Hello everyone. So, It literally took me 20 minutes just to register on this website, I am pretty hopeless right now.
I came here because I have no any other solution and I need a professional advice..
This is what I did.. I wanted to lower my ping a bit on an online game, so like any other stupid kid I went to google and searched for a way.
What I found was a "simple" trick or whatsoever on regedit, all you need to do is add few lines. But when I did that, my network got destroyed. If I had a ping of 100 before, I've got 13k now. Loading a video on Youtube takes hours. Loading a simple page like this became unbearable.

I'll copy exactly what they said to do:


A few hints to lower your ping in many online games:
1) Run regedit and find the following location…
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\
Parameters\Interfaces\
2) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) named “TcpAckFrequency” and set its value to “1″ under the desired interface.
3) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) named “TCPNoDelay” and set its value to “1″ as well.
4) Next, find this location…
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSMQ\Parameters
5) Add a new DWORD (32-bit) naned “TCPNoDelay” and set its value to “1″.
6) Close regedit, reboot, and you’re done.
I tried deleting those lines, setting them to 0 to 2, back to 1. I tried using my regedit backup to delete what I did, I tried doing a system restore to a day ago.. a week.. even 2 months back. And nothing. Nothing can change back my internet, I don't know what this was. But it just ruined my internet forever,I'm clueless. Please help me if you can :(
Thank you.

After using ERUNT or whatever the registry backup was and the restore points may I presume that the newly created values are NOW NOT THERE.

I presume when you say you deleted the lines, you mean you actually used in regedit the right click and delete - Edit tab delete - as you say YOU TRIED DELETING

Before we start please list ALL you have tried

You didnt ruin the internet. what you did however was mess up your registry and thats why things arent working right.we always advise on here unless you really know what you are doing there is rarely a reason to touch anything in the registry and never use any kind of registry cleaners either.what you might have to do is do a reinstall of the operating system to make things right.

MAY be right but do not proceed down that route yet - at least that is my advice

This is all I tried:
Deleting the lines ( As you said , edit tab delete )
System restoring before I touched the Regedit.
Entering safe mode and using my Regedit backup ( Yes, I backed it up before messing with it )
Doing a total virus/internet scan for problems.
Cleaning up my internet with Ccleaner+Tuneup.
Re-installing all my internet drivers.
Re-plugging my modem.. ( Yes yes I know. But I'm hopeless. :rolleyes:)

I'm sorry but I really didn't understand what you meant by this post.. Can you explain?

And tuneup is just a simple program that searches for problems in your computer, and cleans up space.

What I meant was which TUNE UP program is it please
TuneUp Utilities etc
Most of them are unwanted and dangerous to the health of the computer.
If the Tune Up program you have used allows it revert the changes it has made and my advice is DO NOT USE it again

Download this and run it
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network-Tweak/WinSockFix.shtml

Please ensure you are downloading winsockfix
and not the cleanup advertised above
Save it on another computer and then install it and run on this.

See if that restores the connection if not go device manager
click view and click show hidden devices - are there any warnings against any devices


I am online for about one hour, so I will stay with you and respond to each post ASAP.
I am then offline until,about 2000hrs UK time

It downloads this 1MB file in 1KB's

Edit: I downloaded your program and did the fix, restarted my computer. And there's no change yet

PLEASE take my advice TuneUp Utilities - do NOT use it.
Its only assured capability is to adversely effect your computer

See this later for your information. - to be attached shortly

In the meantime


What does that mean please
I uninstalled Tuneup already.
And it means that the file you gave me is only 1 Mega bite, and it took me a long time to download it..
