Q: Trouble Downloading Stuff

Hey guyz, i have trouble downloading things. Sometiems it works, sometimes it doesnt, its gonna download and it stops at 99%.... i turned off every firewall but its still doing it, even in IRC, when i try to download something, it stops at 99%... then if i resume the download, its gonna finish downloading but the file is always corrupt and not working. What's the problem? I'm almost sure its not a virus, it's some high security thing but i dont know what, i got nvidia Forceware but i turned it off... even the windows firewall with SP2. Can anyone help me? It's really annoying, thanks!

Preferred Solution: Trouble Downloading Stuff

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Trouble Downloading Stuff

Try to download in safemode with networking. maybe its a program causing the problem.

I am currently downloading Team Fortress 2 on steam and my brother's pc is freazing up.

How can i fix this.

P.S. If this is in the wrong section please move it.

A:Lag on my brother's pc when downloading stuff.

Hello ej and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried downloading TF2 on another computer to see if it also lags or freezes? If it does it could be a problem with the download site rather than the computer.

Other factors that could affect the download include how much memory is installed (2GB RAM is considered the minimum for Windows 7 with 4GB being the sweet spot), hard drive problems like bad sectors, failing HD, etc., malware on the machine, and a whole lot more.

Here's a tutorial that covers how to optimize Windows 7. Some of the suggestions may not apply to your brother's machine but others will.

And another Forum member created this checklist of maintenance tasks that should help any computer. Heed his warning about NOT using registry cleaners.

I find various files I want to get from Xolox and click to download them but they simply remain in the transfer folder. Any way to get them or do I just need to ask for those files again and hope to get lucky?
 

A:Xolox not downloading stuff

Hiya

Thats a new file-sharer to me

Have you read the FAQ:

http://www.xolox.nl/client/support/faq.html

Are they getting to 99%, and hanging:

Q. My download hangs on 99% or 100% and is does not seem to finish?
A. XoloX is working on the last segment and a connection may be lost or segment corrupt. A new host is needed and that may take some time. Look at the status of the download (number of hosts in buffer, attempting contact etc.) and you'll notice Xolox is trying. Give it some time to finish. Note: All completed transfers remain showing as 100% done and is not the question being addressed here. If the 'download status' shows as 'finished' then it is complete.
A2. If you an anti-virus such as Norton running disable it while downloading. The reason the file can't complete is because Norton in scanning the partial files won't release them as XoloX attempts to create the single file from the multiple partials.

I don't know if its my internet, PC, or router, but heres my problem: When I go to downloading something it randomly stops (sometimes half way through, sometimes at the beginning, it varies) and I have to close it and start it up again, then it will pause again or go all the way. I have to keep restarting the download until it reaches the end. Does anyone know what my problem is, and how to fix it?

Heya. Call me Gio. So, i've made a wrong turn and ended up downloading this russian installer. Seems like i missclicked something and ended up getting myself in a sticky situation:First, i got this new browser (copypasted from chrome, wasnt chromium, it was something along the lines of "Go!". Cant remember.Secondly, a few suspicious browser extensions appeared and the default search motor was changed, no biggie, usually happens. Turns out that even if i changed my motor to Google, the search motor wouldnt change. Had to restart chrome by default and uninstall the bad browser. Everything relatively easy at this point.Thirdly, CMD popped up started downloading some stuff (Couldnt get the names, it was pretty fast, it was something along the lines of "Ccyx-stuff stuff"). Then i popped up Avira and Malwarebytes. Did some scanning and CMD popped up again,Fourthly. Got this CMD:  https://imgur.com/i2cblKy
Basically says that a task called "oiemMex" was created, and the bitsadmin. Then i checked the task scheduler and turns out, it was there and it was supposed to open a program called "XASormJT" on Program Files. Deleted the file and tried deleting the task, but it didnt work, so now im here.Edit: While desperatedly checking the scheduler, i found other two that are supposed to start every three hours: EOrUYoez.bat and IwPFYU.exe.

