Q: Solved: Trouble Downloading

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.

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.)

Ok, so last night I bought a netbook, and a NETGEAR WGR614 Wireless-G 54Mbps Broadband Router. I installed the router on my desktop (that runs vista)and everything went fine. But during that, I had to uninstall my Spybot S&D and Malware Bytes.

After I installed everything, my sister was on the netbook (windows 7) and she was trying to download FireFox and she got a "This file was blocked because it does not have a valid digital signature that verifies it's publisher." so I told her I would deal with it in the morning.

So I woke up, and started getting the desk top put back together before I worked on the net book. I tried downloading Spybot, and I got the same error as my sister did with FireFox. So I went and tried to download MalwareBytes. Same thing. And I tired downloading them from different places. No luck.
Searching online I found that I had to go into tools, internet options, and click and unclick some boxes that deal with digital signatures.

That semi worked. I was able to actually finish the download, but then I got a "The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program."

Searching online again I found something that told me to clear cache and such, so I did that, and restarted the comp (mainly because I was getting angry) tried downloading again. No such luck. Then another place told me to right click the download, and save the target on the desktop under another name. Did that, THEN when I double clicked the ic... Read more

I used to be able to do this easily but not having done it for a long time I've forgotten how. Sorry I'm very ignorant of computer jargon. I purchased an ebook at booktopia which gave the link to instal adobe digital editions. I tried many times and kept getting the message that it had to close down. I finally did get it to install but it doesn't seem to function. I can get it to open the book but there are no options to do anything but look at it. The file is meant to be epub but it seems to be read only, and not epub. I want to get it onto an ereader for my grandchild. I have a simple e reader that I've been able to put many free books from Gutenberg in the past. Nobody answers the question at adobe forums. I have windows xp. Hope someone can help me. Thanks.

have a friend of mine that recently brought me is laptop
to look at, and i cant put my finger on whats going on

it wont download anything, it will seem as though it is for instance

i went to download firefox for him
and i set to save to desktop when prompted however when its finished
downloading its not there, the download screen just disapears
upon completion even though box isnt checked,

so i tried just to run it and it gets to point where window pops up
to install and click instal and window vanishes and nothing happens

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
and it does this on everything thats downloaded or rather attempted

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..

im wondering if the windows defender is a culprit here but i deleted it and still nothing, but maybe still remnants in registry or something

i hope that made sense and if any1 has any ideas please help

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".========================================================================

Unfortuneatly though, when I tried to download AIM the "download box" immediately dissapeared; making me unable to download it. I tried downloading other things, such as Flash, but everytime the download box opens, it closes alomst a nano second after it opens. Then same thing happens whenever I try to download things from my email too!

Is there some way to fix this problem?

A:Downloading Trouble

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.

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.

I recently installed WinXP. I had WinME before this, very few problems.
I formatted, installed WinXP, and everything is fine, except one thing. I
cannot downloading anything. for instance, I go to http://www.aim.com , and
I try to DL AOL Instant Messenger. The dialog may or may not pop up, and
when it does, I select a folder to download to, and the Time Remaining stays
blank, Transfer Rate is blank, and the Progress Bar does not move. The file
doesn't download. One of my friends told me something about having an NTFS
system instead of FAT32. I dont know if this will fix it, but if there is
something easier, I'll take that instead. I have RoadRunner Cable, I Obtain
IP and DNS addresses automatically, and am through a router. I have released
and renewed my IPs twice. I did not have this problem before WinXP came
along. I'm not a computer newbie, so I have tried all the menial things,
like Virus Scanners, Cookies, IE options, etc.. I would greatly appreciate
help please!

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.

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?

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,

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.

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.

Please point me in the right direction.Without too much understanding, I've looked at IE settings, ZoneAlarmSuite settings, privacy settings, mobile code, few others and can't find anything resembling 'block zip files'.This is the exact IE 6 message (I just removed a bunch of blank lines from it)You are not authorized to view this page You might not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied.

Alright, so when I download a torrent persay, it usually downloads through limewire but i somehow messed around and messed it up. So now, it tries to download through itunes....how do I change it so that it downloads back through limewire?

A:Downloading music trouble

Two things:
First: there is no safe way to deal with P2P, and my firm is inundated with calls and computers everyday from people who don't believe me, and thought some free AV program on the web would help them.

Second: the likelihood of pirated data being passed over torrent or Limewire is about 100%, give or take, and I'll answer no question about them.

You have a simple file associations problem, but given the context, I can't condone the process, and won't be helping on this one.

I'm having trouble downloading files as in
"The page cannot be displayed"

but I don't think it's the site, as I tried others.

Last thing I did was install MS AntiSpyware, but basically turned off a lot of the auto-updates in that program.

Is it that or something to check in IE settings?

thanks

 

A:Trouble Downloading / MS Antispyware

Turn On Auto-updates in MS-antispyware and reset websettings in Tools>Internet options>programs> click "Reset Web Settings" and press '"Yes" then restore IE settings....Tools>internet options>Advanced> click on "restore defaults" then click "Apply" and 'ok'. if still not downloading uninstall MS-antispyware and then download any thing if it does then reinstall MS-antispyware and dont disable Auto-updates again.

In response to your Report:

If you have solved your issue you can post back the solution and mark the thread as solved using the Mark Solved button above your thread; this lets other people know the solution and lets the helpers know that you no longer need assistance.

Also be be advise that the Malware Removal section is very busy due to the high number of infections and it can take 24 hours or more to get a response and if your thread has been lost you can also bump it up by posting to it again. Patience is required as their is only a limited number of quality helpers giving their time for free. Also if you still need help with TIS 2010 or having your HJT log read and checked for infections you can post it.

Hey everyone, I'm having trouble downloading PDF files. I downloaded Adobe Flash Player but before I did this, I opened the specific file using Word Notepad and it turned out encripted. Now, even though I've downloaded Adobe Acrobat it still only opens the PDF file in notepad. Can anyone help?

Why can't I access certain documents? I turned the Accounts Control off, but that didn't do the job.

Do you have the software on your PC to access the documents?

I have access to a file sharing site and am having trouble downloading the MS Word documents. I keep getting a message the "Internet Explorer cannot download...HID=FA2_14&operation download from www.ibackup.com. Internet Explorer wasn ot able to download to open this intenet site. The requesteed siteis either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again." All the other participants running Window XP are having no problems. I can download some of the PDF files. I tried saving them instead of opening and that doesn't work either. I tried using my laptop which is running XP and had no problems. My desktop is currently running Windows XP SP2. I even shut down my Secretmaker and Zone Alarm and still no luck. I haven't been able to find any tips from Microsoft to fix it that I can understand. Any ideas?

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.
