I was into this problem. My internet slowed down like a dial up connection. It was really suck. Then I got a really good tip from a forum site.

Just turn off these services, thru run>services.msc

Automatic Update > right click properties > and disabled
Background Intelligent Transfer service > same as above

Good Luck.
Thank you

Couldn't figure (since now) what was going wrong with my download speed in XP. I followed these two simple steps and it went from 300kb/sec to 1,5 mb/sec.
I'm really happy when I google a problem and find a answer that really works.
Thank You!!
