    You might want to try lowering the limit for switching to passive mode in the IMON setup.

    lowering of internet speed is subjective - you should not notice a slow-down unless you're downloading lots of large files that need to be scanned by IMON - larger files take a lot longer to scan than smaller ones obviously.

    When you say that you're noticing a decrease in speed, have you tried to quantify that?

    If you have, there are two types of internet speed tests, one kind uses download of a number of large files - the tests normally report back to the server when completed and this can be delayed by IMON - and of course, that will add a slow-down.

    The other kind of test, namely the java applet type always seem to be more accurate in my experience.

    I'd recommend using a couple of different tests from different providers, and then trying the same tests with IMON turned off. Then turn back on IMON and tweak your settings as Marcos described.

    Another thing to consider are remnants from a previous solution - run a registry cleaner, then fix your network settings using the in-built fix, and winsock repair. Reboot and run your tests again.

    You might also follow some of the great advise that can be found on speedguide.com - you can MASSIVELY increase your computer's responsiveness in a few quick tips you'll find there.

    Mine is set to 100kb and the other one is just disabled.
    You might wanna experiment on what works best for you.
