How to increase Internet speed in Windows 8?

Tech geek January 27, 2013

I dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 on my PC. When I use Internet on Windows 7, it’s fast and speedy, but when I use Internet on Windows 8, it is very low.

    Load Chrome with no addons and try that, it may well be an incompatable addon thats causing the problem. If there's no change, create a new profile and try again.

    Do you maybe have unnecessary toolbars or junk programs installed on Windows 8 browsers?
