[SOLVED] Slow Internet speed while connected through Ethernet

For some odd reason when I'm run the speed test, I am getting lower speeds than what I should be getting. I have a 100Mb speed plan and I normally get a 90-125Mb average. But now I'm only seeing 40-50Mb speed.

I updated windows, network adapter drivers, and still, I cannot get more than 40-50Mb.

I know its not the modem or the router, cause I tested on my other pc it's giving me the correct speed. I even change the ethernet cable. This computer is the only one that is giving me slow speeds. I also turned off (energy-efficient Ethernet, Power saving mode) and still the same result.

is the network adapter failing? Motherboard issue? Windows issue?

Realtek PCIe 2.5GbE Family Controller with driver version: 10.35.510.2019
Windows 10 Pro 1903

Yep, it was the Game first application that was throttling my speed. I completely forgot that I installed that app. Thanks!
