hmm... that is odd.. as you sure that the page isnt being cached in IE? Or even if it ever existed... The database isnt find anything like that right now.. I dont think that firefox would be that slower..

it cant be in the cache, because i used zonealarm to clear all my ie cookies and stuff after the first dl test, and then it went higher.

Ya download a big file and lets see your finished averaged DL!

If you download at like 3mb/sec i'll believe you.

i hope its just a cache problem, but ive deleting it all like crazy. i checked for spyware and viruses, so now i just need to wait to go home and check ie again.

lol, if i got 3mb/sec, dont u think id be bragging and rubbing it in ur faces? :wink: highest ive ever dled anything at was 1mb/sec and that was only for a second then it fell rapidly...

no i keep all my firewalls off when testing. i actually never run zone alarm while using the internet because im always on forums and it logs me out for some reason. the only time i ever use zone alarm is for clearing my cache and history and stuff and when im doing something like defragmenting where im not using the computer.

My speed with Firefox atm: 0 bits per second. Firefox freezes the second I start it up. Re-installing did nothing. I'm stuck with IE :shock:
