SP3 downloads, then stops

Question: SP3 downloads, then stops

I downloaded SP3 from Windows Update but it never says its done. Once the progress bar finishes, it just sits there. Am I being inpatient? Usually, the download finishes, then it's validated, then the install starts. It stopped after the download finished with no other status messages.

Preferred Solution: SP3 downloads, then stops

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: SP3 downloads, then stops

I've just started experiencing a problem with downloads lately. This has been covered in other posts but no answer.

The problem started yesterday with my downloads. I try to download something from www.nationalcountdownshow.com (One of their radio shows) and the download stopped at approximately 10meg of the 136meg file. Thought it was their site so I went to another site (4shared.com to download a large file there) and the same thing happened this time it stopped at 20meg of 150 meg file. Thought then that it was my browser. Tried IE, FIREFOX and Chrome at both sites with no avail. Tried a download manager (DownThemAll!) and the problem persists.

Thought then that maybe a virus got in. Cleaned the drive first with CCLeaner then did a scan with SUPERAnitspyware and Malwarebyts Anit-Malware. Still no resolve.

Tried rebooting the computer and still same problem persists. Small files work fine but large files just stop and do nothing.

I'm currently using Windows XP with all latest updates. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Well, Im addicted to Azureus and fan subbed anime. So, Im always downloading and uploading a lot.

My problem is that after a while ( a few hours ) of solid downloading/uploading, the internet will completely cease to work on this computer. I have to reboot it. The other computer that is on the same router, still gets onto the net fine.

I have a Intel Pro 1000 CT integrated network card on my Abit IC7-G with the newest drivers. Is there something I can configure differently to prevent this from happening? I hate leaving downloads/uploads over night to find that 3 hours into them, they just quit working.

I've noticed a strange issue with Vista 64 in that I can be downloading a file and then inexplicably it will stop and not resume. At first I thought it was just my connection, but it turned out that both IE and FF are acting the same way regardless of the website. If I did the same download on another machine using XP or 2K, it would download from start to finish. On this very same machine, in XP, downloads have no issue, but as soon as I'm in Vista, I will have a hard time doing a large file download...

anyone else notice this issue?

Hello all, i just moved to a a new place, there are 5 people sharing this place (not sure what it's called in english).

Ever since i set my desktop up here i've been having an issue downloading .. anything. I can download torrents just fine, without issues. However - when there's a launcher or anything like it (Ex: Video game launchers/downloads) my downloads will stop randomly, by that i mean the download speed will completely drop after about 3-10 seconds, sometimes i get lucky and the download keeps going for a couple of minutes, making it completely random. This also happens in my internet browser(s). I am at the end of my wits when it comes to this.

I'm particularly good at networking thus i come here, i am good at following directions.

In detail, this is what happens: I press download, it starts downloading, after a couple of seconds the download will completely stop progressing and the timer keeps going up until it just tells me to wait for an eternity. This issue does NOT occur when i'm downloading torrents but does happen whenever i try downloading games or anything large from my browser. The downloads ALWAYS work in the beginning but after a while they'll just die (unless i'm torrenting).

I have no issues streaming streams or watching youtube or anything like that.

I live with 5 other people, as stated above. I'm not sure that has any impact on this issue.

I have been having problems downloading either files or email attachments that were fairly large, say 4 mb or larger. I'm running XP, have 500 meg of memory, etc. Everything has been working fine except when I try to download any large file, the download would just quit about 1/2 way through. The computer wouldn't freeze, the download would just quit. On a hunch, I removed my Ativa router. Bam, problem solved. I just downloaded a 65 mb file with no problem. Other than buying a Linksys router does anyone have a suggested solution? Appreciate any help.

