    My computer(XP Professional) has a downloading problem. Small files are okay but the bigger ones(anything thats <50mb, changes time to time) always never completes. Each time i try, it ends with a different file size. I've tried to troubleshoot by using different browsers, sites and computers, in the end, i concluded it was my computer. I have a 3mbps unlimited broadband plan. What could be the problem? If it was my connection i did call the ISP straight...

    So anyone encoutered such problems before? Mine has been around for abt 2 wks..

    Well, you might have changed nothing, but security applications update all the time. It's easy to check - disable Notron Internet Security from starting with windows (in the programs settings), restart the PC, make sure Norton is not on and try and download something.:)

    Alternatively, you could start your PC in "safe mode with networking" and try it there.

    How did you determine it's not your connection? Are you connected via router?

    Reset any modems/routers and try again.:)
