I don't know where anything is on this mess, I've tried. Clicked on JR's link and got the 'driverstore' with easy credit card payments lmao.gif that loaded some crap on. Kept trying and finally got speedtest. I'm trying both Mozilla and exploder same shït.

I'm using Win8 and Palemoon and don't have any of those issues. Must be some kind of nasty on your computer.

The easiest way to find a program or file on Win8 is to slide your cursor to the top left corner and click on the Start screen icon when it pops up. When the start screen opens you don't need to click on anything. Just start typing.

Also, if you update to Windows 8.1 you can have the old Start button back.

I've got a hacked copy of 7, eliminates many bs processes, spy stuff, things that slow boot speed.

Was annoyed a few things no longer were supported by third party for xp, so I did the next best thing and got a hacked version.

Vista was terrible, has to be a conspiracy about os and releasing garbage to justify an update.

8 is just for mobile devices right?

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

How you go internet - lan or ISDL modem? If lan (cable is on lan card too) then you must know that default win settings are very restricted. First must "hack" tcpip.sys (to open more conections - mone is 256) - use tcpip-patcher.exe for that. Then you must optimize the lan card - TCPOptimizer3.08.exe will do that for you - http://www.speedguide.net/tcpoptimizer.php

If nothing work well after that then is win fault.

The reset command is available in the IP context of the NetShell utility. Follow these steps to use the reset command to reset TCP/IP manually:

To open a command prompt, click Start and then click Run. Copy and paste (or type) the following command in the Open box and then press ENTER:
cmd
At the command prompt, copy and paste (or type) the following command and then press ENTER:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Note If you do not want to specify a directory path for the log file, use the following command:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Reboot the computer.

If again have problems reset WINSOCK

TCP/IP stack repair method for use with Windows XP:

Hope this info help

No. It was designed for tablets with touch screens but MS decided to use it as the next OS.

That metro/desktop interface is like two entirely different OS's that don't belong together.
It's as if they said hey... this thing is just ƒükkêd up as hell, lets call it a day.

That is not speed ~ it's prolly actually slower than dial-up. damned.gif


It is possible that the settings for the NIC got selected to rock-bottom in error. (Unlikely, but possible.) Temporarily connect via ethernet cable to compare the speed.
