    Everytime I need to download a file from my e-mail or even programms from the internet I always get the box that ask me to run, save or cancel, I press on Run it dowloads no problems and then another box appears that says it is searching and it just keeps on searching and never fully downloads my programms or files. i have Windows Xp and my browser is intenet explorer, if that is of importance.

    What happens if you use the 'Save' option instead of 'Run' ?

    Welcome to TSG....

    Some system specs on the computer would be a good place to start and include the make, model and operating system service packs please?
