click Download. No indication of download in progress

Q: click Download. No indication of download in progress

Twice now, I have clicked on the download button in the App Store (used a link obtained from the Verge article). My screen just jumps to the main App Store screen, and I see no indication that anything is downloading or in progress.

How can I verify that a download is in progress?Do I have 2 downloads going now that I did this twice?

Honestly, I miss the old days before the App store ... download an ISO & read Brink's installation tutorial -- that was it.

Thank you.

Originally had Win 7 Home Premium.
Used the Win 8 Upgrade Assistant to upgrade to Win 8. (I have a Win8 key.)
Installed the 8.1 Preview (don't remember how right now).

Preferred Solution: click Download. No indication of download in progress

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.)

Hello TBolt,

Hi Guys, Windows 7 security updates does not download, if showing N number of updates, it won't
download and the downloading shows life forever.\<o:p></o:p>
This problem has found in Windows 7 Ent and Windows
7 Ent SP1 in clean formatted PC with windows Activated and Domain not joined. Tried on several PCs and either it won't ever start or it will be showing 112 or 114 updates but it won?t ever download. Domain joined PCs have different
story, because GP options are enforced. There is no WSUS or patch management software yet on network. <o:p></o:p>
I am purely looking for an answer for this problem of Windows Update either not initiating at all if ever it is showing number of updates to be installed,
it never them downloaded and downloading screen with 0% activity is running forever. Please share any experiences and solutions. If there is a KB about it please refer. <o:p></o:p>

After updating to Firefox 20, I noticed that Mozilla did away with the pop-up window that showed the progress of downloads. How can I get that back?

FYI, I would normally ask this question in Mozilla's forum, but they make it impossible to log into the forum if your username ceases to work. They provide a "forgot your password" link, but no "forgot your username" link, and you MUST know the username for them to e-mail you a new password. And I can find no general "contact us" anywhere. So, as I say, if your username stops working (mine used to work and was captured by my password manager, LastPass), there is no way to find out what it was or get a new one. Also can't re-register because it tells me "that e-mail address is already in use." Mozilla has the worst "help" in the industry, and this is just one example.

A:Solved: Download progress bar in Firefox

I have an odd situation on network copying from my Vista X64 Ultimate PC to a Windows XP Pro PC.

I suspect it is something I have altered in the settings/registry whilst I was trying to overcome network copy problems. I am using Directory Opus 9.1 as my file explorer but I don't think this is the problem.

When I copy a large file (say 1.0GB) then the copy progress bar quickly goes to 100% and then remains at 100% for a period of time before completing. If I look in the Performance tab of the Task Manager I can see memory use quickly increase by 1.0GB and then slowly start to reduce. The peak is achieved at about the same same as the 100% is shown and the progress bar remains stuck at 100% whilst the memory reduces (presumably as the file is copied over the network). I suspect I must have set a cache figure at 1.0GB because if I copy a larger file then the memory increases and then flat lines for a period and then start reducing. In this case the progress bar will speed up to say 60% and then track slowly to 100% and then get stuck whilst the memory reduces.

I am up-to-date will all MS Updates.

I would be grateful as to any pointers as to what setting I can change to get the behaviour back to normal.

A:Network file copy progress indication problem

This happens using plain-ol'-Explorer too, right?

What about if you boot the Vista box to "Safe Mode + net" and try the copy from there? Same symptom?

I am so lost at this and need to know this if anyone can help out? I have looked in all the usual places and couldn't find where IE8 first cache a download in progress file to. I know it caches it to C: somewhere first and then after the download is complete it copies it over to your chosen location . A very stupid thing if you ask me.... Unlike chrome which would save that temporary in progress downloading immediately to your chosen dir.

Anyway, getting back to the point, I just waste a few hours trying to get a file only to have my internet cut out at 99% download for a 2GB file. If i know the location of this temp file ( I understand that it might be named uufi.wuu or whatever weird name) but at least i could have copy this over to do a resume from another source. I know that it saved it to c: somewhere because when the timeout finally occurred it removed that temp file and free up the space on c:

Much appreciate any help. thanks

A:Where does IE8 first temporarily save download in progress file to?


Sorry, I don't know the specific answer, but it's probably a temp folder, such as the one mentioned HERE? (That may be for XP. But with Uncle Google to help, you can probably find a similar link for Win7.)

What sort of gigantic, 2 GB file was this?

Having said that:
If the internet cut out during the download, the partial file you have will probably be incomplete and/or corrupt and probably useless.You probably ought to start again or find another way to get the file.

Most importantly: IE8 has not been supported for a VERY, VERY long time -- since January 2016, the only supported version for IE under Win7 has been IE11For a host of very real security reasons, immediate upgrade to IE11 is strongly recommended.This can be done via Windows Update or with the offline installer

If you are missing any of the other, critical and important security patches for your system, it would be a good idea to install those, as well

I just posted this here because I don't know where else to put this.

I was downloading from filesonic when I noticed that the waiting time was moving abnormally slow - a 15-minute waiting time took more than that (45 minutes or so?) - but it sped up, or moved normally, when I moved the mouse cursor (working on a touch pad). I refreshed the page and went to the link several times but it didn't do anything. At times the waiting time countdown would restart after the previous countdown finished. Then I finally got a dialogue box saying System Error, so I decided to come back tomorrow.

I have a habit of scanning files I download, and they showed no virus (Emsisoft and Avira, both the free versions, on the folder the files were in showed nothing). But when I uploaded one o the files to virustotal, the progress circle (?) wasn't moving - literally, frozen - unless I moved the mouse cursor. The percentage count that appears at the bottom didn't even appear until I moved the cursor. And when it got to the page listing the results, the striped progress bar under the status (queued in red, analyzing in green, etc) didn't move unless I moved the mouse cursor.

