Since the creation of the Internet, users have been searching for ways to maximise the speeds of their connections. Online gaming has made this an even more prevalent issue as it has become a major use for the Internet. Almost every game released has some sort of online feature. Unfortunately, a slower connection speed can render playing online almost impossible. However there are remedies to a slow connection speed.

    Select "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next." Write a description of the restore point, then click "Create." If anything goes wrong with the configurations you make, you can simply go back to the "System Restore" application and return the computer to this restore point.
