Recently, the internet connection on this Windows 8.1 computer has become UNBEARABLY slow. I started speedtest.net about 15 minutes ago, and it still has not loaded. When I tested yesterday, we had a download speed of 0.57 Mbps and an upload speed of 11.98 Mbps. All of the other programs seem to work fine, and the computer itself is still fast. However, I think it may still be a computer problem, because all of the other devices on this network have no problems (except for the other Windows 8.1 computer, this OS is a joke). This problem seemed to come out of nowhere, and I cannot think of any possible solutions.

AAAny help appreciated.




Edit: 20 minutes, and speedtest.net is still not loaded

Edit 2: Now 25 minutes
