Preferred Solution: Explorer 10 Download Manager not allowing complete download

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am running windows 7 home 64, and every time I download something the download window that shows the progress of the download goes blank once the download is complete. This is very annoying because I have to open up the download folder again in order to open the downloaded file. Any ideas what this could be?

When I'm downloading something to my secondary HDD the internet explorer default download manager is first storing the file on my SSD-disk in the user temp folder, and after the download is finished it copy the content to my secondary hdd and deletes all data in the temp folder.

How can I prevent it doing so? I want to store the file directly where I put the file. I have to download maybe 1TB of data and I don't want my SSD disk to store and delete that amount of data.

Can I disable that feature? I don't wanna move the temp folder to another disk eighter.

Any ideas?

Hi guys, I've searched for this but couldn't find the solution. The problem is that after a few 20 or so. The download on my Windows 7 stops working...Take a look at the picture.

It says connecting and the lights on the modem start blinking as if it is downloading but it doesn't. I can still browse websites but can't download even in Opera, Mozilla or IE. I've been using Spybot and KIS for 4 years now, so I don't think there is a problem of virus or malware. Please help!

Answer:Download stops working in Windows7, Internet Download Manager, Everywhere

Guys, I've updated KIS to 2010 and I think it is the problem as I exited the application and then started the download on IDMan. It started to work. But why KIS is doing this. Is there any settings problem with the firewall?? The problem still continues with KIS turned on.!!!!

Hi all,

I don't know if this is the appropriate section, but I'm having trouble with my MSN Explorer.

Whenever I try to open the "Download Manager" or try to download something (which automatically opens the Manager), the browser crashes. I can download things using either Firefox or IE and I've had this issue before, found a command somewhere online I could run (using "Run") and that solved the problem. However, I can't seem to find that command (which was on another forum somewhere) and was hoping someone here knew what it is.

I've been using IDM (6.25 build 3 most recently) happily for quite some time. For Christmas I purchased an online class which streams (?) from a .com website. I paid $128 for the class which remains online. Although I can view it anytime, I'd like to have it on my hard drive so I can put it on my laptop and watch it in bed instead of sitting at my desktop computer. Also I've purchased classes in the past and the website went out of business and *poof* my purchased classes went with them!!

When I use IDM to download the .flv file and play it back using Windows media player, I only get video.

Can anyone suggest:
-- what's going wrong?
-- a solution
-- another program I can use?

Thanks for the assist!

Answer:Internet Download Manager Plays Only Audio For .flv Download

IDM is currently at 6.25 build 12. IDM only downloads files it doesn't play them. That's the job of your media player. An alternate media player you might try is VLC available at Major Geeks.

I've just upgraded my Windows 8 x64 to Windows 8.1. I've discovered that I cannot open the download manager window anymore using Ctrl-J keyboard shortcut. Web Channels list is opened instead. In Windows 8 before the upgrade that shortcut worked
just fine.
I still can open the window using main IE menu. Hotkey hint written next to the menu item is still Ctrl-J.

Hi Guys,
I recently downloaded bbc iplayer, when I click on it, it - rightly says I have no programmes to watch.

I click through the "download programmes" button which brings me to the iplayer home page - so far so good.

I select (for example) TV, John Bishops Britain, then select download options, for iplayer desktop-"click" and ....drumroll, nothing, nyada, zilch!!

I de installed and reinstalled thinking perhaps there was a corrupt file somewhere, this made no difference.

I then selected download for windows media player and got this message;

Software upgrade required
To download BBC iPlayer programmes please upgrade your version of Windows Media Player. Click here to get the latest version from Microsoft.

So far as I can see for my OS (XP pro) wmp11 IS the latest version available and the one I'm using.

It's really quite frustrating, I have had no luck on the support site or, so far by trawling through the net looking for answers. Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation and best regards,

Answer:BBC Iplayer download manager - wont download!!!

