After weeks or trying to figure out what was going on, i finally reformatted and said ■■■■■ it.
I am running Vista Prem SP2. Upgraded from XP Home SP3 (yeah not much of an upgrade I know).
As long as I ran v5 on either OS, thr was never an issue with my net or gaming. I have posted about v6 issues with gaming and I had given up for using CIS on my gaming machine. But I wanted to try it out again since 6.3 was released.
Well the gaming part i got that figured out!
But now, as soon as I install (not using the DNS), I am ok with my net speed for a few days. Then it is cut 1/5 of what I should have. I have 10 mb/s DL / 1mb/s Up without CIS v6+ installed, once I install and a few days go by. I am reduced to 1-2 DL / -250k up.
Since friday, i have done everything I could do, to try and figure out wtf was going on. my last thought was that my ISp had put a throttle on my IP for this machine. So I waited till the last frustrating moment before I called them.
I called last night, and talked with thr IT guys/ladies. Well everything they told me to try, I had already done (excpet remove anti virus/firewall). So I thought to myself, I had this issue b4 and was so frustrated i just reformatted and wated 2-3 days waiting on all updates and things. And with v6.1 and 6.2, even uninstalled didnt fix it right off, was a few extra things to do and get my net going again. Well previously with 6.1 and 6.2, I just did a system restore back b4 i even installed them and was back to v5.
Anyways, I took CIS6 off my pc, used CCleaner and clean up reg and things. got rid off all presence of CIS, and rebooted.
I went to several websites that i use regularly for speed and ping test and low and behold, my net was back to normal. Ping went from 300ms++, back to 12-20 on local ping, to under 80 pinging LA and San Fran (whr my gaming servers are.)
So to make sure, that it wasnt my PC or something. I reinstalled CIS (vs 6.1/6.2/6.3 - been up all night testing this) and as soon as I updated, ran quick scan. I would run my speed test. All 3 had my speed at 1.6mb/s-2.8mb/s. But as soon as i took CiS off my machine, back to 10/1 speeds.
I even tested with v5 and speeds are 10.1 with v5.
I am clueless as to why this is happening and would love to go back to CIS, used it up until this new UI came along and now I an ■■■■■■■ trying to use it on my main machine. Either i use it and dont game, or game and dont use it. Sorry but I am going to game, So for now, sadly im only using MSE till i can figure this out.
No offense to any1 here - but MSE makes me feel like i have a Condom on with holes in it.
I cant go back thru all that testing, that much coffee can kill sum1.
TY all, I am not sure how to fix this or even if it can for me.
