    Welcome to TenForums @theteck and thanks for the warning.

    Apparently the whole purpose of SmartByte is to prioritise video over all other network activity. You'll have to ask the employees whether that was for Skype or YouTube :)

    ...all too often our computers are busy with email, Microsoft updates, and other software downloads. These updates consume your networking bandwidth and cause stuttering video and poor video resolution... SmartByte detects and prioritizes your critical video and communication traffic to ensure your online video experience will be fast, smooth and at the highest resolution your network can support.

    Not too surprising if you consider the rise in video conferencing and webcasting in business environment I guess but, yeah, sounds like it goes a bit overboard from theteck's perspective of it impacting otherwise normal network traffic.

    Is there no way to calibrate or adjust (other than uninstall) this junk to the priority you prefer?
