SoftWare/HardWare That Slows down Computer Performance.

Recommended Posts

Name software/hardware that slows down your computer performance or slows down your internet speed?

I'm on Adelphia's 6MB/760 Premium Package and normally i get advertised speeds' well thats when i disable my Firewall, AV,  Spyware/Ad ware apps and  bypass my router.   Last i checked i was running at 5.9MB with all apps disabled' by the time i plugged my router in and enabled all security apps my test speed had dropped to 3.5MB and when Stealth is enabled on my firewall my speed drop to 1.5 MB

I'm running Kaspersky Personal pro 5.0.391 with Anti Hacker 1.8.180   Kaspersky s a great security add-on but oh boy does it slow down my internet speed.....

Have you tried a different cable?

no i haven't...... if you mean company no' or if you mean cable as the one coming to my modem no'  its my apps that are slowing me down thats a fact....

I imagine a defrag of C: would help some, Ray.  I didn't see it there, but how much RAM do you have?  Is anything overclocked in your system (CPU, Vid card)?

i clean my computer daily and defrag once every 2 weeks or sooner i also have 1 Gig of ram and i do need to upgrade my Video card.. Everything looks good except that i do need to upgrade some things...
