    Hey there, new to the forums. Just finished building my new computer yesterday - i installed windows 7 and all the motherboard drivers etc - everything went smoothly. I then plugged in my ethernet cable but saw that in normal mode my computer had very slow internet. I went into safe mode with networking and tried the internet there and it was its normal speed. Obviously something is booting up in normal mode that is stopping/limiting the connection. I uninstalled norton (came with the motherboard drivers) using the uninstall norton tool, i also uninstalled any other virus protection and disabled my computers firewall but to no avail - it's still real slow. Please someone help! Thanks.

    Thanks so much, turns out it was "cFosSpeed System Service" that was causing the issue, i disabled it and have been getting super fast connection.. fixed in less than 10 minutes!

    excellent thanks for letting us know - will be useful to others searching to see that the clean boot works as a means to identify an issue
