Trouble downloading in ie9, vista

Q: Trouble downloading in ie9, vista

Hi all,

I am having trouble downloading attachments from emails on ie9 or downloading anything other than pictures.
When i try to download items i get to 100%, and then look in the file at where the item was downloading, and it is listed as 'partial download'. I then can't do anything with the file, when you double click on it it just takes you to the 'view downloads' window.
Resetting ie9 doesn't do anything, can anyone help?

Cheers, Kris

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.)

Ran the compatibility tests. Cleared all caches, cookies etc.

I have gone through all the registration stuff to get the download. After receiving the e-mail, I go to the link and get the following:

Thank you for participating in the Microsoft Windows Vista Customer Preview Program.

You have received the maximum number of Product Keys available for this program.

Note: Windows Vista Beta 2 can be installed and activated on up to 10 PCs using with one Product Key.

That reads to me like M$ thinks I have already used this to install on 10 PCs? I am trying this for the first time.

Anybody have any ideas?

I got a new laptop and removed Norton which was an option to purchase, and downloaded Avast home edition.

I sometimes download programs that have icons that look like this:
 unknown_icon_download.bmp   3.06KB
  16 downloads how can you download them on Xp it just says choose IE or select from list.

A:Trouble Downloading?

Hello,

The icon you see traditionally means that there is no application set to open the file in question. or that the file in question is corrupt. For example, downloading a microsoft word document and not having microsoft word instaled on the system. Could you say what the file is that you are downloading?

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:
-------------------
This is taking too long.
A few possible reasons why your download is failing:

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


i ran online panda scan and nothing shows , aside from that i checked
logs and comp seems to be clean

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

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. Within that small white square there's a even smaller red square in it's left hand corner. Then below that is a blue triangle. Then to the right of those two small objects, there's a small black circle. I have searched and searched the internet for any explanations, but to no aval. Even AT&T couldn't explain it either when they tried to use their remote assistance to help me with downloading their software. I have taken a picture of this weird looking icon with my cell phone. If anyone out there would give me their cell phone # I'll send the picture to you. I have dug deep into IE's internet options, but don't see anything that should be blocking me from downloading.

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!

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.

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.

Hi everybody.

My wife is a medical transcriptionist and has to download wav. files from a FTP site every day. Recently we switched to Cox cable internet and she started having problems downloading files. The files can range in size and generally when the files are 30mb or greater, the download never completes now.

My question is would this problem be on our end as a result of a firewall or router or something like that, or would it be an issue with the file, the FTP website, or the new ISP? We also just started using Vonage too.

Thank you for any help.

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)

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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?" And Help does not work. Finally, one more change: I used to be able to type Control-F while on a Web page and the Find function box would pop open. Doesn't happen now.

When I first attempted to download the Microsoft security patch/update, I got a message saying I needed to first download IE 5.5, SP1. I had IE 5.05 at the time, which was working perfectly well. Wish I had left it alone! One more thing. When I used the IE Install Wizard after the IE5.5 SP1 download, I at first opted for the "minimal" install of browser only, without taking the new Outlook Explorer and Media Player. Did this screw things up? After having these problems, I ran IEsetup.exe a second time and opted for "typical install," including Outlook Explorer and Media Player but it... Read more

I've been trying to download Java for my computer for about a week or so, since Cybertech told me that I needed to uninstall my outdated version and upgrade to the new one. However, every time I try to install it, I get an error message about the file not being valid. I've checked the properties and apparently it's an empty file.

I use Firefox as my internet browser, and I've turned off my extensions, because I thought that the No-Script or something was messing up the download....still didn't download it. So then I turned off Spy-bot, AVG, Ad-Aware; but I STILL couldn't get a file that actually contained anything. What is going on? Why can't I download this file? Thanks in advance for the help!!
