Windows 7: PERVERTED: 70 bytes/sec after system restore

PERVERTED: 70 bytes/sec after system restore

Hi to all the Forum-Members !

I really would appreciate your help to the following "perverted" situation:

I installed W7 without any problems, everything worked as proposed, Internet access OK. After the installation of some additional software, I decided to save my work. So I did an image backup of my system-partition with the W7 backup software.

So far, so good, again no problems. For testing reasons, I then performed a restore from the system backup, using the special restore-CD, created by the backup program. Again, everything was OK, W7 was restored without errors and booted normally.

BUT after that restore-process, I had to find, that my internet-connection speed had dropped to about 70 BYTES/SEC (!!!). I checked all settings, but could not find any problems. I use internet with a LAN-Router, my normal speed is about 12.000 bytes/sec. I "played around" for several hours, then gave up and installed W7 completely new.

Again everything worked fine, Internet speed OK. Now guess what: I did a system image backup, then restored this image and now my internet-speed again is creepy 70 bytes/sec.

As I do not know how to proceed, I would appreciate any idea, to get my internet speed to the normal 12.000 Kbytes/sec again. Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Richwa


PS: I use an Asus-Board (P5WDG2) with an Marvell Gigabyte network connection, all drivers installed, W7 shows connection is OK.

I have not tried the backup myself yet, but did you restart your system after performing the restore?

I wish I could help, but sorry. This isn't something I would be able to help fix.

Although I think you may have ment 12,000KB not 12.000KB (could be wrong)

Thanks for the answers.

1) Yes, I have restarted after the restore (no other way possible), I even shot down the PC and started again - no change.

2) I really ment 12.000 Kb, my mistake - Sorry.

Well, first, I think you are wise to try to get a backup plan in place. I am sorry what appears to be a simple plan is not working.

You don't seem to be alone. Slow after Acronis Restore - same description as you - but waiting it out seemed to fix it.

If me, I would try a winsock repair following these Vista instructions: Repair and Reset Windows Vista TCP/IP Winsock Catalog Corruption. If that does not work, then another install of Windows seems in order, then skip the image backup for now, and just backup your critical data. Then hurry up and wait for a permanent solution.

Hello Digerati !

First of all: Thanks a lot for your help.

I did a repair of the Windows Vista TCP/IP Winsock Catalog, just as described. Sorry to report, that nothing was changed, Internet-speed is still nowhere.

I simply do not understand that behaviour, thinking that a partition-image is something, that is not "flexible". Either the process of imaging works and creates a "working" (=restorabe) image or not, then the whole process of restoring fails. But how could it affect settings, as it is not based on files ??

Anyway, I will do as you suggested - Starting all over again and avoiding image-backups.

Thanks again
