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
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.
