Hi. Ever since I got this new computer ( about 2 months ago), the network has been going VERY slow, using 100% of one of my cores, making my computer useless for the duration of the network transfer.
Dell Inspiron 530s
320 GB HDD
Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 @ 2.83GHz
Windows Vista Home Premium SP1
I have tried many things that I have found on Google. NONE worked. Today, I needed to copy about 23GB (in one file) from an XP computer (6 years old, specs not needed) to this computer. It said 2 days remaining, and the computer was completely inoperable. I was desperate, so I disabled everything in startup except the three instances of "Windows Operating System." That still didn't work. I then proceeded to disable every one of my services, testing whether disabling them worked. "Background Intelligent Transfer Service" ("BITS") seemed to be the culprit to the slow computer/network. I disabled it, and the file has been transferring as I write this post, without any noticeable disruption, which I started about 5 minutes before I joined this forum. I would have left it at that, but a quick google search showed that some other programs/services use this service. Does anyone have any experience with this problem? Should I keep it disabled or is there another fix?
PS. My brother's computer (another Windows Vista Home Premium, 2GB RAM, 2.3 GHz AMD Dual core) has no problem with network transfer, even though "BITS" is still started...
PSS. The reason the file is so big is because It's about 1 hour of video at 25mb/s. (Don't worry, it's not pirated movies) I'm making a movie for my church, and the old computer is the only computer with a firewire port. (I know, I could still buy another PCI firewire card, but that still wouldn't solve my network problems)
PSSS. There is only 30 seconds remaining of my file transfer...
PSSSS. I don't know if this is the way to do multiple PS's anyone can correct me if I am wrong...
Thanks in advance for any help.
(The transfer is finished. 23 gigs in 25 minutes!!!)