Instead of downloading it through the desktop program download them on line they should go strait to your Iplayer desktop
go to
go to the required show
scroll under the video
click "download options"
then "for iplayer desktop"

A free download manager designed to integrate seamlessly with Windows 7 is now available from Microsoft. Dubbed the Microsoft Download Manager, the utility is designed, as the label implies, to help users administer their downloads beyond the boundaries of the browser. More often than not, downloading very large files can be problematic, especially in the context of an unreliable connection. It is precisely in scenarios like these that a download manager will carry out any download tasks to the end, unlike browsers missing this functionality.

?The Microsoft Download Manager enables you to download files from the Internet in a more reliable and faster way than using a browser alone. Using the Download Manager makes it easier to download large files such as an application or multimedia files,? Microsoft explained.

According to the Redmond company, the Microsoft Download Manager comes to the table with support not only for Windows 7, but also for Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2 and SP3. Microsoft Download Manager was designed to work with Internet Explorer 8, IE7 and IE6 but also with Firefox 3 and Firefox 2.

Hi, I have been having some computer problems lately, mostly with being unable to play a game I had recently purchased. I thought the problem was many things before figuring out that my computer has not updated itself in over a year+

So I go and try to update it from security panel, and it will not do it automatically. I can see the list of available updates, and the service pack 2 and recent others have all failed. I then went to microsoft site and downloaded the service pack 2 manually and when i installed it, instantly said not successfuly installed. I ran a check on my computer and it fixed some files and some were corrupted it said. I have done some research and found that I need a vista dvd or cd to start up and repair this issue ( i think ). Now my computer came with 1 cd when i bought it because vista was preinstalled on my computer, and I have long since lost that cd.

I begin to browse on internet for topics : how to fix vista without your computers startup disc, and got some results. i guess microsoft released a .iso file that you can burn to a disc and use as a recovery tool. I tried this and the cd i have burnt it too does not load when i start up my computer, just goes right to my desktop like vista normally would. Did i burn this cd wrong, or is this not even possible to do? Any help would be appreciated, my computer runs fine and I can browse the internet, but I cannot download any updates or play this one game due to some updates needed to be installed but ...

I have downloaded many times before no problem, is this a false positive.
If it is a false positive how to i download it and stop avast blocking the download.
If it helps, here's what Threatexpert made of it

Answer:Avast is not allowing Adwcleaner download

Yes....false detections by anti-virus programs for specialized fix tools are not uncommon.Certain embedded files that are part of legitimate programs or specialized fix tools, may at times be detected by some anti-virus and anti-malware scanners as suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not the case. This occurs for a variety of reasons to include the tool's compiler, the files it uses, whether files are compressed or packed, what behavior (routines, scripts, etc) it performs, any registry strings it may contain and the type of security engine that was used during the scan. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software.When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malicious or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others or that it was simply detected as suspicious or a threat due to the security program's heuristic analysis engine which provides the ability to det...

Hi all:

From the MS Store.
I bought a FULL VERSION Vista Home Premium DVD actual disc not the downloaded version.
With the right to a FULL VERSION Win 7 when it releases on Oct 22nd.

I am thinking of getting it by downloading it from MS.

My question is really Simple.

How do I burn the iso to disk after Downloading it with the Download Manager to make it Bootable as if I got the actual disk?

A friend of mine said he downloaded his his was Vista without the Download Manager and there were (3)- Separate files and couldn't figure out how to make it a bootable disk so he returned it for the actual media.

NOW if I download my Win 7 Full Version disk to my Drive using the download manager, WILL IT be a single iso file so that I can burn it as a bootable disk?

And if it is suppose to be 3- separate files then how do I go about combining them to make it bootable?

I'd hate to choose the download option and not be able to make use of it, Only to have to pay FULL Price for an actual copy.

When I could just get my Free Copy for the price of Shipping and of coarse tax.

Any advice or Links I'd be most Grateful......

