I have an emachine T5048 3.07 Ghz system with 896 MB memory. When I download software it takes a long time. It is like my download speed is set tooooo slow. How do I adjust it?

I read that if you look at your performance chart there is a "throttle bar" that can be adjusted to increase the download speed. We got into administrative tools/performance and saw the graphs but we saw No throttle bar. Looked on Microsoft help..no throttle bar...etc etc...

Thanks in advance for any help that you offer.

First question, dial-up, DSL, or cable connection? You can go here to find out you upload and download speed and compare it to others:

You could try various download managers, but there not all that great. Torrent sites offer some improvement, but you run the risk of corrupted, incomplete or damaged files and the risk of getting a virus is rather high
