Your DownThemAll! and Browser Version and Language and Operating System

DTA 3.0.8; Firefox 50.0 64Bit; Windows 10 1607

Expected Behavior

When I limit speed inside DTA to 100kB/s and there are no other internet activities, I would expect that windows task manager also will show about 100kB/s.

Actual Behavior

DTA set to 100kB/s does indead reduce the download speed displayed inside DTA, but task manager still shows full speed (in my case 1MB/s).
When I afterwards go back to unlimited speed inside DTA, than DTA shows very high rates, which are higher than physically possible by my internet rate of 1MB/s.

Steps To Reproduce

It seems, that the pc still is downloading at its maximum rate and is buffering the data until DTA takes it.

Additional info such as log extracts

I need possibility to limit maximum effective download speed of DTA to allow a second pc in my home network to share access to the internet too.

Seems like something like an Antivirus software or firewall is actually intercepting the download
