    Im getting a weird message evrytime i try to download something. After the screen where I select which folder I want to put the file I get that box telling me that i need to go online to find the apropriate program. The file extension is also something ive never seen before. It says msn23.downloadhost. The number also changes everytime i try to get something new.

    Might be a java problem. Do you have java enabled on your browser? Try windows update to see if you need virtual machine updated.

    Yes I am using msn premium from verizon. I Just did a reinstall of XP. I tried windows update but didnt see anything about Virtual machine. Im not sure if or how to use Java on my browser. Also sometimes the pistures wont load on the webpages. I get those little boxes with the x through them. Does that relate at all??Thanks

    You entitled your post "Download Manager". Do you use a download manager, like DAP, DownloadExpert, Mass Downloader, or any other?

    No its just the Manager in MSN8 and Premium. I havnt added anything. I click on the page where it asks where i want to put it and it says that it has to go online to find the program to open it... It usually says msn.downloadhost...or something about "torrent"

    Do you have any Registry Cleaners or something?

    Did you perform a scan on the computer before the error appears again?
