For some reason I can't download files online. Every time I try I receive an error message reading could not download, server resetting. This has never occurred before and it seems to persist to do this on zips especially. I tried scandisk /restore in hopes that it would help but with no success. Any hints on a way I could resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

My advice is go to housecalls & run the free online virus scanner.
Click here to do so!

for a free virus scanner you can add to your system..if you need one ... go get AVG. Click here to download AVG

and to protect yourself from hackers etc... Get Zone Alarm
Click here the free version is fine


then there is spyware ... go get Ad-Aware
Click here to download it


this should keep you in pretty good shape

Savvy :)

Try emptying your C:\Windows\Temp folder entirely, and clear your Temporary Internet Files in Tools/Internet Options/General tab.

Also, in the Temporary Internet Files area, click Settings.
How much disk space do you have reserved for your TIF's?
It shouldn't be too little.
Set it at about 35 MB.

Good luck,

Hopefully you resolved the problem with the resource that has been given to you by response above me.

But if you are using a default download manager or others.
I would recommend downloadaccelerator.
You can reach it at:

www.downloadaccelerator.com

I have fhoudn the software to be very useful, and reliable.

(P.S.) - to check if your computer is optimze and secure, I would also try:

www.pcpitstop.com

Run a 'free' tuneup on your computer, and go ahead and log on so you can come back and see your report.

Have a safe and joyfull holiday!
