Internet problem - Slow Speeds

I just had a problem with the internet speed to my main computer with both wired LAN and Wi-Fi, getting download speeds of less than 1Mb. Although all my other devices connecting, whether wired directly to the router or with Wi-Fi were fine. I found out that the problem was a program that I had accidentally downloaded called SmartByte which detects and prioritizes your critical video and communication traffic. Not knowing I had downloaded this I thought that I had a problem with my LAN card, after uninstalling the program my speeds were back up  to their normal 108Mb.
