PC Network Bandwidth Throttled?

Hello. I am new to the community. My work PC seems to be limited to (on average) .1 - .3% of its 100Mbps LAN connection. This is whether I am attempting to access Internet resources or the LAN. I have verified all physical components to the network (quite literally from the back of my PC to the port on the switch - replacing patch cables, verifying the copper in the walls)
I checked speed and duplex settings on the switch and even went so far as to move to an entirely different Cisco switch.

My network card appears normal. I have updated drivers/ uninstalled and reinstalled the device. I feel pretty confident I've ruled the actual network hardware out of the equation.

Although I've been fighting with this for some time, I know this wasn't a gradual degradation. I went from using my full connection one week to being all but crippled the next.

I am running a Dell Vostro 200 with a (copied and pasted) Intel® 82562V-2 10/100 Network Connection and 1.60 GHz Intel Celeron Processor. I am running Windows XP Professional - Service Pack 2.

I have scanned with AVG, McAfee, and SuperAntiSpyware (and do so regularly). Nothing removed from these scans has resolved the speed issue. I feel it is time to consult the oracles!

I am attaching the three requested logs as well as a HijackThis! log. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
