    I am running windows 10. When I boot normally with ethernet cable plugged in, internet speed is 4mbps. When I boot in safe mode, internet is 400mbps. Something is slowing down the speed. All other devices on my network are fine. Help, I cant game!

    Open Task Manager by right-clicking on the Taskbar > More Details > Startup tab, and then switch the "Enabled" to "Disabled" on all the Startup programs.

    Reboot and test.

    If everything is okay, start re-Enabling a two or three of the Startup programs at a time until you zeroed in on the program(s) causing the problem.

    Maybe a bad network driver. See if you can update that also.
