    Thanks guys!
    I downloaded MBAM and scanned with rootkits checked but there were none found.
    I still have to run the DISM and SFC.
    Tried the task manager but the network column only rises with loading new images in the browser.
    Tried the boot without services and that makes a difference but as yet haven't nailed the guilty service yet. Thankyou very much for your help. Still have some of the fixes you all suggested to implement and will let you know how it goes.

    One other thought comes to mind, Boomerang . . .

    Do you have a VPN installed? Some of us have found that ISPs tend to throttle our network traffic when a VPN is installed because they can no longer see your network traffic; thus, can't feed you ads.

    Just a shot in the dark, Chris. One more thing eliminated.

    Hmmm
    Everything seems to be working. Using chrome instead of Firefox definitely makes a difference. Weird. Everything seems to be working but it has in the past few weeks. A sort of on again, off again. But now I have this thread to cycle through fixes.

    Thanks again for all your help :)

    Glad it worked out for you. :)

    So to get this straight to help others out; Besides a malware scan and changing browsers, did you try anything else?

    Hi HippsieGypsie
    Ah yes.
    • Resetting Network Adapter (Winsock Reset) -post 1
    • Download Firewall Software by GlassWire -post 4
    • Press the Windows key > Type > Task Manager > Expand the window > If it’s the first time opened, down at the bottom click “Show more” > It should open to Processes tab > Look at the Network column to see what’s using it the most. Please report that/those percentages. -post 6
    • Which browser are you using or does it matter which one you use if getting the same results? (it does make a difference) -post 6
    • If the problem persists, open Command Prompt (as Admin) and type each of these commands and allow each one to finish. This resets your TCP/IP stack.
      ipconfig /flushdns
      nbtstat -R
      nbtstat -RR
      netsh int reset all (The following command was not found: int reset all.)
      netsh int ip reset
      netsh winsock reset (needs a restart to impliment) -post 6
    • Not sure where this one came from. Start run command, type msconfig and run. Next dialog under services turn on 'Hide all Microsoft services' at the bottom. Disable all services. Turn on sets of 3 (to narrow it down because you need to restart in that state to test) services to find the group, then test each one of the three to find the culprit.

    Thankyou once again.

    You're welcome, boomerang. So it seems it was Firefox that was the problem. Don't use it myself, but I understand there are various versions of it you may want to try.

    You may want to mark this thread as solved. Good luck to you.
