Impossible to download anything

Q: Impossible to download anything

Hello guys,
I have a very frustrating problem and i really can't imagine any way to solve it without help. The problem is quite simple to explain : I simply can't downlaod anything "big".
let's check details. I have two browsers, Ie and Firefox. I ve been using firefox for years but i recently bought a new comp, and Ie came along with vista.
Whenever i try to download a "big file" with firefox, let's say a game's patch, i recieve an error message after 2-3 minutes saying that the dowlaod will stop because the source file will not be read.
if i try with Ie after about the same amount of time i got an error message saying that the time allocated to the operation has been...

As you imagine this is already frustrating enough in itself, but today i discovered that the problem had somehow extended to streaming, i cannot load any file completely...

my config is brand new from A to Z, so i really don't know where to look for.

Any Idea ?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: Impossible to download anything

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: Impossible to download anything

Does your Internet keep dropping (Are you on wireless or something?).

Your topic suggests you can't download "anything", yet below you say you have trouble downloading "anything big". I'm assuming you can download small files?

You could always try using a download manager rather than using your browser to download the files. Search the forums for a thread on download managers if you want to find out more.

Leechget is what i use at present.

Regards,

Nnahrino

j The wife goes to there coupon sites, especially Pillsbury.com. Need help. Cannot download their coupon printer software no matter what I do. I am running Kaspersky Internet Suite, have Spybot, SAS, and MAM installed but in passive mode as KAS conflicts with them in active mode. Really nobody at all could figure it out when I asked the question in the forums anyway. AS soon as I click on the install coupon printer in Pillsbury.com, it seems to want to go to the website and gets rerouted and back to the page with the print coupons button again. No download box, no nothing. It says I am supposed to click o.k. download box will appear. Fat chance. Nothing but rerouted back to the original page. Used both IE and Firefox disabled everything I could cookies, phising, add-blockers, etc in both IE and Firefox. Have gone so far as to disable Kaspersky for 10 seconds to install the coupon printer software, no luck there either. Any ideas about this would be appreciated as I am not computer stupid, have done everything. Checked to see if printer was default, it is.

Any ideas out there. If I went to another computer, downloaded the coupon printer software, copied it to my flashdrive then installed it on my computer would that work or not.

Here is my problem. Just this passed Saturday I downloaded a program called Gamevance.exe to become a gold member on a Pokemon RPG. The RPG is safe. Anyways a link to the download was provided on the website, PokemonToxic.net. It was only after the program was downloaded that really bad things started happening. Not sure if the file was correctly named/spelled through my knowledge, but it is Gamevance. After the program downloaded, it was bundled with a desktop weather tracker, which may have been a huge mistake on my part. Avira then told me Gamevance was adware, so I tried removing it, and it worked. But now my wireless mouse is really laggy with movement, on nearly every window. Ultimately, I cannot run or download DDS or GMER. I had to use my sisters computer to even get on the forums. Any help/ideas are very appreciated.

Hey, I'm downloading a game from Origin and my speed has shot up to 12mb/s, now I know that is impossible because the max I can ever get is 2.3mb/s.

Here is my router's page shown next to the download to prove that it is impossible lol.


At first it was downloading at my normal speed but it just gradually went up and then hovered around 8mb/s to 12mb/s for about 5minutes then it went back to normal again around 1.5mb/s.

What happened ? How is this possible ?

Thanks,
Danny K

A:Impossible download speed shown from Origin

This might not be the answer, though I have seen similar events.

Your d/l speed is a little down for your attenuation (but that might be because if the way your modem synchs with your exchange), and would indicate you're about 1.0 - 1.5 km from your exchange (or sub exchange if you use RIMs in the UK). With a SNR of 5.6 you must have good line quality to have a stable connection at that SNR (Typically ISPs aim for an SNR of around 6.0).

When data gets cached you can see speeds that look unrealistic. This data can be cached on your PC (If you have previously downloaded, or started to download something), or at some point close to you.

Eg. Some ISPs cache large amounts of data to give the impression they are providing better services than they really are.

Just my observations. There is probably a better explanation for this.

