New to the forums here. Did some searching and couldn't figure out my issue so I figured I'd start a new post.
I am having an issue where my bandwidth seems very limited on only one user account. I normally can get 35-50Mb/s down, 10-12Mb/s up (which is what I am paying for). Recently, I have been getting <1Mb/s down, 2-3Mb/s up.
I am running a wireless network, all other devices run at good speeds.
Things that I've done to trouble shoot:
-Reset wireless router.
-Comcast refresh signal.
-Ran Microsoft Security Essentials full scan, found a problem with Java, fixed it (I think). Re-ran scan after cleaned, comes up normal.
-Created Test user with Admin privileges, when testing via speedtest.net...I get normal performance with new user (30Mb/s down).
-Turned off Windows firewall, no change.
-Boot into safemode brings back good performance to main user account.
-Very few Processes running in task manager, all seem to check out as normal.
-Drivers are all updated
Any thoughts? Occasionally it will jump up to normal for a short time, but will return to slow speeds eventually.
If it helps, this is what I am using:
EVGA 650ti Boost
8GB 1333 Ram
TP-Link 300 PCI wireless card
Thanks for any help!
