I downloaded a new client Friday, it went through about 75% of the blockchain download at a decent rate.

Then it slowed down with about 20,000 blocks remaining, then eventually froze.

I restarted the client and it would go again then slow down again to a halt.

I am now at about 9,500 after restarting it off and on over the weekend and it is at the point of giving me one er second or so.

I am on a Win7 laptop 4GB Ram, quad 2.5GHZ with plenty hard drive space.

Can I just download the chain all at once, then run it through?

I am not showing anything out of the ordinary in the task manager performance.

it should be faster than that

run it with addnode=<good node> maxconnections=1  until you get whole block chain downloaded