Hi, I've tried Dell forums but I'm not getting anywhere so I decided to try Windows 7 forums for help.
I had to do a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on my Dell Inspiron N7110 laptop and after I'd done that, discovered there were no drivers on the disc supplied with the computer.
I get to the Dell website and then discover I cannot download the drivers on my desktop to copy over to my laptop because of DellSystemDetect. The drivers have to be downloaded on the Dell laptop which cannot connect to the Internet!
I was wondering if there were any experts here, who could give me instructions on how to download a network driver, which can then be copied and installed on to my laptop, so that I can connect to the Internet to download the other drivers I need from Dell?

I recently bought a wireless card for my desktop. Previously I was using a fob-type usb adapter. When I used the usb adapter I was able to achieve download speeds of around 1 MB/s and stream 1080p video, but with the card my download speed maxes out at about 250 kB/s and it takes a few minutes for the same video quality to load, if it does at all. I'd ordinarily blame the card entirely for this problem, but when I test my connection speed with it, I get far higher results. Additionally, my upload speeds with the card can often rise to 500+ kB/s and are generally higher than my download speeds at all times. Just wondering if anyone could tell me what exactly is going on here.

A:Slow download speed and nearly impossible video streaming

Hi Alphabetter. There's more than one approach to troublshoot this. First thing that pops into my head is, since we ar edealing with wireless, maybe you are dropping packets. Do you know how to open a command prompt and use the ping command? I would try pinging something on the internet:
ping google.com -t
and let that run while you test some of those things you are trying to do. If you are getting a few timeouts, that would cause "slowness". Also, look at what the ping times are (latency). This is a good first step to troubleshoot such an issue.

Can you tell us a little more about your wireless service? Are we talking about a wireless ISP? And has your service contract or service level changed at all when you switched devices?


One question: Where are you getting 1080p content from the internet??? (if I may ask)

A:How is this even impossible?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me. Please tell me what to do. I was told that it was very complex and destructive hack file. Am I infected again?

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

I was recently trying to download a file on a trusted site (I'd used the site before without any problems). I found this program called optimizer pro on my desktop, so I deleted and uninstalled the program. A couple days afterwards, I see my computer running super slowly and an Optimizer Pro pop-up appears. I go to uninstall it again, and it says the un-installation files are missing. I go download optimizer pro again for the un-installation files and my computer doesn't complete the download. It says -Network Error-, So I go look up a solution on google chrome and all it says is "Try Again Later". So I'm stuck with Optimizer pro which seemingly slows down my PC, and I can't download anything to get it off of my computer because of the constant network error. So I thought maybe there was a solution inside the OS that someone on here knows about.color=#000099]Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum, as suggested by Staff.

Hello,

First i'm french, so sorry for my bad words or setences.

I use a acer computer with vista sp1. I've got 3 parts on my hdd.
That is to say an eisa part for recovery, second part C: for vista premium and a third one for datas.

I've downloaded seven on the microsoft website and burn it with nero 7 and imagburn.

Noone works correctly, the best is that one i've burned with imagburn. speed 2.4 on an rw and 4 with an r

Each time i try to install seven, i've got the install page, i press "' install now"', and i received that beautifull message ..

"' windows couldt not collect information ( for os image ) in the specefied image files ( install.wim ) does not exist "'

I've checked my iso disc and the "' install.wim "' really exist on the dvd.

An other detail, each time after pressing "' install now "' and before the beautiful message my floppy tries to run.

If you have ideas or tips, they are welcome.

Sincerely yours,
Labougie,

A:impossible instal of seven

It is probably your installation media causing the problem..

This happens when it cannot verify the install.wim image on the DVD.

Try changing DVD discs brand, or using an external DVD rom drive. Perhaps yours is failing. If anything else fails, try installing from a USB stick.

I am still having wierd problems with my computer. It all started, when I installed Roxio Media creator 7 ( and than un-installed it cause it gave me problems.) It put in the standard VGA driver, and my graphics accleleration was dead slow.

There was a second monitor, but I removed it for troubleshooting. The PC has plenty of HD space, 1 GB of 333 RAM, and a 2.4 GHX CPU. It is running XP Pro.

When I open my first webpage after sign on or switching screen names, it takes like 7 minutes to load. It starts with "downloading from site", than it goes back to "starting downloading from site", and it takes forever. It usually opens pages normally after that, but not always. Same thing happens even afterwards, if I start IE. And when I load WinMX, it starts scanning for shared files(1000's) and gets stuck in the place. It takes like 5 minutes to load.

