly slow

You could try Booting in Safe mode with Networking, then doing the test. That would eliminate any programs causing the issue that you may not know about.

Just something to try.

If you don't know how to boot in safe mode, tap f8 during startup.

Over the last few days my internet speed has plummeted.  I'm using Dell Inspiron 7548 with Windows 10.  I upgraded 4 months ago to an SSD when my hard drive crashed.  My ISP is Time Warner (getting ready to be Spectrum) and I am supposed to receive up to 300 mbps wireless speeds.  When I first began receiving this speed I was able to get around 180 mbps when I ran speed tests.  However, now I get anywhere from 3 to 30.  
 
Pages are very slow to loud and whenever I stream video it plays choppy even if the streaming bar displays fully.  I can type in blanks and it takes seconds to display what I have typed.  I ran a speedtest on my wife's macbook and she got 330 mbps so I don't think the issue is my connection or service but instead my computer.  Let me know what I can do...  Thanks in advance.  

Answer:Internet suddenly very slow...Thank you in advance for help.

How is your Dell laptop connected? Have you tried wired to the router? If you disable the internet on the Dell, are offline programs slow or effected? 
 
Also, are you still using Mcafee plugin? Saw in one of your older posts:
 
"McAfee WebAdvisor McAfee, Inc. 6/10/2015 4.0.316"
 
Last, when you installed the SSD, did you clone your HD or do a new install? If clone, did you ever get a clean bill of health from the previous viruses you had?

I had an imac connected via ethernet cable as well as a laptop and a desktop connected wirelessly but I have had to disconnect the imac 19 days ago and it was sent back to Apple. The laptop and the desktop are still connected wirelessly and have worked perfectly well with the imac connected and after I disconnected it.
Now the connection speed has dropped from the normal 14mbs to just over 1mbs. Orange have confirmed the speed on the line to be 14mbs. I have changed the filters for new ones, no better. I have not changed any settings anywhere.
Why should the speed drop like this? and what can I do next to resolve the problem?

Answer:internet suddenly very slow after working ok.

Just checked router speeds, download 5.3mbs, upload 1mbs.

Recently, my internet connection has seemed pretty slow, I ran a speed test at www.speakeasy.net and my download speed was around 300kbs and my upload speed was about 400kbs. Normally my download speed would be around 4000-6000kbs, and nobody else in my computer is affected. I'm not sure what may have caused it.

My operation system is Windows XP and I'm using an onboard network card, I tried using a different network card only to get speeds so slow I couldn't even browse the internet. The problem is neither my ethernet cable or the CAT 5e socket I'm plugging the cable into. I've also used Avast antivirus to see if perhaps a virus or something like that was causing this problem, but no dice.

As of last week my internet seems like its been going off and on. When i start it up it takes a while to goto my homepage ( google.com ) and then ill goto another website then it just won't load anymore! it will say connecting... at the bottom and then finally it will start going for another few seconds then it will stop connecting again. its very frustrating and annoying. i didn't change anything in my computer or cable so i assume its some kind of virus activity. I also noticed one day that when my internet goes off for a second as said before i go look at my cable box lights and theyre all off..then all the lights go back on and it goes again for another few websites then the lights go off again.. i don't think its doing it anymore but thats just something i saw.
