    My brand new hp pavillion dv41281us laptop was just set up and when browsing, the internet speeds are great. However when downloading trend micro internet security right now, im only getting 34 kbps. I am wired in to the intenet, so its not a wireless issue. Please help!

    Could be out of your control--problem with your ISP (if they are like mine see if it's better after the weekend), internet congestion or overloaded server.

    "the internet speeds are great" is a good indication that your ISP is OK. Also try something like Speedtest.net. How does it compare to what you are supposed to be getting?
