Hello,

The download speed not only depends on you, it maybe the server you are downloading from capping their bandwidth to each user.

Does this happen to every site you download from?

If you suspect it's a virus, then post a HijackThis log in the malware removal forum. It could also be caused by your ISP assigning you low bandwidth.

1. what internet browser do you use?
2. there is a possibility that somebody is downloading a large file that takes up a lot of the speed...
