Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1
4 GB RAM -
Pentium Dual Core E5700 @ 3.00GHz
Computer 1 year old.
I recently upgraded from 384kb/s ADSL to 3G @ +- 7Mb/s wireless internet. I then also read about "Free" Internet download managers, claiming to increase download speeds by 500%!
I decided on Internet Download Manager 6.1, and the results were amazing, until after about 14 days I starting receiving messages that the Trial period was to expire unless I buy.
Irritated, I then un-installed the IDM program, after which my computer slowed down noticeably, and my internet has almost come to a halt, significantly slower than when I had only ADSL.
Reading numerous forums, it seems to be a common problem after uninstalling IDM, which leaves a (trace?) on the system, slowing it down and sending ongoing info to the IDM developers.
My livelyhood depends on the speed of my computer, and I have no idea how to start solving this annoying problem.
Please, ... if anyone can help, without me having to do a complete re-install.
