  1. Ok, got a very strange download problem and it only seems to effect programme downloads

    Download - save1.jpg Download - save2.jpg Download - save3.jpg Download - save4.jpg

    From left to right, shows the sequence of the 'download'. In the 2nd screenshot it says 'Download cancelled' (it wasn't) but can right-click and select 'run'! 3rd screenshot, shows it downloading as would be normally expected. In the final screenshot, it shows as if nothing ever downloaded!!!

    I have run various malware programmes and an anti-virus programme - nothing is flagged up! Also, I can download movies, music etc. with no problems!

    Any ideas?

    I'm running XP Pro, with SP3 (fully updated) and my browser is Firefox 3.6.8
  2. Where are you downloading from? Could be the site that's the issue if all other downloads are working.
  3. msr

    msr LE

    Try disabling the download manager addon and see if that makes a difference.

  4. Might be worth temporarily trying a different browser? As it's XP you'll have a IE buried in there somewhere.
  5. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try them out and hopefuly I'll get it cracked!

    Fubes, two of the sites are Skype and Lavasoft (ad-aware).
  6. its all that german porn you've downloaded Recce...........
