hi there, is ther a prog which allows me to see where my 120kbps (my rough total download bandwidth) is goin, because sometimes my web pages go really slow as if ive got a very quick download runnig, even if my downloads are running at very slow speeds also, this also happens when im not downloading, so ide like a prog that show me all things that are using any of my available bandwith, any suggestions? many thanks

120Kbps connection speed isn't all that fast, its only just over twice the speed of a dial-up connection. Therefore average download speeds would be about 10-15k a second.

120k/s download speed on a 1Mb connection is about right. Anything from 110k/s to 125k/s is considered normal download speeds on a 1Meg connection assuming the servers you download from are running at full capacity.