Answer:How do I burn iso after download using download Manager

It should be a single ISO file.

How to burn an ISO image to disc..

Its simple really, download this, save it somewhere.

When its done downloading, go to the location you saved it, and extract the .zip file.

After that, open the folder it created and run 'IsoBurner'

Click on this;
Attachment 29934

Then locate the .iso file and select it.

Then burn it, you should also set the speed to the lowest possible to ensure their are no problems burning.

Sorry if its not that clear, I'm half awake about to go to sleep.

I then either completely reset the IE settings or enable file download (which is set to enable by default).

I am trying to reinstall Software onto an old computer (all the one I can afford) which uses Windows 95. To this end. I need a complete copy of Internet Explorer 5.5, including Outlook Express. Microsoft will allow me to download updates to IE 5.5. Microsoft product cycle says they will no longer allow me to download the entire IE 5.5. Although I can try to start the process, which errors off with a message about perhaps my Internet Connection is down, or my Modem is too slow, or the Microsoft site is too busy. My modem is 33.6 kbps, and is slow. I am still online. Microsoft clearly states they will not allow a complete IE 5.5 download, since last year. I suspect the problem is that Microsoft has disabled it from their end, without a clear error message. I will try to download again after midnight here. I hope some one of you out there knows of some one who has put the entire download out out on the web, somewhere. Or Outlook Express 5.5. I have a rudimentary version of IE 5.5 from an old AOL CD. I need Outlook Express as well as other things. I did manage to download a Windows critical update without any problems from the Microsoft site. So i do not think my slow modem is the problem. Thanks for reading this.

Win XP Pro, SP2, Tiscali BB uncapped.Can anyone throw some light on this, its beyond me. Oh! I have downloaded other programmes OK.

This issue just started yesterday. I was downloading Zipped files from a very trustworthy source and later that night I tried to download a larger one. About 10 minutes into the download it says "Download Complete", though it was strange because the download was at 20% So I go in the Zipped file and try to access it and I get an error message, saying the file was corrupt or damaged or something of the sort. Anyway I've had this problem in the past and was wondering if it was anything serious and how to remedy it.

P.S. This happens on both my browsers (I.E. and FireFox)

I am trying to figure out why I keep getting a Microsoft Internet pop up message stating "Click YES to complete your download". It is very irritating and I don't know how to make this go away.

When i try to download files that are greater than 10mb my download bar goes fine for a few minutes and then a message pops up saying "source file could not be read" please do help me with this

Answer:download doesnt complete in my sys

Are you driving to a stable location in which you have all writing and reading permissions? In your place, I would check this:-If you download by "opening" the file, the file downloads into your temporary folder. I don't know if you have software that automatically clear your temp files or anything. But before anything try downloading it to a specific location you've known to handle big files.-If you are downloading your files to a specific location, check that this drive is properly connected and fully functionnal. What your describing here sounds like a case where the drive in which you download randomly shuts off for a fraction of second, thus breaking the chain. If you're using a USB drive make sure the connection as well as your USB ports are working properly, switch between ports. A faulty USB cable could also be at cause here.-Make sure that whatever the download location is, that is has enough free space, and that it is not constantly solicitated by background processes.-

There's a little box that's started popping up in the lower right hand corner of my screen that says "Software download complete. Install now / Install later.

Well, I'm not going to install anything just because it tells me the download is complete, but doesn't tell me what it is. I can get rid of the box by selecting Install Later, but then it just pops up again. I rebooted the computer, figuring if it was something that was supposed to install, that would do it. Maybe dumb, now that I think of it. Anyway, nothing happened. I still get the popup. Is this familiar to anyone? Any suggestions to make it go away?

I would like to know if I'm the only one like this or it's normal under IE 6. Here is the problem:

Usually, when I downloaded a program on the net (under IE 5.5), the message at the end of the successful download asked me if I wanted to open the program. There was also a clear sound accompanying this message.
My problem is that I don't have this sound with IE 6.
Is there still one for you guys or it's only me?

