Windows 7: Getting only half the broadband speed being sent to router

Getting only half the broadband speed being sent to router

Hi All
I know I am lucky to have a 100mb internet connection (virginmedia) But I speed test and only get about 47mb (This is using my PC hard wired directly to the superhub).HOWEVER, when I run my PC in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING I get around 102 to 104mb ( which is great if I only used safemode).
Therefore something is draing my connection. I have scanned for Malware, Viruses ans disabled most things in the MSCONFIG but still no improvement.

I attach 3 screenshots which may be of those who know about these things
Any help would be great

Thanks

Rob

My first guess would be to blame AVG. Try starting up with out AVG then testing for connection speed might help.

Hi and thanks for the prompt reply.
I stopped avg and have not noticed any speed improvement.
Tried renewing the winsock settings but again nothing

About all you can do is uncheck the start up programs one at a time and keep testing.

You might try looking in the task manager and the resource monitor to look for any program that is using up bandwidth in the network.

If you can post the ipconfig/all from this machine I might be able to spot other problems.

Could be problem with your ISP, contact them and most ISPs with good customer support even send in a Technician to diagnose the problem =)

Thanks guys for all your help and support.
At 03:35 this morning I suddenly woke and thought. What If I start the PC in Safe mode with Networking, check all the services running. and list them on a spreadsheet then restart in normal mode and do the same.
I can then do an internet search on what each service does and if its
Superfluous.
I will let you know if there is a real bandwidth Killer on my system
Thanks again

The ipconfig looks good.

You might try looking at the task manager to see which running process are using your network and slowing down the connection.
