Windows 7: Download speed settings?

Download speed settings?

I download large files from time to time and notice that my download speeds are in excess of 350Mbs or rather 100% DL bandwidth is being allocated, which in turn drag resources from internet explorer when trying to view other pages or downloading other files simulaneously, also I have noticed that sometimes the downloads are cut off before finishing as if my bandwidth just drops out or corrupted as a result of the download speed. I have noticed when using DL managers not native to windows that the same thing would occur until I lowered the max dl speed. i do not want to use a third party dl manager.

I use win 7 default download manager and can set the default diectory but am not able to find where to set the download speed. I want to set it to at least 50% so I have other resources available.

I am familiar with editing the registry and have searched for entries pertaining to download attributes but cant find what I am looking for.

I have searched on the interent with no luck.

I have searched win 7 options with no luck...

Can anyone help?

I do not want to use a third party DL manager as some files I download cannot be done with use of third party DL mangers.

That is why I need to configure win 7 default dL manager...

I'm not aware of a Win 7 download manager, downloading is a function of your browser. Which browser are you using? There may be browser settings you can alter.

There are no throttling options. Majority of people want faster downloads not slower.
