AMD Quick Stream causes some very bad network problems on all of my HP laptops. It would even when not running throttle my network connection(s) via Ethernet and Wifi. The software was not an open process and yet after removing completely via control panel add/remove programs my connection has stopped its throttle loop and returned to a constant 45.0 mbps down. This took place specifically on the HP Envy dv6 series notebooks and is something that should be investigated. Thank you for your time.