My computer is a laptop Toshiba computer. I was working as normal and I do remember I disconnected my USB for my mouse before trying to shut down the computer. I went to the start button to log off as I normally do, and the start window totally froze and would not let me log off as normal. I became suspicious that this may be a virus attack so I shut down immediately. So I tried to reboot, but I have been totally unsuccessful.
As I try to restart the computer, it gives me the option to "repair" and I have tried to do that, but the "windows loading files" bar that appears loads about halfway, then it comes to a total halt. I'm given an unexpected I/O error and the letters are "OXC00000e9"
The next window that appears says "Windows encountered a problem communicating with the device connected to your computer (Which currently I do not have anything connected) caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as external USB drive while device in use or by faulty hardware such as hard drive or CD ROM drive that is failing." At the top of this message the page reads "Windows Boot Manager"
I have tried to reboot using F7 but no help, I tried safe mode and safe mode with networking.
I don't have reboot disks.
Is there anyone that can please help me?
I would gladly pay if you can direct me on how to resolve this or what I can do to rescue my files.

The "Downloads" folder for W10 is a little strange. I've ran W7 for years and new programs never went to the Downloads folder. W7 offers the choice of Save or Run and I always just selected Run, but Edge says Save or Save As, and you don't get the Run option till the next window.

I recently bought a W10 laptop and set it up using the Edge browser. Afterwards I discovered everything I had downloaded..... a printer driver, Kaspersky, Revo Pro, and MS Home & Student Word setup was all parked in my Downloads folder!

I thought this stuff was supposed to be somewhere back on the hard drive in Program files.
Once these programs are installed, do they still need to sit in your Downloads folder or can you safely delete them out?
Is the Downloads folder just a temporary parking place till the program is installed?

Answer:Downloads Folder Holding All My New Program Downloads?

The installers for programs can be deleted or copied out of the downloads folder after they have been installed, though if you have the space you may want to keep the installers in case you need to re-install in future.

This will also depend on your download speed - A decent fibre download speed and a lack of disk space would make deleting after install the way to go, but a slow download connection and lots of disk space would lend itself to saving the installer.

The reason for the change from Internet explorer's option to run, from a temp directory, ( what actually happens with the run option), to the save option in Edge, (and I think in all other browsers), is that it is safer to download and perform a deep malware scan that to rely on the quick scan that is normally the best you can expect during download.

Well, for no reason I can discern. See if anyone out there can crack this problem. I've searched the forums, and came up empty as far as finding an exact match of the problem.

The problem: Downloading EXE files and what I assume are EXE files (Flash Viewer update, Java update, etc.) stops after a short amount of progress. There's no warning message, no error message, no clue at all given by the OS; the progress bar just...stops. It waits patiently, even if I cannot. It'll stay there all day if I let it.

Replication: It's inconsistent in that some EXEs do download just fine, but consistent in that the same EXE files always freeze. Consequently, I don't have the latest Java updates, Flash Viewer updates, and more, and I can't download Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger. The latest problem: I can't play my new game, Company of Heroes, until the in-game patch downloader installs the latest patch. Problem is, it freezes.

System configs: This happens on both of my Vista Ultimate 32-bit machines at home: one a home-built desktop, one a Gateway laptop. The problem files, updates, and circumstances are identical between the two machines, so please no "homebuilt-bashing" or "Gateway-bashing" in regards to this issue. Seriously, the only things in common between these two machines are (1) I'm the user (2) the OS (3) same network. Desktop is cabled Ethernet, laptop is wireless 802.11g.

Answer:EXE downloads and plugin downloads stop for no reason

Hi Akambe and welcome to a world where there are 90% men.

I think I had the same problem some years ago. I'm not sure if this will do any good, but it's better than nothing.

Click on Accessories and RUN and type this sfc /scannow
This will repair windows or replace either corrupt or missing files.
Have the OS DVD in drive while doing this.

Also on RUN type msconfig and on the StartUp tab disable things you don't want starting up. Try disabling everything and see if there's any difference. Something could be conflicting with other applications.

Other things you can do is to clean your HDD with ccleaner.
Enable Advanced options while doing so which will eliminate a lot of garbage from your PC. It's all safe to do so.

Hope this helps.

I recently started getting very annoying problem. Firefox or other program stops responding and alt+ctrl+del stops working at the same time so I have to reboot. It happens quite often.

