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.

It's true I had this problem and I just realised AMD Quick Stream was the cause. My internet bandwidth was limited from 200Mbps to only 6Mbps on both Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

It ddn't even give me an option to not install it when I updated my drivers, it forced it on me, and I forgot it was there.

 

It took me forever to find out why my internet was slow, after embarrassing myself, getting in direct contact with my ISP CEO President, accidently (don't ask) which got people from 5 states to call me, then they sent a poor guy out here in the dead of night, pitch black to climb the poles, all of which happened within 2 hours. Then on a whim I uninstalled AMD quick stream, and my internet went back to being perfect.

AMD shouldn't even have it.
