Windows 7: Slow download speeds, Fast upload speeds. Other devices are fine.

Slow download speeds, Fast upload speeds. Other devices are fine.

My computer has extremely slow download speeds, upload speeds are fine. Ping is always at ~10-20ms. (to Google) The problem has nothing to do with, my ISP, my router, my type of connection. I know this for a fact.


I've tried multiple network adapters. USB WiFi, integrated WiFi, connecting through another PC via ethernet, they all give the same result.

I'm guessing this is a problem with some software on the PC itself, as it seems to not be a hardware problem.

All other devices on the network have perfectly fine speeds, including Ethernet and WiFi connected devices.
I also cannot connect this PC to Ethernet, would take hours.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

also check internet options:- select Connection's tab and check if it shows any Dial-Up/Brodband connection, also click on LAN Settings button
Reboot the system in Safe Mode With Network and test speed then
Create a new user account(Admin) and test speed
