From your description it sounds that only the downloads are slow. Is that from all sites are just from a specific site (could be their sever). Are other parts of the system also slow (opening explorer pages, opening pictures, problems with videos, etc.).

Well, Videos load slowly, sometimes pages take a while to load and like I had said before my downloads are at 24kbps.
As for me internet connection...it says 2WIRE300, Exllecent, Radio Type 802, its AT&T.

As for Local Area Connection Status
IPv4: INternet
IPv6: No network access
Media state: Enabled
Speed: 100.0Mbps

Bytes sent:821k Received 15,16,615,929.
Im going to to try the Clean boot for now and see what happens.
Also I thought this might help find my problem faster

Just tryed clean reboot.
While my computer was trying to shut down, it froze completely.
Another thing I might add is that task manager almost always stays at 20-29% Physical memory and CPU usage will randomly jump to 50%+ for like half a second.

EDIT:
i just read another thread that gave me an idea, it said slow internet can be casue by bad fliters.
I checked to see it and switched it with another one, my speed in downloads went up to 300kbps.
Here is another speed test

Now what I want to know is, is this an alright speed for my for the specs on my computer? or might there still be something wrong.
Sorry for so many posts.

Also try unchecking IPv6 in your connection properties

Your computers specs have nothing to do with how fast you download stuff. This problem has to do with your network or your ISP. I have had AT&T DSL before and I had a lot of trouble with it. I now have cable internet and couldn't be happier. Your download speeds in your speed test are pretty good and normal for AT&T DSL's 1.5mbps package. The physical memory and CPU spikes are normal. You could use less memory if you disable some of the start up programs and get rid of some of the bloat that HP puts on their computers, but that is a whole new thread.

It's funny how life can be. Friends in the neighborhood had cable and were very unhappy and now have ATT and are happy. Just the opposite to your experience.
