Need to optimize your network? Look at adjusting LocalPriority, HostPriority, DNSPriority or NetBTPriority.  (Host/DNS resolution)

The tweak works by increasing the priority of four processes.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\ServiceProvider\
LocalPriority = 4 (DWORD, the default is 499, change to 4)
HostPriority = 5 (DWORD, the default is 500, change to 5)
DnsPriority = 6 (DWORD, the default is 2000, change to 6)
NetbtPriority = 7 (DWORD, the default is 2001, change to 7)

You can use this script at a command prompt (as Admin) or in PowerShell (as Admin)-

reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TcpIp\ServiceProvider /v “LocalPriority” /t REG_DWORD /D 4 /F

reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TcpIp\ServiceProvider /v “HostsPriority” /t REG_DWORD /D 5 /F

reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TcpIp\ServiceProvider /v “DnsPriority” /t REG_DWORD /D 6 /F

reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TcpIp\ServiceProvider /v “NetBtPriority” /t REG_DWORD /D 7 /F

taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
