I was downloading a very large file overnight and burning a cd at the same time. Something happened and the computer locked up from burning the cd. When I checked the file I was downloading it said 0 bytes under the properties. I know that I had downloaded a majority of it, so is there a way to recover it? Thanks.

Welcome to TSG!
Unfortunatly even if your download was found in the temp file area it will be incomplete and probably useless. You may have to reinitiate another download and let your computer alone to do its work. By doing several major operations at once you ran out of resources and caused a lock-up. I am surprised the burner did not time out due to a buffer underrun while the download was occuring.
