Windows 7: Speedy DSL using Safe With Networking, bogs down with normal boot.

Speedy DSL using Safe With Networking, bogs down with normal boot.

Hey everyone--first time caller, long time listener...

Having issues with my ethernet connected DSL. Speeds come fine to the router/modem (TP-Link W8980) but bog down from there to my laptop (HP 8460P). Tried everything I could think of--new cables, different ports, updated drivers, etc--nothing helped. CCleaner ran and Malwarebytes has nothing coming up as suspicious. I do run accountability software (Covenant Eyes) and thought that might be the culprit, but after uninstalling and running without it for several days I saw no increase in speeds. Using Chrome browser.

The only way I can get the speeds I'm paying for is if I boot in Safe with Networking. Then it all works fine--which means there's most likely something running in my 7 Professional 64 bit background that's throttling the works...

The only question is, what? Is it a process? Service? Attached is the hijack this file. If anybody has a suggestion, please let me know. This has been driving me nuts forever. Gone around and around with my ISP, router/modem folks, Intel, you name it without any solutions. Glad to get you any additional info you need. Thanks.

Hi and welcome.

I would perform a clean startup to see if you can identify what is causing the issue.

EXCELLENT advice! Went through the process and found Dropbox to be the sticking point. I had it set up to sync automatically, and apparently it was pulling more juice than I thought it was. Duly removed from the startup process, and now all is humming along nicely. Can't thank you enough--I've been struggling with this for weeks, trying to find a solution. BRAVO!
