    I am running windows XP on my home pc. I am a big fan of desperate housewives and missed this weeks episode. When I went to ABC.com to download all was fine until I got to about 90% completion on the download and then my computer froze. Eventually I got the error message saying the website was not responding when I tried to close the program. I have downloaded episodes before with no problem. I also called my sister to ask her to see if she had the same problem and maybe it was just the website. She ws able to access it immediately, which makes me believe the problem is my computer. Obviously I am not a computer guru by any means and any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Any suggestions?
