Yes or No

Due to me being kind of lazy and what not, I am thinking about formatting my PC(again) to get better speeds, because my line is fine, its just my PC. I don't have any important documents(school hasn't started yet), only thing is a few ripped CD's and my napster songs which can be redownloaded. I was careless last time. So, do you guys think I should, or shouldn't I. I don't think I should because the only thing I am missing is the 500+ kb/s download speeds, but I would like people's feed back on the matter. Oh, I don't download much stuff, but I do like the spees.

well i would try restoring all as default before a format, but format computer once a year is not a bad thing to get it running smooth.

to get windows default TCP settings, just open cablenut and click delete cablenut tweaks and click save to registry and reboot
