This is a follow up to my question ID27663122. My OS is win7 Prof 64 bit and my pc is a Dell Vostro 220. I use Verizon FIOS. My pc is connected to the router by ethernet. Despite all the marketing by FIOS my internet speed is far from satisfactory. A speedtest.net showed a download speed of 3.6 Mbps and an upload speed of 20.41 Mbps.
There was a suggestion that something must be leeching onto my internet access thus slowing down my upload, download or to load a page.
The q is whether there is any way of finding out what and which parasites are piggy backing my internet access. I have disabled all Add Ons. Thank u.
