new computer problems

Recently brought a new computer and have noticed that when i download things the speed is slower than my old computer. I am using Aol 2mb service and before it was really quick to download files but now on my new computer it takes me absoloutely ages. I have already done the adsl speed test and they come up fine so im really baffled to what the problem is. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Can you connect up your old PC and run a side-by-side comparison?

The different PC should make absolutely chuff-all difference to your d/l speeds,I have a selection of PC's ranging from an ancient lappy with 233Mhz CPU to a desktop with a 2.25Ghz CPU and they all d/l at comparable speeds.

Do you have adaware or anything installed to check if you have any software grabbing the bandwidth? My speed went down to less than half the other day, I did a clean up and got the speed back. Adaware personal is free and very good with frequent updates.
