    why so slow?


    i have a brand new computer with windows 10 installed and it took over 12 hours to download a 100MB file, plus it cannot stream. Its like I'm on a dial up connection, except at adsl2 prices. Its incredibly frustrating and clearly the reason why apple always comes out on top. Can anyone help me out on how to get my computer to run like a normal computer?

    Hi. A complete system specification would be handy. Please see this guide. It could be a number of factors and until we get your info we can't really help you in any meaningful way.

    I would point out that 4gb of memory is rather low in this day and age.
