Windows 7: Slow Internet

Slow Internet



Please read the entire post.


If you are having this problem, the solution I found was reinstalling Windows 7. If you don't want to do this, then here's a list of all the solutions posted by users:

-Run Malwarebits
-Run Ccleaner
-Open the comand prompt as an administrator and type sfc /scannow



I've been having this problem for two weeks now. The Internet connection is super slow all of the sudden!

I have three computers connected to the same network but only mine is slow as hell!

This problem happens from time to time, but it only lasts for a few hours.

The pages take a very long time to load. For example, to load the page so I can post this post, I was able to see the BBCode behind the smilies, it showed the code instead of the picture.

When I visit YouTube, just to see a video I have to refresh the page like 5 times just so it doesn't show me an error and play the video.

I usually use Google Chrome, but I've tried Internet Explorer and Firefox and the connection speed doesn't change. I am now using Opera because of its turbo feature that helps to load the pages.

Please give me a solution!

Run a scan with Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download and also clean up the pc with CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download and see if that helps first. It sounds like you have some sort of malware and or that you need a cleanup of the system.

I would second running Malwarebytes. It should help out a lot especially when used with CCleaner. Let us know what happens!

Can you open up an Elevated Command Prompt by running command prompt as administrator and running a systen scan by typing sfc /scannow in the prompt and see if windows has any integrity violations.

Doin it right now. Hope it works.

I really dont want to go to my last resource: reinstalling windows!


Edit: Didn't work, it said that it found some errors that it could not fix and savedn an error report in some file called CBS.log and I cant find that file. Last night I felt like installing Ubuntu and I did it. mThe most amazing thing is that in Ubuntu the internet isnt slow as hell!! I think I WILL reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate x32 bit
