I have a Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S. Windows 8. Chrome. I live in a university residence, and so I have no access to the modem and therefore have no wire to connect with. I use wifi only. According to speedtest.net: Ping: 37 ms Download speed: 1.09 Mpbs Upload speed: 2.62 Mpbs My link speed is 14.5 Mpbs. As you can imagine, downloading things takes forever. Youtube videos are blurry for a while before clearing up, and have split-second black screen periodically. Generally, the internet connection is slow on my laptop. But when I use other peoples' laptops in the same room, it's much faster. I have CCleaner, Avast, and Malwarebytes. I clean and scan my laptop regularly. Possibly unrelated factors: Windows Defender doesn't turn on. I had another program though, so I didn't think this was a problem until something I read on the internet made me want to turn it on. I uninstalled the said program so it wouldn't conflict with Windows Defender, but it still refuses to turn on. So as of now I have neither. I also have about 16GB of space left (lots of movies). So what could the problem be? How can I fix this?
