All downloaded files show as 0 bytes
Hi guys, Im going to try and explain this as best I can!

I have a Packard Bell laptop that for some reason does not allow me to download anything. When I say that, I can actually download the file, whatever it may be.

For example, if I try and download a 10mb file, I can see the progress bar for that file work its way to 100%, but then when I hover the icon over the downloaded file, it shows as 0 bytes, and if i try and execute the file, I get the following message

"xxxxx is not a valid win32 application"

I have tried downloading video files, music files, as well as executable files but this always happens.

Can someone help?
