Network speed issue

I am running W10 and have direct lan connection to my router. On just one of my PCs a very odd thing has been happening recently.

If I use the "Network Speed Test " app it only records a download of about 3.5mbps although the up speed is 45mbps - however if I use the Ookla app the up and down speeds are each about 97mbps.

The "Network Speed Test" app seems however to work just fine on all other PCs - I have tried un-installing and reloading the app but it makes no difference and the down speed never gets above about 4mbps but the up speed is pretty fast - Not so long ago the down speed recorded OK -so is there any logical reason for the change in the speeds now being recorded on the one PC?
