Im sorry to be a nag but could you rephrase your question in regular font and make it into complete sentences with only 1 oe 2 smilies. That is probably the main reason no one has answered your question(im dizzy just looking at it).

not matter what spec laptop you have a desktop will usually out perform it, now faster your computer the faster it can process data i.e quicker web browsing, not once again please change your font as we are freaking out (and getting eye strain lol), you also mentioned you were using a laptop she isnt, because of heat issues and smaller lower power components laptops are generally slower than desktops (i know because im on one lol) so theres your first answer, second, i believe you mumbled kazaa & imesh, the usual p2p software, now if you have these running they will eat up your nandwidth and cause your net to seem a lot slower, they also give you an awful lot of spyware (especially kazaa!) , my opinion would be to stop the p2p software running, get adaware, then run it, then go to www.adslguide.org.uk and do the speed test, get your friend to do the same.

just a thought, but you mentioned you had two computers? Your probably behind a router, thus, you're sharing bandwidth, and your friend might not.

Yes, but that would only result in a slowdown if both computers were using the internet steady -- and at the same time.

I also think it could be your computer. Try using a friend's laptop or something.
