Here I am going to explain a killer trick to boost your internet speed up to 50%. If your internet speed is 50KBps (in case of local dial up), then you get only 20 to 40 KBps, because many background process like updating windows components are eating up your internet bandwidth. Actually we are not going go boost the limit of your bandwidth, but disabling such updating processes boost your internet speed up to 50%.
Even though if you disable automatic updating of Windows on their settings, Windows still uses internet for many uses.
Here I am going to reveal two methods to stop such updating up to 90%.
Method 1: Stopping the working of Background Intelligent Transfer Service
Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) is a Windows service which transfers files in the background using network bandwidth. If we disable this service, then any applications such as Windows Update or MSN Explorer, will be unable to automatically download programs and other information.
To disable this service:
- Open Run prompt (Window Key + ‘R’)
- Type services.msc and hit Enter key.
- Now a window of list of all Windows services will open.
- Locate to Background Intelligent Transfer Service and double click on it.
- Now its Properties window will open.
- Select Startup type as ‘Disabled’ and OK.
If the svchost.exe still eating up your bandwidth, then this method will work well. There is a dll file named qmgr.dll which support the eating up of internet using svchost.exe. Deletion of qmgr.dll will stop this type of bandwidth stealing.
The location of qmgr.dll is: C:\Windows\System32\qmgr.dll
Unfortunately Windows does not allow you to delete this file due to their Permission problem or due to file is open in another program message.
There are two way to delete this file:
A. Using another OS like Linux
If your computer has any other OS like Linux version (eg: Ubuntu) then boot and locate to C:\Windows\System32 folder and delete the file qmgr.dll
B. Using Bootable Windows Installation Setup
If you boot Windows installation setup from a Disc or bootable pen drive, then you can follow these steps to delete the qmgr.dll file.
(These steps are under basis of Windows 8 OS setup. Setups of Windows 7 or Windows vista also enough to perform these steps, but you may have some changes in steps)
- Boot the Disc (or pen drive)
- Firstly you will get a window of setting Language, Time format etc, Go Next
- Now you can see an option to Install Windows and Repair. Choose Repair your computer. Do not proceed to Install Now
- Select Troubleshoot (Special step for Windows 8)
- Advanced Options (Special step for Windows 8)
- System image recovery. You will get a message like this: Windows cannot find a system image on this computer.
- Now press Cancel button and select a system image option
- Choose Install a driver
- Add driver. You will get a message: Insert the installation media for the device and click OK to select the driver.
- Now a window will open to select driver. This is your time.
- Now locate to C:\Windows\System32\qmgr.dll and right click on qmgr.dll, from given context menu, choose delete. Now you can delete without any error.
- If you refresh the window, you can see the qmgr.dll file was deleted successfully.
