    I just installed Emule. Something like Edonkey2000. Now my connection is sluggish as shit and I cant even play counterstrike anymore (the choke is through the freakin roof). What the hell happened? I have a cable connection that was way fast before I installed this crap.

    don't install p2p programs and that won't happen. Basically people are downloading from you, taking up bandwidth. :uh:

    or
    is your connection horrible even when you're not using the program? Often times, when the program is running, it will cause the computer to lag badly, but when the program is not running, it's fine. This was the case in my problem at least. And if you use P2P programs, I'd recommend Ad-aware or some spy ware program...those are helpful

    I figured it out... it was only counterstrike... for some reason it set my settings in CS to 28.8kbps and thats why it was choking like crazy. Everything works great now even when Im uploading to people.
