Internet slowed down by desktop

I am running Windows 7 on my desktop. Anytime it is turned on, the internet for the entire house slows to a crawl.
Speedtest shows the download speed at 4.41 - 5 Mbps when the desktop is off and it slows down to .06 when the desktop is turned on.
AVG scan shows nothing.

It could mean that something in that computer is draining a lot of bandwidth. What's the typical work load of that computer? What programs are running and whose are using internet for something?
Other than that, a possible hardware failure (malfunctioning network card) could also affect performance for the entire network.

Win 7 Slowed WAY down
Guys, I am having a problem with my PC that maybe you can help me with. Yesterday all of a sudden everything slowed WAY down. It would take 2-3 minutes for the system to respond to anything. Resources were at 75-100%. A problem like this is hard to work on when it takes so long for anything...

Win 7 slowed to a crawl
My system has slowed to a crawl (and rebooting makes no difference). Every mouse click takes anything between 10 and 60 seconds to get a response and most programmes state 'not responding'. When I boot into Safe Mode it's fine, so I'm guessing it's not a hardware problem. I tried rolling...
