Ok here's the deal. My computer came with an ethernet card on the motherboard. I've been using that for the time i've had computer. Few weeks ago it broke, so I had to install new one. New one works fine. HOWEVER. I can't get rid of the original in my computer since its on motherboard. I disabled it in Hardware, but still I get lag cause there are 5 differen't svchosts in my task manager running. 2 networks, 2 services and 1 says local. This is causing me lag. I'm a gamer and we know lag down to the 10th decimal place. IF i shutdown the Local svchost, it helps. However there is still those other 2 that shouldn't be there. And if i shut them down i get a big system error shutting down message. I'd like to somehow get rid of them and have the computer want nothing to do with the original network card altogether. I thought since I disabled it in hardware it would stop altogther, but i guess the computer still wants it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Turn the device off in the BIOS, not the Device Manager.
