    Last night we bought a brand new HP Pavillion a6838f with vista and began downloading different programs. Well we began to notice that although the internet works at a perfectly fine speed downloads go excessivly slow. I have read that Nortan antivirus is a potential cause but I was just wondering if there are any other possibilities that could be causing the problem. We recieve internet via cable. Also, plugging our previous computer in right next to us and trying to download the same program, the speed is considerably faster, noting that the second computer is using windows XP.

    What speeds are you getting with it? Visit http://www.speakeasy.net and run their speed test. What should you be getting?

    Are you using a router? Try it with the router and with your computer connected directly to your modem.

    Could be the related drivers for your system. Visit the HP site and install all driver updates related to your specific model.
