Not my normal line of work but vastly improved a client’s network connection speed today. Did all the usual checks to see what was slowing things down, Powerline networking was the prime culprit but it was fine.
The PC was generally a little sluggish so I looking at the Task Manager showed up a couple of Rapport processes taking up some (but not a lot) of CPU time… Killed them off and removed the program completely and the speed (check with www.speedtest.net) went from 2 or 3 mbps all the way up to proper BT infinity speeds of 35+ mbps. Result!
Rapport is supposed to be protecting your online banking experience – protecting it by making it soooo slooooooooow that you can’t do anything on it!
