Hey, I have an annoying thing happening to me. Whenever I try to download a file off the internet (not the illegal kind, but where you download it off a website and right-click "Save Target As..."), it'll download a little bit of the file, and then stop. The piece of paper flying from the little globe into the folder still goes, but the download doesn't get anywhere. GRRR! Can someone help me out with this? Thanks! BTW, I have Windows XP Home Edition.

What happens after it stops? Have you waited to see if it actually downloads after a time and the percentage downloaded is just not being renewed? All file types or just one?

For a start, empty all your temporary internet files.

After it stops, it'll just sit there for hours and hours with the image of the paper flying still going. It doesn't really do anything after it stops. The window stays open and everything. It's just kind of like it gets stuck. And yeah, I actually left it on all night to see if maybe it would finish, but it didn't do anything. Hopefully my explanation made sense... :rolleyes: Thanks.

Empty your temporary internet files.

Then, reset your connection parameters (repair TCP/IP) by going to Start > Run, and typing: cmd
OK.

At the command prompt, type:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
<Enter>

Reboot.

The changes made by resetting TCP/IP will be in the resetlog.txt file in your root directory.

I did everything you said, and at first it seemed to work, but only for small downloads. But it stopped, and just to be sure it wasn't going to finish, I didn't close the window, but they just timed out.
