If not the AV try a clean boot as suggested

Then I expect that Group Policy setting is not the default since I've been downloading many podcasts (mp3 files) using IE for years and did not notice any additional delay after installing MSE.

No, it is not the default but for some it makes no difference. It is more noticeable if the policy is applied, hence the word especially. For those who it makes no difference, they get the lag and it is MSE, specifically MsMpEng.exe. Just as you have had great success with it in your downloading, I personally have the lag at 99 percent.

Hey, I'm not knocking it. After many, many attempts to use it only having to uninstall, I now finally have it working fairly well. Lol, probably the last five times I tried to run it, I said I would never attmept to install it again but I refused to give up.

A lot of good stuff has been contributed, thanks for all suggestions. I've given up on one particular file though. I've tried many combinations of browsers, download managers, disabling antivirus but I never get beyond 77% with it. I reckon it's just because the file comes from a very slow hoster (depositfiles) and is quite big. Never mind, I can live without it.

As for upload/download speeds, I usually see myself uploading at 40-45 whereas the fastest I ever see a download is 520.

If jdownloader is particularly good with depositfiles as SledgeDG suggests, I may give it one last go.

Thanks again
