    Hello, whilst updating a trojan software program, I noticed the transfer rate was 53 k/per sec. I have DSL and my normal transfer rate (on the same program update) has been in the 130-145 k/ per sec.

    I contacted my ISP and was told there is nothing wrong at their end. Is there anything else I can check on the comp?

    Thanks for the help

    What is your DSL provider?

    What is the normal speed of the DSL? Mine is 3 Mb.

    WHat where you using to download the Trojan? Why were you downloading a Trojan?

    Download speeds vary at time because of the amount of people using the DSL or web, A lot of times it is where you are downloading the file from were you using something like Limewire? Those networks wet the bed they are full of nasties.

    If you can download from other sites at the normal DSL rate, the problem is the software programs servers. They may have some down for service/maint. Or a couple zillion people are diong the same as you, at the same time.

    Hey thanks for the input

    The download was an update for a anti-trojan software program.

    The only prob with this being a slow server or because I was one of a zillion people using it, is that other downloads have beeen slow also.

    DSL provider is toast.net

    As far as the "normal speed" - I'm not sure - the icon on the taskbar says 10mbps
