Good BroadBand Speeds but Poor Ping results!

I have asked my ISP about slow web pages and poor ping results they have advised the the ping results are ok, but the time for the first hop between the PC and my Routes is where the worst of the time delay occurs, and have advised that I look at my Anti-Virus and Firewall programmes as they may be the reason for the delays. I am using ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus and Firewall (the all in one programme) Spybot and Spyware Blaster, also DoNotTrackMe and Rapport in Firefox. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit. The PC seems to be slowing down in general, I have run cclean and this has found many problems with the Resgister and cleared them out. Does anyone have some ideas for checking programmes which may slow the ping times. My Broadband speed is averaging 5200mbps which is very good! So some thing must be causing the problems, but what?
