Hi lebanner08,

By "re downloaded" I hope you don't mean you're running an illegal copy of Windows 7, in which case we won't be able to help you... do you mean reinstalled?

How are the other aspects of your internet connection performing, such as browsing the internet, playing online games, or uploading photos or video?

windows 7

yes i mean re installed sorry i worded that wrong. the rest of my computer is working faster then it was before i re installed windows 7, in other words its working fine. since i re installed windows 7 i thought everything would be working faster since it would almost be like a new computer but this is not the case. at least for the downloading its not.
