my internet seems to be slowing down these days because of the cold. Is there something that can help accelerate my net speed? Anyone know of such a thing that actually works?

Um, warm it up?
You don't tell us exactly what "your internet" is. Dialup? DSL? Cable? Wireless? DSL Reports has some tweaks you can try.
Make sure you don't have any spyware. It can hog precious resources, including bandwidth.

I have Airtel "DSL".I don't think my PC possess much spyware. I ran a doctor spyware scan and deleted everything it found. I found this product called ActiveSpeed here anyone used it? It says it will increase the speed by 375% no bull!. Anyone has any experience with this or other such products?

Apparently it is tweaking network parameters (i.e. MTU, PMTU, RWIN, and TTL). You can read up on how to do the same tweaks at DSLReports.
It has a free trial. Why not give it a run? Of course, you should use a reliable third party (DSLReports) to measure your connection speed before and after. I'd put money on them rigging the numbers on their own tests!

I would restart it but I'm just discovering my super powers and I don't want to break anything. And I would blow on it except my new year's resolution was not to suck at the internet.

I tried that, but the token fell out of my token ring network (with apologies to Scott Adams).
