    Still more problems with my computer -_-

    Ok so im having more problems with my computer, this time I cant connect to the internet as fast as i usually would and whenever my wifi signal connects, it takes literally forever for anything to load. The only time i can go on the internet is through safe mode. I was told that each laptop has a wireless card but idk how to tell if somethings wrong with it or if it just the computer itself. Anyway to fix this?

    You're sure it's not your service provider?

    EDIT -> The safe mode thing is weird though, makes it seem more of a software issue. When's the last time you scanned your computer? (Malwarebytes is good for that)

    Ha! Yeah, that would probably be the best course of action.

    all bestbuy will do is send it to the manufacturer for repair unless you have a best buy warranty. And that's usually a charge to do that and takes weeks to get your computer back. Unless you're having problems with other devices on that same network, it's either a virus on your computer or the wifi component has gone bad. There are different virus detectors you can download. I only trust Cnet when downloading free software.

    Have you tried connecting an Ethernet cable from router to laptop? Unless it's one of those new ones without an Ethernet port. But if you have one and plug it in and you get the same results, then it's not your wireless NIC and we move to something else. If plugging into the Ethernet port works, then you have a problem with your wireless NIC.

    Another thing you can do if you're savy enough. Go into the command line interface in your laptop (don't know what OS or laptop your running) and ping or trace route www.google.com or any website you usually visit and see how fast the response time is. I know this might be over some peoples heads but hey, I'll just throw that out there because it's something that I would do because it would require the less amount of work on my part.

    Go start-->Run--> Type in msconfig--> Go to startup tab, disable anything you don't need to run on startup. It could be one of them making your internet slow. If your internet works fine in safe mode, then none of your parts should be broken. Must be something on your computer. If you have multiple firewalls/AV's installed, choose one of each and uninstall the rest.

    Network troubleshooting 101. Power down the modem and the router for about a minute. Power down your laptop as well. Hard wire the laptop and then boot everything back up. If your connection seems normal at this point, try disconnecting via ethernet and starting up your wireless connection. If the connection is subpar standard operation once more, there may be interference such as microwaves or telephones operating on the same frequency. However, having just been wired in you will be directly next to the router and such interference should be a non-issue. S

    So at this point, we can assume it's a software issue, as you are able to maintain a decent connection whilst in safe mode. I'm going to go ahead and assume in safe mode only the kernel and basic windows manager is loaded as well as any other specified software. And so I recommend killing processes one at a time until your connection is normal again. I'm not sure about in windows, but in a linux shell you can use pidof process name to get the process pid. From there you can simply kill pid or even the process name. If the process doesn't want to die, you can always jump to a kill -9 pid. I'm sure Windows being such a sophisticated operating system has such capabilities.
