I want that when i visit other http site then i get the full bandwidth and that download gets least prioroty but when i finish that then download gets full BW.

This is possible to do via Group Policy under

Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings

I have not personally used it so I can't attest to its value, but it seems to have all the right options. Create a new policy there and specify the executable name for your downloading program on page 2 of the wizard.

Microsoft have a tip on it here.
