I was into this problem. My internet slowed down like a dial up connection. It was really suck. Then I got a really good tip from a forum site.

Just turn off these services, thru run>services.msc

Automatic Update > right click properties > and disabled
Background Intelligent Transfer service > same as above

Good Luck.

I'm really happy when I google a problem and find a answer that really works.
Thank You!!
