Wireless speeds slow, but fast in safe mode?

Hi all ive had this problem since i got my pc, basically my wireless speeds are around 0.5mb when i do a speedtest on windows, however on safe mode it will be 12mb. there's obviously some sort of conflict which i have struggled to identify.

here is what i tried

- fresh installs, although at the start the speeds are fine but once i install more drivers/programs it will do it

- installed different wireless drivers

- disabled certain processes/services

You might try uninstalling the wireless connection software that installed with the drivers, you should see it there in add/remove programs.

Let Windows handle that part of the connection instead, it usually works better that way.

Most likely it's something on your start up list or which ever A/V software is installed. You can use autoruns to narrow it down.

The driver installs properly and with no conflicts? No exclamation marks or anything?

So if you uninstall that driver your network speed returns to normal?

after further testing

i decided to open up my case and resit the pci express wireless card in its slot and strange enough the speeds are now fine with all drivers installed

weird?
