  1. This is my mother's PC
    When I was on my own PC in a video game (quake) i noticed my latency spiking wildly from 20s-30s to 200 and more

    I hand a hunch that It might be my mothers so I unplugged her internet connection at the router, and the pings stabilized immediately.

    I went to see what she had running, she was running netflix and nothing else that uses the internet. We have a 30mbit down and 768k upload connection and we have never had a problem running netflix and video games simultaniously. Something is amiss

    I ran hijack this and attached a logfile from her pc.