You may be infected with Poweliks or Xswkit (aka Gootkit, a Poweliks clone) which typically affects the ability to browse or download files using Internet Explorer and causes PowerShell error alerts. Task Manager typically shows numerous occurrences of (COM Surrogate) dllhost.exe or dllhst3g.exe. If using a 64-bit version of Windows, then these entries will be listed as dllhost.exe *32 or dllhst3g.exe *32. These processes are known to spawn and consume a large amount of system resources. When attempting to download files in Internet Explorer you may receive the message "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded." or you may see a pop-up alert advising that "powershell (powershell.exe) has stopped working".If you are having trouble downloading files with Internet Explorer, follow these instructions to re-enable downloads/reset all Security zones to default.

ive check temp folders and cleared them ive tried system restore
set all internet options to default closed all virus programs,
no firewall up and still nothing

its funny because there is no errors that come up it just acts as though
nothing happened , created a folder for downloads and assigned everything to download to it and following downloads nothings there..

Boxergirl I don't know HOW you are downloading Win10, but the best way to do it is using the Media Creation Tool:  Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help With this tool, you have the option of (1) creating Win10 installation media (USB or DVD), (2) downloading an ISO file, (3) updating the PC directly.  What I recommend is getting an 8GB USB stick and using option (1) to create installation media, then inserting that media and running the Upgrade. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------If my posts helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on my post to say thanks.If my posts solved your problem please click "Accept As Solution".========================================================================

Hi all.

I couldn't find any threads that cover my exact issue and I assume that this is the correct section of the board to post in... anyway, my issue is as follows:

IE8 won't allow me to download any programs. The download box pops up as normal and the progress bar goes to 100% but then it just closes and the download is nowhere to be seen. The search function won't find it either; the program is not on my computer.

The only bits of advice I've found online is to download Firefox (which would be great if it wasn't for the initial downloading problem) and also altering permissions in the Component Services bit (dcomcnfg), which did nothing.

I've also turned off Windows Firewall and am using Kaspersky 2011 with all permissions set so that it doesn't delete stuff automatically.

I also had an issue with uTorrent that I believe to be related: Whenever I clicked on a link to download a torrent, uTorrent wouldn't pick up on the fact that I was attempting to add a torrent to the download list. I was able to add a new torrent by inputting the URL but they would invariably fail.

(Foolishly, I had a bit of a tantrum and uninstalled uTorrent so as to install BitComet but then realised that I couldn't download that anyway. I blame quitting smoking.)

Any ideas?

Certainly. Make sure all drivers are installed. And try getting Microsoft updates then downloading and installing other software.

The worst case scenerio would be : you had a bad stick of ram and windows installation was corrupt. However I think you will be able to solve this problem with windows updates.

I don't know whether this is an XP or an IE thing...

I inhereted this laptop at my company. I have full admin rights to it, btw.

This is kind of tough to explain. When I go to download certain types of programs - not files with a direct link to the file, but something that's supposed to run an installer on my machine - I don't get a prompt to download the software and the files don't start to download.

For example, go to http://download.sidestep.com/get/k00...&param=onlyGet

If you click I Agree, it should start to download a file. Except on my machine, it won't. I've had this same problem at other sites and it's becoming a major issue - I can't DL the webconferencing software we use, either.

I've gone into IE tools/Security/Custom Level and made sure that everything in ActiveX will download (or at least prompt me), but I don't get the pop-up box to download these types of programs. I've dropped my security levels to the bare minimums, but that didn't help either.

For what it's worth, the Sidestep site listed above gives me this error message:

Hi,

I want to install a POI loader for my GPS on my computer. When I try to select a folder where data files can be found, a message reads "There are no data files in that folder. Please specify a folder that contains at least 1 file with a (.csv) or (.gpx) extension." This is my first time ever downloading any GPS software, so I don't believe I would have any files with those extensions. What should I do?

Thanks

Lately I have been having download problems. Today I tried to install Malwarebytes on my computer and when I get to the box at the bottom of the screen that says...

"Do you want to open or save mbam-setup-1_75_0_1300.exe (9.80 MB) from fs12.Filehippo.com"

Open Save Cancel

When I click on the open button nothing happens, same with the save and cancel button. Even the red X, close button doesn't work. Sometimes I will get a box that pops up asking me what I want to use to open it with, Adobe, Internet Explorer, ect. but when I try one of those it doesn't work either. Thanks for any ideas on whats going on.

Hi All

My os system is XP & I currently use IE.

I am having problems installing Adobe Flash Player 9. I have searched my computer & I already have it installed but when I visit sites that require it, a message appears saying that Flash Player 9 is not installed and click here to upgrade. When I do, I click run then nothing else happens. I have followed adobes help topic to ensure to allow certain programmes etc but still nothing happens.

