Windows 7 slow Internet/Downolads

I've upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 in my Ideapad Y530, and now my download speeds are sub dialup.  I'm on a 100mb network.  My download speeds are around 60k.  Any help would be appreciated.

How are you connected to the Internet?

 

Cable?

ADSL?

Modem?

Ethernet?

Wireless?

Wireless connected to your neighbors router?

What does Speed Test show? (http://www.dslreports.com/stest)

I've figured this out. I'm such a dork.  I had two firewalls running.  One Windows, one Mcafee.  I turned off the Windows firewall and everything works great.  Thanks for the reply 6thSense.
