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, 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,

You cannot open a dll as it is not an executable file it is a compiled file that is a part of the program.

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.

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:

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 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?

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.

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.

Okay, i am not sure what causes this, not even really sure what forum it belongs in, but here is my problem.

When downloading things, whether in IE or Mozilla Firefox, the download seems to think its done about halfway into it, if not less. Anything I download does this, it starts, and finishes...and me, thinking its done, open it. It of course doesnt work and i look at the file size and its way smaller than what its intended to be.

My question is, what causes this, and if you know that...how do i fix 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!

Hi,

I want to install a POI loader for my GPS on my computer. When I try to select a folder where data files can be found, a message reads "There are no data files in that folder. Please specify a folder that contains at least 1 file with a (.csv) or (.gpx) extension." This is my first time ever downloading any GPS software, so I don't believe I would have any files with those extensions. What should I do?

Thanks

I relocated your thread to it's own thread; you were piggybacked onto an existing thread and nobody would have seen it there.

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. What's the problem? I'm almost sure its not a virus, it's some high security thing but i dont know what, i got nvidia Forceware but i turned it off... even the windows firewall with SP2. Can anyone help me? It's really annoying, thanks!

While I was downloading Windows 8.1, I accidentally shut my laptop off (which it clearly states not to do during the download) and now I cant download 8.1

It used to give me an error code but now it just says "cannot download windows 8.1" or "your windows 8.1 download could not be completed" in the windows store.

I'm not a techy so English words would be much appreciated.

pls halp.