I am not sure what to do now as I need it for work. Should I uninstall everything and try again. If so, how do I do that.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Regards
Paul

A:Trouble Downloading Flash 9

Hi woodman , i would suggest the first thing you should do is test to see which version of flash player is installed on your pc. To do this click on this link , then on the "web players testing site" link. When the Macromedia flash player box appears click on the "about" tab to determine what version you are running. If it shows you are running version 9 and you are still having problems then try a reinstall. To remove it download the uninstaller from here . Although it says it's for version 8 i have used it to remove version 9. Once that's done download the latest version from here , reboot your pc and run the flash player test to see if all is ok then try the sites that have been giving you problems.

I just reformatted recently, wasn't having trouble, just felt it was time. After a fresh install of Windows 7 I get a pop up saying "digital signature required", after trying to install graphics driver. I tried downloading again but I don't think it installed correctly. Looking in the device manager it tells me this: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)
I'm getting this for pretty much everything that requires one (digitally signed drivers)... Also there's a problem is preventing Windows troubleshooter from starting. I can't even update windows, says service is not running...
I'm on a HP Pavilion m6-1045dx Entertainment Notebook
I never had to deal with anything like this on any of my computers /laptops /desktops.. only this HP!

While I was downloading Windows 8.1, I accidentally shut my laptop off (which it clearly states not to do during the download) and now I cant download 8.1

It used to give me an error code but now it just says "cannot download windows 8.1" or "your windows 8.1 download could not be completed" in the windows store.

I'm not a techy so English words would be much appreciated.

pls halp.

Here is my original problem in a nutshell. I am a beginner. I installed an old windows xp i had (2002). After installation i couldn't connect to the internet. I checked the drivers, and sure enough, they had a ? next to their name. I needed these drivers: ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller, video controller. I have only 1 computer, so i thought i should try the ubuntu (linux) cd i had. I installed ubuntu, and now i have internet. I went to dell.com/support and tried downloading drivers. I get this "delldriverdownloadmanager.application", a plain text document, 9.3 kb in size (not the 3.3 mb size i expect). I don't think this is the correct driver application. I cannot open it in winzip. I don't know what i am doing wrong. Can i download these drivers using a linux OS? Any help would be appreciated.

A:Trouble downloading drivers

It looks like Dell is trying to make you use a download manager to download the drivers (why they do this I do not know), try looking for a direct download link, if you can't find one, you can try using a friend's computer to download the ethernet drivers.

Hi All, I wanted to do an online virus scan but it appears that I cannot download the entire bundle of tools before the scan can start. I first tried F-Secure and everything seems to go well until the download is half done and that's as far as I get. It keeps disconnecting from the network and then reconnects and trys again until finally a message comes up stating that it cannot download the rest of the file and try again later. I have tried later many times but to no avail. I also tried this with Housecall and got the same results but it didn't disconnect from the network. I did have a trojan but my AVG 8 found it and I was able to get rid of it both in my files and in system restore. I sincerly hope someone can help me. I am running WindowsXP SP2 , Internet Explorer 7. It is an HP Pavilion a320n, 2800+, 1GB ram. It is over 5 years old. I have a high speed satilite connection. Thank you.

Hello, I'm running Vista 32 bit, and I'm trying to download a file. It's been posted on mediafire and the developer's website, but I can't get it to download. A link to it is here: http://vne.x10.mx/dfo-vne/DFO-Vne3.2.zip or http://www.mediafire.com/?ngmflwcn50pytsp . Both have the same issue.

It's had a few versions uploaded, and I can't download any of them. I've tried downloading it on the latest IE, Firefox, and Google Chrome, and they return errors such as "The file cannot be downloaded", "Source file cannot be read" and "Download was interrupted". Trying with the Downthemall addon for firefox returned the error "Size Mismatch *".

Incomplete .part and .tmp files can be found in the download and temporary folders.

I know that many people have downloaded it and not experienced this error (I just watched my friend download it over teamviewer, but attempts for him to transfer it over to me have failed as well. When I click the file, it says something along the lines of it not being found), so it seems specific to my computer, and not a problem with the website.

The file has chinese characters in it, which I believe might be a source of the problem, but I don't know. Is there any way I can download this file?

Any help would be much appreciated,

Navywalrus

A:Trouble Downloading Files

Try using 'Download Accelerator Plus' Its free to try. You obviously have a problem in windows but please try DAP 1st just to check if that can download anything. This should eliminate any doubt that your internet connection may be causing the problem. Then we can take it from there
