Windows 7: what can i stop

what can i stop

Hi,
when I test my computer in safe mode I get 17-18 Mbps d/l speed. But when I run it in normal mode these speeds drop to 3-5 Mbps. Is there some where to find out how to reduce these background processes? I use win-patrol and stop unnecessary start up programs. I am running Win & on a new Computer . I also ran these tests wirelessly on my Laptop running windows ultimate and they where virtually the same results? I contacted my ISP and they where of no help.
Thanks for any info.

This can Depend on what programs you have

What is your Anti-Virus and Firewall? Also what browser do you use?

Many Thanks,
Josh

Hello there, open an elevated command prompt (CMD) and type in:

"netstat -b" without the quotes, press enter and you'll have a list with the processes that are using your internet.

Well that's an interesting find there, I have never personally noticed a huge difference. If I had to guess safe mode is loading generic driver types while full boot is using the assigned proper driver you have loaded for a device. At first glance that's the only thing I can think of that is affecting the net speed. There is no service that should be consuming so much of your network resources that it represents a 75%+ decrease in network performance.

All I can really offer is that explanation though. Hopefully someone else will have something to offer you in the way of a actual fix.

Will do and then I will post it here if that would help;

EDIT:
Got the list but I really don't know what I am looking at...

Kaspersky's realtime scanner doesn't run in Safe Mode. From what I know it has a scanner concerning web access. Turn that off for the time being and test.

OK. I have tried all the suggestions and I have narrowed it down to Kaspersky Internet Security 2011. If I disable it and run the test I get 21 Mbps d/l speed and a 17 second ping. I have emailed Kaspersky to help me find a solution. Has anyone encountered a similar KIS problem?

I will keep you posted .