This is probably not the right place to ask, but does anyone know of a simple way of saving to a file in My Documents (for later burning) a piece of music that's playing on my computer from a CD in the drive or something downloaded from the net?

Ideally I'm looking to have a software icon in my taskbar which I can click to start recording something I'm listening to on my computer.

I would really appreciate any help with this.

A:The Impossible Dream? Is It?

There are applications that can do this. One that I know of is Virtual Audio Cable. I've used it and it works well, but it cost's $30.A free alternative may be the LineIn Plugin for WinAmp, though I've never tried it.Please note that using such applications for copyright infringement is a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (in the USA) and/or equivalent national laws outside the USA.

Hi there.

This morning, while attempting to move some files around my Windows 7 64bit laptop began telling me that I didn't have permission to do so, as I needed permission from the "TrustedInstaller". I googled this issue and resolved it by configuring permissions.

Feeling a little suspicious I decided to run Malwarebytes. As I attempted to install it, when asked what language I wanted - the program defaults to "Bosanski". Being that I work in IT and have cleaned hundreds of machines I installed it anyway and was able to blindly walk my way through it and run a scan. It came back clean.

I then went to "Region and Language" in the Control Panel and once I got in there, all the values started scrolling around madly until it settled on "Afrikaans (South Africa).

I then went to download Speccy, as to give you a screenshot of my system specs and the installer did the same thing. It chose the "Portuguese" language. I then tried to download some other programs and they all did the same thing.

Another bug that is happening is that when I attempt to move any files, Windows will not allow me to scroll down...it locks onto "My Documents" and then if I scroll down and choose a different directory...it immediately scrolls back up to My Documents.

I'm at my wits end with this, as googling as brought me nothing. One thread came close to what I was describing but it had no resolution. And most of the things from his log appear identi... Read more

A:Nearly Impossible To Describe, But I'll Try

Trustedinstaller *belongs* to the operating system and should not be moved or modified in any way. Also, keep in mind, just because you scanned with MBAM and came up clean, doesn't mean that your system, is in fact, clean. It sure sounds like malware, or some kind of virus, to me. If you have an installed AV, run a full system scan. Perhaps you could try restoring to a point before you had issues. I don't believe Trustedinstaller would have anything to do with the language issues that you are experiencing.

Hello Guys, I have a really big problem which I can't solve it.
Recently I bought a 2GB Micro SD card from someone and I attempt to format it but i'm receiving a message: "Windows was unable to complete the format".
Tryed to delete them but an error is occurring.
I did an AVG Antivirus, SuperAntiSpyware, Trojan Remover and STOPzilla! scan but i find three viruses:
-Worm/AutoRun.MB
-Worm/Brontok.EZ
-Klif Trojan
but its pointless since after I remove them, they reapear.
I've attempted to delete them with Unlocker but it requires to restart and after that they reapear again.
I've even Booted a Partition Manager an wipe/delete the partition on the card using all the 35 steps format it and it took me 4 hrs. but no use. They are still there.
And even formating my card on my other friend's phones/digital cameras and is no use. The files are still there.
The card contains 220MB of corrupted, cross-linked and virused files. I tried to scandisk it but after the scan and repair, the same exact files remained there. Its like the card has a secret reservoir which replaces back all the "bad" files.
Table of files:
Folders: GFS_TMP, IMF090~1, IMF090~2, IMF090~2, IMF090~3, WA1D5E~3, WA1D5E~2(these folders contain files with weird names like random characters and various sizes like 3,5GB), WapTemp, sryk, Videos, Imsifolder, nane, Images.

Holy cow I am hoping someone here can help me out for I am pulling my hair out one strand at a time.
 
