So.. when i attempt to download somthing, it starts at maybe.. 30 KB/s, then steadily drops, until it hits zero.. Then the download fails...

Is there a way to keep stable download speed?

Hello Hinata-chan

What are you downloading with? Internet Explorer? FireFox? Limewire?

I've tried it with Firefox, IE, and a program called "Free Download Manager"... It usually occurs with all three.

Try this. You may need to download the program from a different computer.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp DiskCleaner. Delete all junk files. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp RegistryCleaner. Fix all errors. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Optimize & Improve. Run TuneUp RegistryDefrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot.

After the reboot, start Tune Up again. Click on Optimize & Improve then click on TuneUp System Optimizer. Now click on Accelerate downloads and Internet surfing to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, start Tune Up again. Click on Optimize & Improve then click on TuneUp System Optimizer. In the menu to the left called "Wizards", choose System Advisor. Note some of the advice it tells you.

Try: DSL, cable modem or satellite (2 Mbit or higher)

Restart the computer afterwords and see how the downloading goes.
