Hello, ladies and gents, the recapcha I got to join this site was "common homer" which seems quite appropriate and describes pretty much how I feel after seemingly breaking all of my hard work building this OS.


Possibly the scene where you see inside his mind and thought processes, and there is only a little monkey going round in circles in a little car.


I wanted to post this topic to try and get some expert opinions on the changes made by this program and to serve as a guide to find for anyone else who googles potential problems caused by this software if this software is in fact at fault here.


I know opinion is fairly divided on IObit, I have used their stuff since they began, but I made a rule ages ago to not use any of their registry changes or defrags or certain other 'tweaks' in fear of damaging my system, I am pretty sure I helped kill a couple of systems using iobit and others like it in the early days. It can be very handy for a great many simple tasks, especially for the layman.


I have put months of work in to this installation of windows 7 ultimate x64, including many program installations, customisations, rainmeter setups, you name it, it is a thing of beauty, I am trying to perfect it in order to make a backup I can keep and reuse. (No, system restore is not active, I thought it was, but it is not I can't use that to fix this, and trying to use iobit rescue centre did not fix the problem.)


Prior to this, I had to send my system interstate for motherboard replacement not once but twice, and was without it for a long time. I also had some HDDs die, I am a little fed up, which is why I am asking for help.


The OS is fully updated with MS, is activated, has been scanned by MBAM, and seems to be fine and not infected. I am fairly cautious, and use umatrix and ublock.


I have tested the internet speeds at speedtest.net with a different basic OS on a cheap computer, and they seem normal in the range of 


ping 23ms  dl 1.92 Mbps ul 0.85 Mbps


The OS I am trying to repair is now


ping 165ms dl 0.32 Mbps ul 0.08 Mbps
It was fine not long ago, similar to the other one, with max internet speeds of around 985kb/s download and upload of 95kb.

I applied only basic internet 'optimisation' as I understand little about internet settings, and wanted to improve them, and a minimal amount of system optimisation tweaks, I will post them here, If anyone can see which settings may have completely crippled the internet on this OS, I would really appreciate it, and would be happy to make the necessary adjustments to set them back to optimal range.


I tried using the rescue centre in ASC to restore these changes and rebooting both browser and computer, but it did not improve the speeds. I do not even know if the rescue centre actually resets the changes or not.


I  have included basic screenshots of the 3 categories of changes that were made. I am assuming that most of them are good changes, which is why I applied them, and many may be worth keeping, but I think that one or more of them has crippled the internet speed in some way.


If anyone can help me at all, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

Thank you for your prompt reply hamluis, and to anyone who has read this post. I can see that the reply is a standard response for requesting extended system info from users for diagnostics.
I am not comfortable with publishing vast amounts of personal data on a worldwide public forum, wireless network names, and those of neighbouring networks and user ids, I.P addresses, and so forth that is contained in a speccy file.
I have published basic info, if anyone is willing to offer any assistance that does not require detailed private info, I would be grateful.
