You really do not want to post email addresses in forums like these or elsewhere. There's a risk that they will be harvested by forum bots, (robots), so they can be spammed.
Your choice there.
First thing first, test your broadband connection with a speed test. Google will help you find one where you are, but you could try CNET's own test at CNET's Bandwidth Meter for starters.
If that is low, try again later when traffic may be better. If it is consistently low, then you may need to contact your ISP.
What type of downloads? If you mean P2P file sharing like uTorrent, Limewire, or any other torrents, you may need to read your ISP's Terms of Service as some ISPs now cap file sharing usage.
Bought a new computer. Having problems with extreamly slow downloading of files. I have broadband cable and used to download at about 275 kb per sec. now I get 50 to 60 kb a second. Is there a setting somewhere I can change? Its a dell running wind 7
and trend micro security. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