Please follow the instructions in the below link and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools on another PC and burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC.

Just recently, I've found that whenever I try to download any file to my computer or if I try to install a program, the message always comes up as "Internet Explorer cannot download (insert file name here) from (insert website here). Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." I've waited hours and tried again, but this message keeps showing up. Now, I find it hard to believe that all of the sites I've gone to have been "unavailble" or "cannot be found". My internet is working fine. All sites come up perfectly. But when download, my computer just doens't seem to want to give in.

Because of this problem, I cannot download things like Adobe Flash Player, or simplilar things like an mp3 file of my children singing. Also, on sites like and MySpace, my kids have found they are unable to listen to music. Is there something I need to take off my computer or something I need to install to fix this problem?

There is no such thing as a "Service Pack" for Win98; that only applies to NT based operating systems.

If your Win98 PC is not hooked up to the internet, you're pretty much SOL - M$ has stopped supporting Win98 as of last year and the only way to get your updates for it are via the internet.

Changes made on my pc within the last few days around the time problem with downloading started:

*Uninstalled NIS 2005

*Replaced Norton with Avast, ZoneAlarm, and OnlineSafetyShield (Trial)

*Installed Trial of TuneUp Utilities 2006 (used this to fix a problem with digital camera software)

*Disabled OSS, still installed but disabled, had a few glitches with it.


My Downloads are stalling. They are getting to almost complete then just going nowhere. The animation is still going, but all the numbers stop. I have a DSL, not the best speed connection, but before this downloads were max 3 to 4 minutes for a 15mb file. Used to get about 30 to 40 kb/sec. I know that's still slow for most people but I've never had this problem before the changes above. My DSL is through our local telephone company.

Most recent attempt to download something was CyberPatrol 7.6 Trial and it got to 76% complete the first try and 63% the second. Third try today it got to 99% with 17 seconds to go and just .7mb left.

After the download stalls I notice there is no traffic from ZoneAlarm, it's like it loses connection somehow, (but I'm still connected to the internet)

After waiting forever, I finally click cancel, then click download again, choose save to desktop and the download seems to pick right back up where it left off, starting right where it was when it stalled, after it completes, I go to the the desktop try to install and an error message comes up:

Ok this is driving me nuts. My new W520 came pre-installed with Win7 (as you know). So I installed VirtualBox so I could do my development at work. I failed to install Fedora in VB so I wiped the disk and installed Fedora 16 natively. That worked, but F16 refused to recognise my external VGA port so I couldn't connect it to a monitor. So the laptop was pretty useless to me. I wiped Linux and installed Windows 7 from a work DVD and the installation worked but there is no support for ethernet, wireless or USB. So I can't do anything with the laptop. I'm downloading individual drivers on my Macbook and I'm going to burn them to a CD. Is there anyway to download the complete Lenovo package? This is all rather painful and I'm this close (pinches fingers together) to returning the laptop and getting a MacBook Pro.

You need two things:1. Wireless or ethernet driver installed.2. ThinkVantage System Update Then just run the ThinkVantage System Update to select what you want or don't want to install.

Brand new machine (homebrew AMD FX6300, GA990FXA-UD3, 8gb ram, 120gb ssd, 1tb hd, ati radeon 5450) running Win7 Pro x64.  Regardless of which browser I use (Firefox, IE, Chrome), I'm having files not download completely, or at all.
Example:  As a test, I've tried to download XP SP3.  I know it's 316mb in size.  I get to MAYBE 30 mb (if I'm lucky), and the file stops download.  All three browsers think the file is done and quits transferring.  More often than not, I get MAYBE 3mb downloaded and it stops.  I've attempted to download other files of various sizes from various sources and the same thing happens.  No difference between starting the system normally or in a clean boot environment.
So far, I've tried both the on-board NIC and an external USB WiFi dongle, same results.  Win7 updates are up to date, drivers for both on-board NIC and WiFi dongle are up to date, BIOS has been updated, etc.

