    What? I don't know what you are asking for... Is your PC free of spyware or other malware? What program(s) are you running for protection?

    So your friend's PC doesn't slow down when he is installing another program. What type of Internet provider are you using? Are you using a router with your modem? If so, your router could be slowing things down
