You and your contact might try turning off the QoS Packet Scheduler. To do so, click Start,
then All Programs, then Accessories, then Communications, and then Network Connections.
Right click your network/internet connection, then click Properties. Uncheck the QoS Packet
Scheduler, then reboot and try again. If you're unable to uncheck QoS, simply select the
Uninstall button instead (note that this won't affect anything else).
