    Downloading Speed.

    Hi Loungers,
    My desktop & laptop pc's were clean installed using Windows7 32bit Home Premium upgrade discs, and both are set the same with nearly all programs on both.

    I am not getting a good download speed on my wired desktop pc. I have flushed the DNS Cache & Firefox Cache & rebooted my Netgear DGN2000 router. CCleaner has also been used.

    If I use Utorrent on my desktop, the d/l speed is ok. If downloading from a web page, it is helluva slow. My laptop is not slow & does not have Utorrent installed.

    Have you run sfc /scannow?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Yes, I also used the trouble shooter, it found trouble with DNS so I added OpenDNS servers to IPv4 properties which cleared it.
