Running latest version of AM Premium. Windows 7, IE-10 & FF, i7

Why the drastic difference in upload speed when AM is enabled? :(

Your real world upload speed is unaffected.

only the test is impacted for you.

I was noticing the difference in upload speed running Webroot SecureAnywhere while AM was enabled.
I also tried AM running NIS-2014 (shown in first post) with AM enabled.
When AM is shut off upload speed is in the 30's.
Also tested with Verizon Speed Test and results similar.

What about when you disable all other 3rd party security apps?

All Security Uninstalled (Webroot / NIS 2014), Win Def off, All 3 party cookies in IE-10 off, All other software (except Adobe Flash, need it for speed test) off:

I must say I too get these differences too, when I check my speed.

With Ad-Muncher / with windows essential security: Up: 52 Mbps - Down: 14 Mbps
Without Ad-Muncher / with WES: Up: 56 Mbps - Down: 68 Mbps
Without Ad-Muncher / without WES: 54 Mbps - Down: 60 Mbps
With Ad-Muncher / without WES: 47 Mbps - Down: 15 Mbps

I have no other software installed that in could interfere with network or system. Like to keep it clean! And no program is hogging network bandwidth during tests.

Using latest Chrome stable build (Version 32.0.1700.102 m), and Windows 7 x64 ultimate.

I asked my brother too, and he got similar differences.

is there a way to test for real, to see if it's just regarding these online tests?

the real test is using your browser and the internet.

For whatever it's worth....I also have Verizon FiOS and see no difference in upload speed with AdMuncher on or off. Here's a speed test with AdMuncher filtering enabled:

Plan is 75/35. I could post test result with filtering off but they're identical.

Windows 7 (x64) SP1; Microsoft Security Essentials; IE10 and/or Firefox26; SUPERAntiSpyware
