Pc has high ping when turned on last.

  Jrobbins 12:42 29 Mar 2017

So my girlfriend and I both have a desktop each, situated next to each other connected to the same network. However whenever mine is turned on after hers my ping skyrockets to around 400-500 where as usually it sits at about 32-35. My first thought was that she was running some program that took up a lot of bandwidth in the background, but when we checked she had hardly anything running at all, so I'm at a bit of a loss. I've restored my pc to try to clean up the files, but it hasn't made much of a difference if any. And our router (Sky) doesn't allow me to add any QOS options. Any advice or possible fixes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
