Can you get a Process Monitor capture of a really slow speed test?

What do you mean "speed test"? What activity?

The USB speed test we were doing before you went on your trip.  Remember you said the first one was fairly quick but subsequent ones dropped in speed to below 1 M

Try uninstalling Bonjour.  This is some Apple software that checks for Apple Hardware on the network.  (I think it gets installed when you add or update itunes).  It's getting in the middle of the test.  MBAM is also in the way as is ipoint but Bonjour seems to be the worst.  Try a new run of speed tests after uninstalling and see if it helps.

Can't find an installation of Bonjour anywhere on pc.

MBAM is the reason I upgraded to Windows 7 from a stable Vista.

Ipoint is the only way my mouse side button works.

Search for

 

services.msc

 

hit Enter

 

Find Bonjour Service

 

Right click and Properties.  Change Startup Type: to Disabled APPLY.  Stop the service.

Okay, I'll backup my pc then uninstall MBAM & ipoint to see if it solves it, but I still can't find Bonjour, will wait until I can uninstall Bonjour to uninstall the others.

Process Monitor says your mDNSResponder.exe belongs to Research In Motion and not bonjour:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Tunnel Manager\mDNSResponder.exe

 

You might be able to use Process Explorer to right click on mDNSResponder.exe and Pause.

I tried suspending but MBAM wouldn't suspend.

I tried suspending all labelled processes related to blackberry, MBAM, Epson, Java & TableMike, but no improvement to speedtest or safely remove notification.

I terminated ipoint, MBAM and MdnsResponder (and StreamWhatYouHear as it congested the PML).

And then I performed another USBDeview speedtest.

ProcessExplorer here (Note: showed OfficeClickToRun & Nvidia Telemetry, both of which couldn't be terminated)

If you set a filter to only include process name usbdeview.exe it's easy to see how the program works.  You can see it writing to the USB in large chunks then it reads them back.  At the end it checks on CPU time and oddly enough yours uses less CPU time so we are probably looking at something like a bad driver causing page faults or a memory leak. 

 

In case we haven't used it before here are the instructions:

 

Let's try Latency Monitor:

Go to

http://www.resplendence.com/downloads

Scroll down to

System Monitoring Tools

and then find

LatencyMon 6.70 (or it may be a higher number if they update)

Click on Download free home edition

Save it then right click and Run As Admin.  It will install and then start the program.  
It will tell you to click on the Start button but there isn't one.  
Instead click on the green arrowhead (looks like a Play button).   Let it run for at least 20 seconds.  Run the USB speed test.  When it finishes: Then hit the red box to stop Latency Monitor.

Edit, Copy Report text to Clipboard then move to a REPLY and Ctrl + v to paste the text into a reply.

I ran it but after 10minutes I clicked stop. Results posted below, would you like me to run longer than 10minutes? _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
CONCLUSION
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Your system appears to be having trouble handling real-time audio and other tasks. You are likely to experience buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops. One or more DPC routines that belong to a driver running in your system appear to be executing for too long. At least one detected problem appears to be network related. In case you are using a WLAN adapter, try disabling it to get better results. One problem may be related to power management, disable CPU throttling settings in Control Panel and BIOS setup. Check for BIOS updates.
LatencyMon has been analyzing your system for  0:10:00  (h:mm:ss) on all processors.

MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.

Average measured interrupt to process latency (µs):   2.787082

 REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.

NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.

Process with highest pagefault count:                 iexplore.exe

Total number of hard pagefaults                       4666

Try it again with Internet Explorer closed and the Network Adapter turned off.  Mine finished the test in 26 seconds and without any pagefaults
