Default Problems with Tethering

Hi xda-community,

Tethering itself works, but my PC is running so slow, taskbar is unusable.
Can someone Help? Im Clueless.

System:
Windows 8.1 Update 1
Intel i5
Nvidia GeForce GT240
12GB Ram

Smartphone:
Nexus 4 (mako) unbranded.
BL unlocked, Rooted.
Rom: Cyanogenmod CM11 (Latest Nightlies, but Problem is also on M6)

That's strange. Why would your tethering affect PC performance? Is it only when tethering or is it whenever your device is connected?

Does it happen on other computers or is it just that one? ..
Do you have a question about the HD2 ? Ask it here for an instant response.

nexus⁴: Carbon 4.4 with moob kernel.

Probably like many and me, you too could make activated Windows 8.1 through a TAP Driver activator. I don't why the very same thing occur to me, with multiple 8.1 PCs and tethering phone combos. Everything that works fine in Windows 7 and 8 messes in 8.1. As you said I too face extremely irresponsive Taskbar particularly the Wi-Fi Network selecting sidebar that doent even popup when USB Tether is done. A sec I disconnect everything happens one by one immediately. I can't even diagnosis the IP of connection due to this lag despite its extreme slow..

I activated Windows 8.1 with a valid licence.
PC is only slow when tethering is ENABLED, not if i just
connect phone to computer.

I managed to get it working that way:
Pull out Lan-cable, but keep activated the Lan
Network adapter. Activate Tethering.
It just works fluid, dont know why.

Yes PC's Network and sharing center goes wild only with tethering and not with normal MTP or PTP connections. Plus I tried to Pull out Lan-cable and yet keep activated the Lan Network adapter. Nothing happen new, same lag occur. If possible, I'll post a video to denote what happens in my PC soon..
