acer pc problems re speed

  johnnyrocker 21:53 30 Apr 2016

for some time i have had problems with this machine, in that after a couple of hours use the internet speed drops from 75mb to about ten or twelve mb,if machine re booted it returns to correct speed and will continue for the rest of the evening. this is a daily ocurrence and ocurrs without fail, i tried a friends recommendation to try safe mode which works faultlessly for hours on end. i recently added MS10 in the hope of a slution but no change. any advice welcome but not too technical please

regards johnny

cable or wifi?

if Ok in safe mode, sounds like drivers.

Also check device - properties -power tab - set to never switch off.

i am still having the same problems in as much as the problem starts after about an hours use, as said earlier a re boot resolves the issue for the evening, has previously worked ok in safe mode without a problem, got the usual security stuff etc but would really like a peaceful evening, all help greatfully received with thanks
