    Windows 10 Upgrade degraded my download speed. Help


    Hi everyone!



    I've recently had the courage to upgrade my windows software from windows 8.1 to windows 10 but it has been causing me a lot of issues lately. My internet is extremely fast but my downloads seem to take over an hours just to download files sizes at around 300 mb? I'm extremely confused and the system lags a lot. Just attempting to save a picture onto my desktop lags the system a little. I have attached an image of my internet speed.

    Windows 10 Upgrade degraded my download speed. Help-90be75ad-6139-40bb-b860-3717a5e9e46b.jpg

    However, when I'm actually downloading a software, the speed is at 406kb/s and sometimes even lower.

    I am a video editor and I need to run heavy file sizes on my system but ever since I've upgraded, windows 10 has been so undependable lately that I'm afraid I might not be able to carry out my work in the future.

    Here are my device specs:



    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6600k CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50GHz

    RAM: 16.0 GB

    System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

    Edition: Windows 10 Pro

    Version: 1809



    System specs:

    (I can't remember a lot cause I built it 2 years ago based on a Youtube channel)



    Motherboard: Asus Z170 ProGaming

    Graphics: MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 (Version 399.24)

    SSD: Samsung EVO 256GB



    I've tried to clear disk space on my SSD, I've tried to speed up my cpu by clearing temporary caches. Any advise for me will be appreciated. I am an extreme noob so please be basic about your instructions if possible. Thank you!

    Well, first things first then. Have you scanned for viruses yet or checked task manager to see if something is consuming download speed?

    Secondly, are you aware of if the site you are downloading from throttles download speeds?

    And lastly have you checked to make sure your drivers are up to date?

    Nothing wrong with your speed. After you installed did you check for updates as there were some fixes. How much disk space have you got as after an update it will hold maybe 30+gig of old files. Try samsung util SSD Tools Software | Download | Samsung V-NAND SSD | Samsung Semiconductor Global Website to check drive and I have same drive and there was a recant firmware update which can improve things.
    What do you use for video editing I have youtube channels

    Hi, yes I've updated my window drives, cleared old window files in my C drive and it was still the same. I decided to unplug my WD Green 3TB HDD to see if that was the issue and it appears that everything is fixed. My computer speed was even faster than before I upgraded from windows 8.1 to windows 10. I guess its the issue with my HDD? I tried plugging back my HDD and the speed from the booting up of my computer to the transferring/downloading of files dropped significantly close to 0.

    I am using creative cloud to edit my work. After effects takes a lot from the cpu so I was a little worried.
