Ok, an update. I went into msconfig and disabled expressvpn and also Mcafee web advisor which obviously didn't uninstall with the rest of the program. I'm now getting around 100 mb/sec download. So, it helped, but still not getting the speed i should. I now see there is an expressvpn notifier in startup, so i will disable that and reboot. if it makes a difference i will update.