Answer:Get Window 10 App Download Complete but Windows 10 not installing

By running setup.exe in the $Windows.~BT folder, you have damaged the download. You need to delete this folder, and allow it to download again. Microsoft is rolling out Windows 10 in staged releases to subsets of people who reserved copies, so you might not get "triggered" right away.

You can always use the Media Creation Tool to upgrade manually.

Hi, I am trying to clean install XP Pro. On my m70-193 (done), but I was stuck in some of the drivers required to complete the installation. I downloaded all the drivers in toshiba for my machine(65 driver) but I can't fined the rest of them (almost 25 driver) would you please advice ?

Thank you in advance


Answer:Satellite M70-193: How to complete the drivers download list?

Can you please tell us the status of device manager? Are there some uninstalled hardware components. On Toshiba download page you will find many quick fixes. Are you talking about them when you have mentioned 25 missing drivers or what?

Install SP2 and check Microsoft update option online. Everything missing will be downloaded and installed automatically. It is important to install all drivers properly.

I recently had a boot sector failure on my hard drive. I inserted a reformated on hand 320 GB drive. I then reinstalled Windows 7 Professional SP1 and proceded to rebuild my files and programs from back up files. Where I did not have a copy of a file to reinstall, getting that file from the Internet has been a NIGHTMARE! Some files download the first time. But most files seem to hang when 95-98% of the download is complete. After a while the download will signal complete but installation fails due to file corruption. Multiple retries using different browsers and multiple DL locations yield the same results. Rarely a DL stub will succeed where a full file DL failed. The problem is browser independent occuring with Firefox 31.0, Google Chrome, and IE 11. I do not know if this is related or not but Adobe Flash also crashes every time it is called. Viewing a complete video is impossible. Any ideas as to cause and fix?

Answer:Unable to complete file download using IE 11, Firefox 31.0 or Chrome

I am in the process of paring down the size of my emails, consolidating tham, and archiving the old ones. I am using eM Client software to do this and will likely switch to using they software "permanently' for now.

Over the years, I made some Outlook 2007 archives (numbered 001, 002, 003, etc). At some point I attempted to access some of these emails and was greeted with a message indicating that I was only viewing the header.

Is there a way to trick Outlook 2007 into reaching out to one or two email accounts (one Gmail, one Yahoo) and getting the rest of the email? Can I tell OL to get the rest of the mail a)for archived files, and b) for current ones?

I have recently set OL to IMAP. It used to have both POP and IMAP enabled. At one point, I loaded 50,000 duplicates, then found an Outlook Duplicate File Finder ("ODIR") extension/plugin that took care of the duplicate problem.

So, can anyone tell me how to get OL to get the rest of the mail?



Answer:Make Outlook 2007 download complete mail

never mind - moving to another email client (eM C)

As my updates to Win 10 Ver 1703 failed a number of times for various reasons I thought it best to turn back the clock with a Macrium backup, and then watch the update process more carefully as it proceeded. Last night I got to the Windows Update settings page, which showed several to be downloaded, one of which is the Cumulative Update for Ver 1607. which failed for error 0x800700002, and Feature Update for error 0xc1900107, which I have seen before. And it also says "We can't install others as other updates are in progress..." and suggest a restart. I've been through this drill before with no total completion of updates. Feel like I am going in a circle. My desktop did the 1703 update without a hitch or bobble so I am not rushed to get the laptop 'fixed'. I would be happy to format the HD and install my original Win 10 from my ISO and proceed from there as long as I had some assurance that that would work. Your suggestions and direction will be most welcome. The simplest way to fix the thing would be the best. My thanks in advance. PS: I just restarted and got back to the Update page and it says the Cumulative update is available and it is attempting to download it. Sorry for the length, but the story is long.
