    Please fill out your System Specs:

    How to fill out System Specs for eightforums.
    See here: How to See Your System Specs with "System Info"

    Also, lets see what starts at boot:

    Download and install CCleaner from the following link:
    CCleaner - Standard

    During installation, uncheck the option to install the Yahoo toolbar.

    Click on Tools (wrench ICON) and Select the following BUTTONS to create two (2) text files:

    * Uninstall > Save to text file (install) – bottom right corner of app window
    * Startup > Save to text file (startup)

    Locate and open each saved file in the ‘Documents’ FOLDER:

    * Copy and paste the contents of each file into your next post (2 files).

    Maybe there are some processes that use your internet connection, for example, a program has an automated process to do the updates.
