Here's a tool I've found effective in helping my Internet Connection (while running AirVPN). The tool receives a lot of positive feedback from users. For most of you Windows users it's probably 2nd nature to optimize the settings this tool 'tweaks' -but for the novice to enthusiast, maybe you'll find it helpful. Worked like a charm for me. If inclined to go for it, create a new folder for the .exe/tool, then any back-up data is automatically housed in newly created folder after running.
I sanboxed it first, ran it though virustotal.com (no negative comments or flags -but please download and execute w/ caution as YMMV). AirVPN Tech Support didn't say it was unsafe to use, but they didn't say it was "safe" either -as it's closed, ofc.
The website is pretty neat as well... lots of interesting reads (at least for me). Hope this program helps a fellow noob... and if anyone recommends against using it, Id welcome the feedback as Id rather be safe than sorry. Thank you!
