Hello everyone. It literally took me 20 minutes just to register on this website, so I am pretty hopeless right now.
I came here because I have no any other solution and I need a professional advice..
This is what I did.. I wanted to lower my ping a bit on an online game, so like any other stupid kid I went to google and searched for a way.
What I found was a "simple" trick or whatsoever on regedit, all you need to do is add few lines. But when I did that, my network got destroyed. If I had a ping of 100 before, I've got 13k now. Loading a video on Youtube takes hours. Loading a simple page like this became unbearable.

I'll copy exactly what they said to do:

A few hints to lower your ping in many online games:
1) Run regedit and find the following location…
2) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) named “TcpAckFrequency” and set its value to “1″ under the desired interface.
3) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) named “TCPNoDelay” and set its value to “1″ as well.
4) Next, find this location…
5) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) naned “TCPNoDelay” and set its value to “1″.
6) Close regedit, reboot, and you’re done.

I tried deleting those lines, setting them to 0 to 2, back to 1. I tried using my regedit backup to delete what I did, I tried doing a system restore to a day ago.. a week.. even 2 months back. And nothing. Nothing can change back my internet, I don't know what this was. But it just ruined my internet forever,I'm clueless. Please help me if you can :(
Thank you.

Let's try a couple basic things first

Start > cmd.exe


ipconfig /all > Desktop\net.txt
ipconfig /release >> Desktop\net.txt
ipconfig /renew >> Desktop\net.txt
netstat -a >> Desktop\net.txt
netstat -s >> Desktop\net.txt

Press <enter> after each line

Once you have done this, copy and paste the contents of the net.txt on your desktop into your post

Note for staff: This should probably be moved to Windows 7, it doesn't appear to be a malware issue
