Windows 7: Internet connection progressively slowing down?

Internet connection progressively slowing down?

Hey guys,

I've bumped into quite an unusual problem.
I've noticed yesterday evening that the internet connection on my desktop PC is becoming progressively lagging.

All I need is to restart my PC and it gets back to normal, for a short while at least.
It does not seem to be a network problem, since when I'm connected via the laptop, even at the same time as the desktop is lagging there is no change in speed.

I connect my desktop to the WiFi via a D-LINK WUA-2340 USB.
I am using Windows 7 Professional on an Inter Core i5 2.67Ghz, 4GB RAM and a Gigabyte P55-UD4P motherboard.
I have been using the same hardware configuration on the network for quite some time now with no problems.

A couple of days back I flashed my BIOS and updated the drivers for the Gigabyte P55-UD4P. I do not know if these changes are interrelated.

Insight would be highly appreciated!

Why is my Internet connection so slow?

The first thing I would check is the AntiVirus software that you use.
Check for any malware or Virus
