I run WIndows XP and had broadband. Recently, I have noticed that if I download several pictures, one-after-the other, the process is a lot slower than it was before. I've run anti-virus scans and spyware scans, and have a firewall. However, videos, music, dvd and zip-files are unaffected.
I solved this, ater taking the methods reommended by cannard (delete background progams on Windows XP in my case).
Then I simply dowloaded my picks to Documents instead of "My Pictures". Okay, I can't do much wirtht hem at the moment, but at least they now downlaod without me havingto go andmake a cup of coffee in the meanhwile.
