Based on comparing my upload speed between my computers, I think someone could possibly have the ability to monitor and hijack my PC. I have done internet speed tests from numerous websites on PC1(suspect), PC2, and PC1 in safe mode. I have tried switching ethernet cables between PC1 and PC2.


The result always seem to be:

PC1 - 50 mbps download, 10 mbps upload

PC2 - 50 mbps download, 50 mbps upload

PC1 in Safemode - 50 mbps download, 50 mbps upload, (Which made it even more suspicious to me)


I did not have any peer-to-peer applications running during the speed tests. Both PC1 and PC2 are connected to a gigabit switch, which connects to my router. I have windows 7 for my OS. Please help me figure out what's going on.


Edit: Nevermind this. Figured out that one of the default applications that came with my motherboard, Killer Network, was limiting my upload speed on all applications. Good to know! Please lock or delete this thread.
