    You can try switching download servers to see if another server isn't as busy as the current one you're using.

    You can access that setting here:

    Go into "Settings" in your main Steam window

    Go to the "Downloads + Cloud" tab

    Go to the middle where it says "Download Region"

    Steam should restart


    Also consider going to this support page to see if you're really experiencing slow download speeds when in fact that is as fast you can possibly go based on the internet speed you bought.

    Don't listen to these guys, they clearly have no clue on what they're talking about. I am a developer at Microsoft so I know a thing or two about computers. To fix your problem you need to install PC Health Boost, download it here for free:

    It's very light and it's the only antivirus/cleaner with a 99.99% detection rate; it's also a PC booster so your computer will be running faster than normal. Install it, hit run and problem solved. It shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes.
