Slow Downloads and updates

  Garden nome 10:38 30 Mar 2011

Hi Guys,
Recently I have been having problems with my downloads and updates. e.g. it took approximately 35 minutes to download Google Chrome. Also, when updates are available for my Antivirus, Registry Mechanic etc. it takes ages to download them.
Can anyone offer advice to resolve the problem??
Many thanks,
Garden nome

Maybe try this speed test to make sure you are getting the proper download and update speed.

When downloading anything go into Task Manager and see what is using most of the CPU under processes.

Did you ever renew the Cmos battery or are you still loosing time.

Thanks for that Buteman.
+I haven't tried that yet but I will.
I didn't change the battery but the clock and time are now showing correct.
Thanks again.
