Windows 7: Internet speed loss, can't find solution

I can try, it tends to not load because the internet speed is that bad. I'll leave it load for a few minutes and see if I can get a result.

I've changed ports on the router, moved the computer and used someone else cable and tried using a separate wireless NIC. The problems appears to persist over all the options.

Managed to get a score off of speedtest. Download 0.09 Mbps Upload 0.17 Mbps

A quick update. After several suggestions of the same thing I removed some RAM sticks. I have 4x8gig sticks. I'm now down to 2 sticks and the internet is currently behaving in a favourable manner. It's not at full speed, but it's now in a usable state at around 30mb/s so down about half.

thanks good how much is your board rated to be able to use with the cpu?

For windows 7 64-bit editions, Home Premium can use up to 16GB, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate can use 192GB. so you may have to much ram?!

It's a bit of a weird one that. The manual states a max of 12gb, after doing research online for my motherboard it stated a max of 24gb. Win 7 does pick up all 32gb though. It's a first gen i7 socket 1366 motherboard. Asus P6T ASUS - - ASUS P6T

Now I'm aware of Windows limitation on home premium I'll leave 2 sticks out until I upgrade my system again.

If the speed was normal after reinstall until a certain program or update was installed it might be the culprit.

This can be determined by reinstalling following these same steps to get a perfect baseline Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

After installing the necessary LAN driver to get online if it's not provided, then run all rounds of Important and Optional Updates after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3).

Then run for day or two before installing any programs - besides Flash, Java, Adobe Reader. Instead spend the time setting up your desktop, copying in files.

Once performance is confirmed with only Updates, start installing programs slowly over time with enough time in between each to test performance. This should isolate the exact Update or program that's causing the problem, you can System Restore to get before it and post back here for help resolving it.