What I did already:
*Maybe virus? Full boot time system scan with Avast anti-virus. Nothing found.
*Oh well reinstall windows again... Yes, I did that too. Still same problem BUT ONLY after small break like two days or so.
And most confusing thing is that full screen programs like games do not seem to stop responding. Still, they BSOD like after few hours, but I do not think it is related. Like heavy load or something.

My system details hopefully in my forum profile, at least filled them recently.

So any other ideas how I can fix that?

I have been dealing with this issue for months and had to put it aside because of the flu and then some urgent hardware problems.

I'm running Outlook 2010 with about 5 separate POP 3 accounts. I archive regularly and compact after archiving. After a lot of trouble cloning a new C drive to an SSD, Outlook, along with a lot of other software, began acting strangely. Everything has pretty much been resolved except for the Outlook problem.

For no reason I can isolate, Outlook will suddenly close, giving the message that it had to close and it will now try to retrieve my data. It does so, unless I was in the middle of composing an email - that will be gone! Sometimes, instead of closing, it freezes and says application not responding.

I checked the disk for errors using scan now and it's fine. I've run memtest and it's fine. I've run in safe mode and it just shut down with no comments. In working my way through suggestions on this board, I just ran Sysinternals Process Explorer until the error occurred and went back to normal. In looking at Process Explorer, I'm afraid the actual data is overwhelming to me. However, I'll attach everything I have.

What programs do i need on my Win 7 Premium 64-bit/Dell Inspiron? Do i need QuickTime & iTunes to play an iTunes musical app? And what's Java for? Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Reader? I just want to get rid of programs that i'm not going to use/need, can you help me?  I read & listen to books, music, & movies.  I don't do gaming. And there's an app by Apple called "Relax Melodies" that i want to download, & if i download it does that mean i need QuickTime & iTunes or can Windows Media Player be used or is there one you would suggest i download to take care of all my needs?

And that's not putting me at a high risk? Please advise?

Answer:Downloads

Do i need QuickTime & iTunes to play an iTunes musical app?
--Whatever VLC won't play, QuickTime can fill in the gap.
 
And what's Java for?
-- Firefox is a bigtime user of Java, it's like DirectX for Internet Explorer.
 
Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Reader?
-- There are alternative PDF data file readers, I went back to Adobe eventually for my PDF readings.
 
I just want to get rid of programs that i'm not going to use/need, can you help me?
-- When installing most if not all software stuff, if given the choice, do the Custom or Advanced installs, such will give you a chance to uncheck extras.
 
  I read & listen to books
-- There are some great free readers [voice & text-only] available.
 
...music, & movies
-- VLC free version will probably be all you need; and maybe Apple's QuickTime.
 
Apple..."Relax Melodies"...
-- I don't know, others will have to comment on this one
 
Also been looking at various VPN's to add a layer of security, any suggestions on which one i should use?
-- Some internet security packages such as Avast, AVG, Avira [and a whole lot of others!!] provide VPN operations.  I don't have a favorite or a recommendation -- others may have.
 
And that's not putting me at a high risk?
-- There is no such thing as 100% security; Quietman7 has some very great boilerplate posts that explain a great deal about security.

I have Vista Home with Kaspersky security.  We used to get automatic Microsoft updates, then it stopped.  Also I had a subscription to BigFishGames with no trouble with downloads.  All of a sudden the automatic updates would not download.  Then several months later the downloads from BFG produced a DOWNLOAD ERROR message.  We tried whitelisting BFG to no avail.  Have tried browser settings and firewall.  Nothing helped.  We did receive 1 automatic update from Microsoft then they stopped again.  What is going on?  Would it be of any help to change security to Norton 360 V 2009?  Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Answer:downloads

QuoteWould it be of any help to change security to Norton 360 V 2009?NO! This is like killing your own computer.Kaspersky is one of the best out there in the field of antivirus.Anyways, What Operating System is this?When you try to download the updates, what is the EXACT error message?

