RantMicrosoft TCP/IP stack weirdness - anyone else having issues after the last update? Pin

I went to download something this morning and I was downloading at a paltry 6MB/s and change. (about 50MBits/s)

Normally it's closer to 25MB/s (200MBits/s)

I spent 20 minutes dealing with my ISP - between furbling through their automated system and troubleshooting with the rep (a very pleasant and competent woman. On an unrelated note I always feel good about getting Indians versus Americans on tech support. For some reason they tend to know what they're doing more of the time, in my experience and I'm used to their accents anyway so they aren't hard to understand over the phone. I think that puts me in the minority with respect to that opinion though)

Anyway, after going through the motions of restarting the modem, and checking my wireless LAN for any interlopers, I finally rebooted my machine. I figured I might as well. I kind of enjoy it, since it starts windows so fast.

All of the sudden my download speeds are back up to where they're supposed to be, but my upload speed is now averaging about 1.7MBits/s. Far worse than what it was before the reboot, and obviously not even close to reflective of my ISP's connection speeds with this package.

What the heck, Microsoft? Your "security" updates *always* elephanted. Just stop trying.
Real programmers use butterflies
