Decreasing internet speed

I have a very annoying problem, I even tried to re-install Windows (Which didn't work I still have the same issue) where I experience my download speed dropping and dropping until its down to 0, but the thing is whenever I try it on my dads laptop or another computer it works but mine seems to keep this annoying internet speed issue and it's really pissing me off, so does anyone know what to do?

Thanks in advance.

Are you connected wirelessly? If so, you should try ethernet if possible or vice versa.

Have you installed the network drivers? If not, can you post the model of the network card if you are not using the motherboard one?

Are they the latest version from the manufacturer website? If not, you should try upgrading. If that does not work, try reinstalling the driver.

Then try reinstalling it. I am not sure how to, but you can either wait till another member comes to tell you how to or search it up if you don't know how to.

Hmm maybe it is a problem with the driver? Try installing an older version because there might be a problem with this one. Also try running a scan with your antivirus, and also try downloading https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/ and run a threat scan. Remember to uncheck the free trial of the premium.
