Why is it, when my computer runs, that other computers on our network slow down?

My computer is slightly slower than the fastest computer on the router, but the other computers slow down. I have no clue as to why. We have a fast router, so it is not the problem. Could someone help?

    Your “slow” computer could be infected with some malware or virus, causing use of the internet connection, and slowing down everyone else’s access speed….

    if you have utorrent or anything similar you might be uploading and, hence slowing everyone down. if so, just stop the uploads

    When you say slow down do you mean that the computers themselves are running slower or that your internet connection is slow. If its the internet slowing down, imagine that your internet connection is just like the pluming in your house. If you turn on one faucet the flow is fast, but if you turn on two neither one will run as fast as they would by them selves. Your internet connection works the same way.
    Or that your slow computer my have some program or virus, spyware, that uses the internet constant and excessively.

    Now if your computers them selves are running slower then something is out of date, infected, or just messed up. Good luck

    1.From IE, click Tools, Internet Options
    delete cookies
    delete files (offline files)
    clear history (set days to save to 0 if you want)
    click o.k., and Restart Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools – run Disk Cleanup
    3.Temporarily close Quick Launch:
    Right-click on the Taskbar, click Toolbars, deselect Quick Launch
    4.Open My Computer
    right-click on C:
    click Properties
    click Tools, select Error Check (check all and fix), when finished click defrag & run. Start, Run ipconfig renew (type ipconfig space renew)
    6.Restart. Right-click on Taskbar, click Toolbars, select Quick Launch to restore

    All these things should be done regularly. The more frequently they are run, the less time they take.
    -Note: Games and videos are mostly graphics. Graphics create large files. If these suggestions don’t help, you might need more memory.

    Last, if you haven’t cleaned your registry in a while. This is necessary. Your registry holds all the information regarding updates, installs, un-installs etc. Each one of those events produces a key. That key needs your PC’s resources and free space. So, if you clean your registry, you make more resources available for speed. Do a registry scan if you got more than 20 errors you should clean it.
