Why'd my internet speed only slow down on one computer?

Recently I found my internet to be very slow, so I check and it was much lower then usual. Usually I have 11mbps download, but now I only had 4. This seems like an okay speed, but my downloads went from 1mb/s to 50kb/s which really slows them down.

The weird thing is the speed on my other computer remains at a steady 11mbps and downloads are the same speed. The only change was on my computer.

I tried:
Cleaning my registry - Didn't help
Checking for viruses - I was clean
Directly connecting my computer to the UVerse box
And other minor things

but none of it helped, speeds are still low. I think the only problem could be something with my computer, as the other computer still has good speeds.
Any solutions?

try booting with a linux live cd (like mint) then run the speedtest from firefox in linux this will rule out any software issues

Is the computer Running slow while surfing the internet, or when running programs?
