Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

I've been having this issue for so long now! For some reason, my internet is blazing fast until I install Hamachi. Certain website downloads are affected but others aren't. for instance, downloading a zip file from "downloads.oneplus.com" WITHOUT Hamachi shows 3 minutes left. AFTER installing Hamachi, that same file now says 20 Minutes.... Same issue happens with Microsoft's download servers, when trying to download the Windows 10 iso, Hamachi just DESTROYS the download speed when my internet is more than capable of downloading large files quickly!

 

Even uninstalling Hamachi leaves the same affect, almost like there's something left in the system that causes this, registry data maybe? Any pointers?

Re: Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

So I'm not the only one! Yeah I tried EVERYTHING to get my speeds back, I finally got frustrated and reinstalled Windows on my PC, and found an alternative for Hamachi. I will never use Hamachi again because of this issue that was only fixed by a clean OS install. Not sure if I'm allowed to mention what I use now, so message me if you're curious Smiley Happy

Yeah it's a real bummer! I tried to talk to support and they just tried to convince me it wasn't Hamachi doing this -.- Alright I'll just say it here lol I switched to Radmin VPN after restoring my system, never had a problem after that! www.radmin-vpn.com

Re: Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

Yeah... Like you said. Did last night a clean install and use radmib VPN now.
Everything is just fine now!

Thank you bro, you helped me a lot.
A repair install didn't work for windows.

So you really need to install the hole thing from the beginning

Re: Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

omg
It's exactly the same problem as me
I've been struggling for months now and I'm sad that there's still no solution.
As you said, only OS reinstall is the solution Smiley Sad

Re: Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

Oh yeah it's a REAL BUMMER having to reinstall your entire OS over a single app, but it was the only thing that worked for me. I have no clue why Hamachi slows your speeds like it does, but it somehow needs a clean install of the OS to reverse? Bummer for sure.

Re: Slow downloads after installing Hamachi

Yeah Unfortunately, the only way to do this was to reinstall the OS. I'm very tired of this
I tried everything I know It all failed 
I'm tired of fighting this problem anymore.
The mega support team Say:We do not know how Hamachi works, so we cannot advise you, so could not help.
The only solution to this problem seems to be the Hamachi Support Team. It looks difficult too
I've been struggling with this for months. I have already written about this, but there is no answer

Then I saw your writing I feel as you say This problem won't be solved right away.
The RADMIN VPN you recommended works well without any problems Thanks for the recommendation
I feel like there's a registry involved... but I'm tired of trying it out Smiley Sad
What's the matter now? I'm not going to use it. Thank you for your reply and have a nice day
