Internet not working and Win7 stuttering(solved-ish)

KhavallKhavall British ColumbiaRegistered User regular
So I upgraded to Win7 like everyone else on the planet, and yesterday everything was working fine.

I wake up today, turn on the computer, and pretty much can't use the computer.

The internet gives me maybe a second of working if I reset the connection, and other computers(for instance, my Eee which I'm using to post this) can connect and use the internet just fine. It worked for the first 20 minutes of the day too, just slightly slow.

Also, the mouse stutters every few seconds, as does Media player, even when running nothing else. Hell, the mouse stutters when running absolutely nothing.

There is no unknown program running, Avast hasn't detected any problems, the CPU is hovering at about 5% use and RAM at about 40%.

How do I make this computer, like... do things?

    I had this exact problem when I first got Vista. In my case it was an incompatible driver. On my wireless adapter, if I remember right. I'd double-check to make sure everything is updated right.

    Allright, yeah, I uninstalled the driver and let the generic one take over, so I'll try updating it now to see if it still works.

    Edit: Nope. Ok, well, it's working now, I just have to not update the drivers. Awesome

    And it was all "WE'LL DOWNLOAD THIS FOR WHEN YOU RESTART!" with the drivers that don't work. no! Bad Windows!
