I just re-installed Windows XP home, and I put in all the new patches; SP2, and the like. Before I installed Norton AV, and Zone Alarm, I noticed that my test scores from Broadbandreports.com were hovering around the 5300kpbs-7000kbps.. I have a 7meg download cable modem hook up. So, now that I am up and running to how I should be, I check my test scores are now back down to what I was getting BEFORE I reinstalled windows of around 2500-2600kbps, tested on different servers, different times of the day. What is making it so slow? What program did I install is making my connection so slow?!? I tried disabling NAV, and ZoneAlarm independently, and then together, but I'm still getting the slow speeds. Could it be some other program running somewhere that I dont know of (Or one I think is 'harmless?')

I have a XP 1600+ AMD,
512 PC3200 RAM
400FSB
Windows XP home SP2

Don't forget to factor in the 'contention'. Any chance that you have a near neighbour hogging any bandwidth. Happened to me.
