Default download problems.....?

Hey i'm new to this site. Nice to meet everyone. I have my very first question right now....whoo hoo.... i guess. Anyways, i have a little download problem. Everytime my downloads start, they start really good, but end up only downloading part of the file. The download completes, but is always corrupted. I just hope it is something that can easily be fixable...lol... (is anything easy to fix anymore?) I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what it might be. At this point i hope it's just something simple as a virus...but i expect the worst. Any help would be gladly appreciated. Thank you.

Well, for starters, are you using dial up or cable...It could be many things such as, spyware, or viruses...Have you ran a scan for any? If thats not it, it could be a problem in the wire, which is bad, because then that means the whole cable underground, or in your house is bad, and need to be re-done...As I recall, someone had this same exact problem, dont think we solved it for them lol..Try calling your isp, and ask them to run like a check on the line..

do you use a download accelarator of some sort, or a download manager?

Hmm... my downloads do that occasionaly, but usually its just a problem with my dialup not keeping a good connection to the ISP... what is your ISP? Are they reliable?

How about loading a flash movie or something on a webpage? Do they ever stop?

Recon-16, you just reminded me of something. If you use "Free Download Manager", which is just a little download manager that can resume and pause files, you could resume the file after it stops... have you ever tried that?

In case you were wondering, here is a link:

http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/

I know you don't have dialup, but that is what I use when my dialup cuts off.

i'll try that. Im wondering if it's maybe just spyware that norton didnt catch. My isp is direcway. The cables are fine, I can download if i use a program that allows me to download from webpages. I just can't download through the internet
