    For some reason my usual servers which were only about 30ms(this is super rare for someone in my country) suddenly shot up to like 450ms and the only change I seem to have made was the change from XP to Win7.

    Have you checked your firewall settings, diagnosed your network connections, forwarded the proper ports on your router, checked that you're pinging everything properly, and confirmed that they are the same server?

    I disable aero and found performance in general increased. Could be your system is just being taxed in new ways.

    Have you made sure it's not trying to download updates? If you just upgraded there are probably a buttload.

    good point. Try installing a bandwidth monitoring program to rule this possibility out. I had a similar experience and after scratching my head for a while i realized I had a goat porn torrent running in the background.

    Or use the meter on ctrl+alt+delete, for networking.

    That's not /thread worthy. You didn't solve the problem or even diagnose it.