I ran a Hitman Pro scan on the computer and came up with nothing. Doing an Emsisoft scan now. The progress bars of these program updates (Avira and Emsisoft anyway) are working fine, from what I saw of them (but then again I was using the mouse cursor). The scan progress bars are working fine.

A:download waiting time, upload progress not loading unless I move mouse cursor

Tried scanning with Emsisoft and Malwarebytes, but weird things happened. The Emsisoft scan finished quickly - far faster than the time it usually took - with no infections found. I updated Malwarebytes first, but somehow the program ended up re-installing (?): there was a message saying I should update the program, but I found myself with the same dialogue boxes as an installation. Went through with it anyway. Scanning with Emsisoft again, just in case.

I recently did a scan on my system with Super Anti Spyware and foolishly agreed to remove all items it recommended.

Unfortunately it removed a poker client of which I am extremley fond.

I am now unable to redownload the site, I click on the run option when the download box appears and nothing happens.

I have also tried another site to see if the problem was just isolate to this site and it is not, I seem to now be having this problem with all downloads.

I have tried doing it with the Spyware protection turned off and had the same result, also tried turning off my firewall and still no joy.

My pc runs on Windows Vista, has Mcafee and Super Anti Spyware as the security.

If anybody can help it would be much appreciated as I have money tied up in this poker client and need the software back in order to reclaim it.

I just installed Firefox 3 on my vista laptop and when I left click on something I want to download nothing happens. I can right click and save as the link but I can't just left click it. My left click works. How do I fix this?

A:left click download

As in the left click doesn't open the context menu? Is this on every website or just one in particular? (If it's just one, go to options->Content and click the button next to enable javascript, then uncheck the "Disable context menus" checkbox).

If you can't work it out, can you try opening ff in safe-mode?
([WinKey]+R, type "[Path to FF/]firefox.exe -safe-mode", press Enter)

If you can right click in safe mode then it's likely to be a rogue/uncompatible(bumped?) add-on.

My internet explorer also seems to be off also because none of the tabs have writing in them..
My right click doesn't work at all in internet explorer..
The "tools button and information bar" do not apear to be there..

When I start up the computer a box says.. MSIWmiAcpi dll isn't running..
I have tryed to nagaivate through safe mode and I get the same results (as far as any downloads of anti virus software that I tryed)

late last night I ran MRT.EXE through the run box and after waiting an hour and 45 mins, it acted like it found 5 things wrong and that it was going to clean them up after the computer restarted but the computer would never shut off.. at that point I forced the shut down and when it reloaded the problems still existed..

I have noticed in recent weeks that my computer has developed a trend towards slower web page downloading. It used to only be milliseconds or a couple seconds at most (majority of times) to make a change. Now it can take up to several seconds (over ten seconds sometimes) to complete my page changes. You should know that I use a Firefox browser.

What I have learned that I can do to speed up the process is to either manually close down the selection and re-enter it, or just click on the link a second time in some cases, and the page usually comes up immediately. Interestingly this second attempt works whether I do it almost immediately, or wait a few or several seconds, so it gives the impression that somehow it is releasing whatever it is that's blocking or slowing the download.

If anyone recognizes this behavior or has an idea what may be causing the inordinate increase in page change delay, or perhaps even more significantly why the second click is so effective, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Note: I regularly clean my browser cache and registry with CCleaner.....more than once a day, depending on how much activity, especially pictorial or video, that I'm engaged in.

I'm pretty sure this is a problem with my router. I can't download most files (It sends me to a download page and says that the page doesn't exist and it does), watch most youtube videos (They show up as black boxes and I cant do anything with them), click on some buttons (They just don't do anything), and also tabs (they don't open). We recently redid our entire internet setup and reset our router(s). This happens on all of my computers, yet my friends can download the files at their houses (proof that the pages and files exist) etc.

I want to upgrade my Acer Aspire Notebook from Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit to Windows 7 SP1 32-bit.  It qualifies for the "Supported Upgrade Scenerios" and my system passed the Windows 7 install compatibility test.  I found
the Windows 7 download page, but when I enter the Microsoft Product Key on the back of my Acer Aspire Notebook it doesn't accept it.
How do I resolve this problem?  I can't get Chat to work (loops me back to automated system) and I can't find a email or phone number for Microsoft to assist me.
Please help.  Thank you.
TO CLARIFY: Entering the product key on the microsoft windows 7 download page in order to do the download is where the key fails, not during installation.  I can't even get past the download approval.

I'm really hoping someone can help me resolve this very irritating issue. When I'm on a website using the google browser and single tap on my touchpad to go to a link from an image link, my computer automatically downloads the link instead of taking me to said link. I have deleted countless .htm files from my downloaded folder and sometimes have to click the links two or three times for it to actually work.

For some reason programs and files are taking a very long time to download (about 30 kbps), but youtube plays fine, I can go to any website and troubleshooting shows nothing wrong. I went to speedtest.net and I'm averaging about 12 mbps so files should be downloading fast.

At this point I'm stumped. This PC has a fresh install of Windows 7, up-to-date. It is a Dell OptiPlex 780.

I should have also mentioned that the Network drivers are also up-to-date.

I know the file sharing sites like rapidshare, megaupload, hotfile etc. offer resume capability only to their premium/paid users. I know some leeching sites which helped me in past to have those facilities for free but for a couple of days, they aren't working anymore

Is there any other way (a download manager perhaps) which will allow me to resume my broken downloads from these sites? As far as I know leeching is completely legal & there may be some other ways to enjoy certain features without paying any bucks.

Please help
