Preferred Solution: Firefox - Trouble Downloading...

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.)

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?

I am having trouble downloading anything from any website whether it's through IE, Netscape or AT&T browser. When I go to any website to download, computer acts like it's downloading, but the end result is a large solid window, except for a small white square in the upper left hand corner of this large white window.

A:i am having trouble downloading

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'm just going to copy and paste what I have posted everywhere:

-----------------------------

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!

downloading its not there, the download screen just disapears

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

My computer recently crashed and I reinstalled the operating system to fix it. 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.

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 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.

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 - my browser (IE5) is malfunctioning since I tried to download and run Microsoft's lovely "Critical Security updates." The other day, my browser opened to one of MS's occasional security alert pages. Unfortunately, I decided to follow their suggestions and the install did not work right. Now, when I click a link within a Web page to open a new browser window, it does not work. It just freezes. I also am unable to click a link within an Outlook Express message and open a new browser window.

Another new problem: When I go to IE Help, I get this box: "Internet Explorer Script Error, Line 78, char 1, Error in loading dll, do you want to continue loading scripts on this page?"

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.

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.

I have been having trouble downloading some files from a site that I have had no problems d/ling from in the past. I download a large (6M) file on my dial-up (1hr+) which I have done before w/no probs and it gets to 99% and then stops responding, causing me to have to end task it to unlock the window. I have turned off my screensavers, both discontinued all surfing and surfed to make sure the line stayed open, and generally babysat the things (tried several different files of roughly the same size) to no end. They will sometimes actually write the .zip file, but when they do it has "unknown errors". I have tried all of their mirrors, both in the US and abroad. The site is reputable and has been reliable in the past. I can d/l small files (up to 1MB) with no probs. I am using IE 6 for my browser on my Win98 machine (see sig). Any thoughts would be great. I really want those files!

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: <link to infected file removed> or <link to infected file removed> . 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
