    You may have more processes and applications loaded on your acct since its an admin acct. You may want to go to start -> run and type in msconfig and then go to the start up tab and see if you have unnecessary items loading up. That could possibly help.

    It is just plain logic, but how could that be? I mean, your sister's account can surf the internet faster than your account. Both of your accounts rely on the same hard drive, although separated by memory. So I'd think that it is not your account you should be worrying about, it is the entire hard drive. Try deleting some unwanted programs and Temporary Internets. Oh, the Temporary Internet Files eat up a lot of memory so delete everything.

    There can be some processes accessing the Internet like wault.exe ,try to remove these processes ..if both users are logged that is if the other user account is not logging out both the user processes will run

  • Hy i am having a simmilar type of problem, when i use my account (administrator) the internet runs soooooooo slow, but when my brother or sis use there account (limited) it runs smoothly. so i tried making a new account what was limited and it ran smoothly, just administrator accounts take the p***.

    instead of setting up accounts and using administrator why not just use 1 account? It will use less space, and eliminates a lot of hassles with sharing files, or programs that won't run correctly

    Well, maybe your jealous for some reason, or your sister is connected to a different router.

    Source(s): Seen it before, yeah, the jealousy thing.
