I'm no win32 networking expert, but a few things I'd try:

- Make sure you aren't using any kind of software firewall or virus
checker that includes firewall features.

- Try turning off Sendfile with "EnableSendfile off" in httpd.conf.  (Also
do the same with EnableMMAP.

- See if it is an apache-specific problem by using some other protocol to
transfer the files and see if you get better speed.
