Windows 7 network/internet slow resolved

A friend of mine kept saying networking is slow in windows 7 and over the years I have heard it from many people,so some fixes I found,

run->cmd(with admin privilege)->netsh interface tcp show global

in the output if the Receive Windows Auto-Tuning Level : normal


netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled

now see the output of netsh interface tcp show global

Receive Windows Auto-Tuning Level : disabled should be showing up

Remote differential compression should be off as old operating systems does not support this feature,it basically compresses data over the network

to do this you have to go to

control panel-programs-turn windows feature on or off and then clear the box beside remote differential compression

disable ipv6 from your lan adapter at it's properties

set duplex settings to 10mb/s half duplex

see for suspicious process in task manager

ipconfig /flushdns,net stop dnscache,net start dnscache commands should be useful,at the end netsh winsock reset should get the job done although a restart is required.

try using ccleaner for clean up of temporary files and registry clean

try using malwarebytes for a quick scan

go to msconfig and delete unnecessary programs at start up

make windows theme the classic one so that some ram frees up

for advanced scanning use hijackthis software

I guess that's it then.
