Downloading at 700KB/s-1MB/s a sec and it's only at 10% after 20+ minutes?

Sadness ensues.

However, I am now seeing some really intense light bleeding (REALLY bad in La Valette Dungeon, and still noticeable in Flotsam). I've got patch 1.1 of course. I wonder what's causing this, now that I've got all the latest fixes?
cap 3 is causing it.

That would be the obvious culprit since I downloaded it last. I don't get it, though. I thought it was fixing the issue for people.

Awesome (not really). Thanks for the info, though.

Quick question. Everytime I get burnt a "new ability" notification pops up that says pyromaniac. What is this? Also, how do I delete some of my saves? It takes forever when I press esc.

If you hit C, bring up your character pane, then click on Abilities in the lower right corner, then in the upper left click the last of the 3 little circle icons and you'll see all of Geralt's secret special abilities that you earn by initiating undocumented "challenges" in the game. For instance, if you find that special little Easter Egg near the Ballista in the Prologue, you earn the Assassin ability. I'm not sure what they all are off-hand, but Pyromaniac must involve setting Geralt ablaze. Each ability maxes out at level 3, but the game will continue to give you the notification if you continue to trigger the ability challenge, even though you aren't actually leveling it up anymore.

As for the saves, unfortunately every time you hit F5 you generate a new save slot - no such thing as overwriting quicksaves in The Witcher games. Saves are stored under Documents/The Witcher 2.
