    Hi guys!!!
    My question is: Why isn't my internet downloading anything?
    I use windows 7 and whenever I try to download anything at the moment it always comes up with this message:

    System.componentModel.Win32Exception: The system can not find the
    file specified
    at
    System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithShellExecuteEx(ProcessStartInfo
    startInfo)
    at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start()
    at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)
    at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(String fileName, String
    arguments)
    at MyDownloader.IEPlugin.IEMD.DownloadURL(String url) :confused:

    Thankyou. By the way, obviously with different downloads some little details are different, but if you could help then that would be great,
    Thanks,
    Minecraft123 :) (y)

    Please use the TSG System Info tool to let Tech's know the specs of your computer: http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe Copy and paste the results here in your thread.
    Also, if its a brand name system like an Acer,Dell or HP, please post the exact model of the system.

    If you can't get this to work, please try and tell us as much as you can about your system.

    If you are using a third-party downloader, the plugin has been damaged. Reinstall the downloader with the browser closed and make sure that its plugin is not disabled in the Manage Add-ons section.

    Open Elevated Command Prompt Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.Now type or copy and paste the commands below one at a time hitting enter after each.

    ipconfig /flushdns

    netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    nbtstat -R

    nbtstat -RR

    netsh int reset all

    netsh int ip reset

    netsh winsock reset

    Now reboot your machine.