I have a Sony Vaio All-In-One 3D touch screen computer [VPCL22SFX] that is having an issue and I am unable to figure out what exactly is going on. It does not lack in processing power or RAM which makes this even more difficult. This PC has worked perfectly since I bought it but now it seems there is something wrong and I can't figure it out. About 3 months ago it started slowing down at certain times and I have exhausted everything I know to help diagnose what the issue could be and I am coming up with nada. I only use this PC for accessing MS Office and internet surfing so I keep it very clean. When I go to YouTube the video and audio stutters and brings the PC down to a crawl. I will attempt to move the mouse at the same time and it also stutters or skips all over the place. When I try to copy data over from the PC to an external hard drive [or vice versa] the mouse exhibits the same behavior. I am on a wired connection and I am getting about 40 MBPS downloads and 4 MBPS uploads on AT&T Uverse, and I run speed tests all the time so I know the number is consistent. I have used Hiren's Boot CD to test the CPU, the RAM, the fans, the hard drive, the video card and the audio and it passes all the tests.

Hi!
A few months ago (April 2000), I ENCRYPTED a *.zip-file with the PGP-freeware (hope u heard of it). I wrote down my pass-phrase and de-installed the PGP-software a few weeks later, but let the file (xxx.zip.pgp) encrypted. Now I am in urgent need of this file I encrypted with the PGP software, but I CAN NOT DECRYPT IT with the current PGP software!!!! WHY?!?! I installed PGP-freeware 6.58, which is the latest one, and made EXACTLY the same passphrase like I did, to encrypt the data, but everytime I try to double-click the "xxx.zip.pgp"-file, PGP opens up a little window, telling me that my no pass sentence or something like that could be found! And when I click on the "unknown"-line in this window, the program tries to connect to a server, but everytime I get a "Server-error"! THIS SUCKS!
How do I DECRYPT a file which has been ENCRYPTED a few months ago, when another version of PGP was used?
HELP!

I have a Gateway Laptop that is 5 years old. I rarely use it, but like to be able to use it outside or in bed when I'm bedridden (disabled). For 3 months now I cannot got on line with it. My desktop works fine, which is connected to a wireless Netgear router from BrightHouse (roadrunner). They've been to the house 10 times and successfully get it up and running, but if I shut it down for and hour or more the same thing happens. I can't get on line with a message that I have limmited or no connectivity. It seems to have something to do with loosing my network key and IP address. Since this is from Bright House I assumed they could fix it. I even paid $170 to a tech support team who got it up and running only to loose the connection again a few hours later. There must be a solution for this problem, I just can't find anyone who can fix it. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your time.

Hey Hey - Happy Holidays all!!

Got a machine running XP Home SP1 and it started having strange IE problems, like not displaying backgrounds on some sites [they were mostly php Nuke sites]; then it started crashing all the time when going to Windows Update site. Then started crashing all the time unpredictably and couldn't find a pattern.

No virus [Norton clean], no spyware or adware [Webroot SpySweeper clean]
Tried reinstalling XP but to no avail
Tried to install SP2 in hopes that it would over write problems, BUT it WILL NOT install - - goes for a while and then just stops - - no messages, nothing, just stops install - attempted it 4 times and got a partial install is all; had to uninstall that.

Any ideas? Please!!

Thanks all and have happy, healthy holidays

A:IE impossible to solve? What else can I try?

I don't have XP so I have no first hand knowledge of it. However, you will find links to articles about failed SP2 installs in this list;http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/best_of/xpsp2links.htm

As for your original IE problem, I wonder if you can still try to 'repair' IE like you could in the older OS's?. To do it, you went to Add/Remove, selected IE to uninstall, and then were given the option to repair it.

Assuming that is still possible in XP, I am not saying it will help your problem because I just don't know.

Hey guys,
I've got a really weird issue and and to be honest am running out of ideas. I was infected with the claro malware this past week which was easy enough to clear up and is completely gone. I noticed this past day that Im pulling a wrong network configuration:
Host IP - 69.219.34.456 (not actual) on my laptop
DHCP server -10.246.224.1
Default Gateway - 69.204.80.1
My DNS servers are correct, my usual scope is 192.168.0.x and gateway of 192.168.0.1.
I can access the internet like usual without issue but can't rdp to any LAN pc's (obviously because of the subnet)
I did a netsh int ip reset command without any success and am kind of at a loss of what to do.
The claro maleware may have nothing to do with it but since it has to do with network settings I figured it was definitely a possibility but it is definitely 100% gone, all of my network settings should be reset to default, I definitely do not have any rogue DHCP servers on my network even though with the default gateway being wrong and still having access to the internet I don't see how that could be it anyway. If any one has any ideas I would be extremely grateful.

Thank You
Tyler
