I've noticed of late that it seems to take a lot longer for me to download and I don't mean just programs etc , I'm also talking about typing in the name of a site and getting the home page to open.
I tested my speed on the McAfee speedometer here click here and although my broadband is 256kbps it showed after about 10 attempts that my speed was at highest 140 kbps but on average 120 kbps.I also tried Dan Elwells broadband speed test here click here and it found that it was only my download speeds that were the problem and in fact stated that in regards to my download speeds "Serious problems and should be investigated"
So how do I better my download speeds , can anyone suggest what is wrong here ?
ps - I would assume that you have tried all the usual - running spyware/anti-virus etc, clearing out all the accumulated rubbish etc. Along with disk-cleanup and defrag. Though I am probably just telling you to 'suck eggs' as the saying goes.
