Unhappy problem with downloading window

when I download something the download window opens but next to the the ESTIMATED TIME LEFT it says Not Known (u know which window i mean?). This has just started a week ago since I restored my computer back to factory settings, does anyone know how I can make it show me the estimated time left?

Starnge...I get that sometime, but only with a FEW files, and the download normally finishes within a minute......Is this problem just with 1 downloads, or ALL your downloads....?

Yeah, definately try out Firefox.

Microsoft minute = either 20 seconds, or 3 - 5 minutes.

No IE is faster, but its worst. I can take the miliseconds of slower load times for Firefox, the king of browsing.
