We recently switched internet providers from ATT DSL to qwirelessbb who is a wireless fixed point ISP. Anyways, the speed is superfast. I can usually hit 2.0MB/sec on torrents. Now here is the stupid question. For the life of me I cannot figure out WHY firefox any any browser really does good to hit 100KB/sec for any file. If I use something like DownThemAll for firefox, I can hit 300-350 on the same file easily. I have called the ISP, and they said they have no clue why thats happening, and said that they dont filter anything. Anyone have any idea's on what I should check? Thigs like windows update or anything that goes over httpd seems to be limited to around 1.5MB/sec speeds. I have swapped routers twice. Any clue?

With Windows as long as you do your updates, don't install java, and keep 3rd party applications up to date you are probably ok. I would / and do sandbox my web browsing just to be safe. Then again I do also use Avast and malwarebytes.
