    i tried downloading vids in the internet, like breakdancing vidz. It kept saying that the site is not operating and can't be found. I called my friend and asked him if he can download the same vidz from the same site and it works perfectly in his computer. i installed a trial version of adobe photoshop 6 so i can learn how to make avatars to put in forum sites like shoryuken.com. I already uninstalled adobe photoshop 6 from my computer cause i suspected that it was the thing that was causing the problem. But it wasn't the one that was causing problem, and now i don't know what to do. i really want to download these vids in dragonkhan.com but same problem, it wouldn't let me save the vids. Can u guyz help me?
    thnx.

    It sounds as if the server you're trying to connect to is flooded or Internet traffic in your area is too heavy. You can call your ISP's tecgnical support to make sure all your settings are correct, plus update your antivirus and scan with your AV set to scan All files.

    Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the demo) Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.

    Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly. Create your anti-virus' Rescue disk(s) and update after each Windows anti-virus update.

    You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.antivirus.com

    Similar problems have come up here many times, and in a number of cases the following will solve it:

    Go to start/run, and type 'Regedit'
    Navigate to the following subkey:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extension

    Highlight 'Extension', and choose 'delete'.

    Please don't confuse with the 'ExtensionS' key further down.

    Close Regedit, and reboot.

    Good luck,

    And see the attached image if you have any doubts which key to delete from the registry.

    Let us know what happens.
