Maybe your ISP capped your downloads. Or you have a virus. Just do the standards.. Virus scan, spyware scan ect..

ISP wont really cap downloads. But, what could happen is that there could bean unstable connection, in which, corrupts some files.

If using dialup you may be getting noise on the line. That could throw the CRC off for the file. Check all of you connections.

in the uk you can do a quiet line test by dialing 17070. you should listen for 1 minute to the line, you should hear nothing at all.
any crackling popping or whistleing will cause you problems while on line, and would need reporting.

Well if your getting corrupted and error messages while downnloading stuff, try using a download manager. Here's an excellent free one... Free Download manager.

http://www.download.com/Free-Downloa...ml?tag=lst-0-1

To get it to work in Firefox, go to extensions and click on flashgot. After you get flash got you can use FMD with firefox.
