I did RWIN tweak , run ccleaner and uninstalled Zone Alarm and voila! speed was back to 3.6mbps. I installed Zone Alarm back and speed went down to 1.8mbps. Now I know who the culprit is. My question is do I have to live with this compromise or are they any other FREE firewall that I can use that won't have the same effect on speed?? If there are no free firewall then which one should I buy? I am connected thorough Linksys router (BTW,doesn't linksys routers have built-in firewall?).

I also have Comcast and noticed that some of the Mirrors closer to where I live seem to be consistently faster.  You might want to try one of testmy.net's mirror servers and test your connection there.  The one I tested was  http://www.testmy.net/o-mirrorBAF .  My results are below:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 4121 Kbps about 4.1 Mbps (tested with 3151 kB)

Download Speed is:: 503 kB/s

Tested From:: http://www.bafserv.com

Test Time:: 

Bottom Line:: 74X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.04 sec

Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 20.04 % faster than the average for host (comcast.net)