I am sorry but I have only had this Y510P system for less than a day and in that time I have downloaded Microsoft Project and Webroot and I can't find either one of them. It's like they get canibilized by Lenovo never to be seen again. I have previously only had this experience when tossing socks into the dryer..I know 6 went in but only 5 came out. In this case I am not new to computers, I have downloaded and saved stuff all the time but I have no idea where this stuff is going. It's not in my start menu, on my desktop, it just disappears. Maybe it gets lost in the chasm of a terabite hard drive with nothing else in it.. Have anyone else had this issue? 

Answer:Where do my downloads go??

Try looking it up in the download folder.

Question: Downloads

I want to make certain files downloadable from my site but I don't know how. I use Macromedia dreamweaver MX and I upload using FTP. Please will someone help!!!

Answer:Downloads

Create a folder in your web directory structure and call it downloads. Place a copy of the file(s) you want people to be able to download in this folder, and then create a hyperlink to the file as normal.Depending on the file extension of the download and the computer it is being viewed on, it will either open up in the web browser (Word and Adobe Acrobat documents sometimes do this) or there will be a prompt for the computer user to open or save the file.So, put all download files into a folder in your web and use a logical name for the folder, then create your hyperlink to the file. The web browser will do the rest.Don't forget that certain downloads are best accompanied with a warning of some description. For example, for an executable file it is best to warn your site visitors clearly what it is they are downloading and whether you have checked it for virus infection.

Operating System: Vista

Disclaimer: This is my mother's computer and I'm not overly experienced with Vista.

For the last few days, I've been trying to get a virus removed from this computer (Security Suite). I downloaded Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, and Microsoft Security Essentials to a disk from a different computer and then installed them onto this one. It took me three days, but all of the scans are running clean and I was finally able to get the browser to stop redirecting me to other places by using ATF Cleaner (which again, I had to download from a different computer).

I thought the virus was preventing the downloads, but now that everything is running clean and I'm still not able to download anything, I'm not sure what the problem is. It will look as though it's downloading, but when I go to open the file, it's not where it's supposed to be. I have downloaded to the Downloads folder and to the Desktop and the files are not there and do not show up when I search for them.

Thank you for your help,

I've been using my new HP pavilion with Win XP on it for a week.

Lost my old HP running 98SE and some of the data. It is some of the "
Lost Progs I am trying to "redownload" and getting stange messages from XP and any browser.

I've been slowly transforming XP into something close to the Win 98SE I used for so many years. But, something strange and frustrating is happening and I can't figure out why.

The MS Windows Firewall is OFF.

And I am running Norton & ZoneAlarm Pro.

I have downloaded files from MicroSoft with no problems. But, when I try to download ANY OTHER FILE using either IE 6, or Netscape 7 I can't do it! For instance I can't download MailWasher?

When I try, I get these messages,

IE produces the message:

HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden
Internet Explorer and gives some strange unrelated web address in the "You are not authorized to view this page" rant.

and Netscape 7 offers up this message: "This Object Has Been Blocked" on a blank white page.

The only thing that is different in my computing world is the OS. Same ISP, same progs for the most part.

PC World Mag has the 'Hardforum' listed in "Where to go for Help!"

Here's a small .REG file that you can run to increase the number of connections for IE6. Paste this into a text file with the extension of .REG and double-click on it, it does the trick.

CAUTION! This is for Windows 2000, I have no idea what it would do to other O/S versions!

Question: downloads

hi,

when i try to download a file off the web, why does it always say corrupt file? this has happened a lot of the time now and even my antivirus cannot update because according to windows the update files are corrupt, surely all files cannot be corrupt.

i am using windows xp professonal, internet explorer 6 and using windows firewall.


i reckon there is a probkem with a particular system file inside windows which deals with installs but not sure which one.

any ideas?
 

Answer:downloads

Can you install programs from other sources OK, like a CD for instance?

Is Nortons up to date?

Are you scanning your downloded files for viruses before installing?

Do any of your downloads have md5sum's to check them against?

Are you using an anti-spyware & adware program such as AdAware V1.05? If not, do so.

And how are you downloading the files? (dial-up; ADSL; Cable).
