Hi, I've tried everything that I could think, but sadly can't download ANYTHING.Please don't tell me 'clean install'.....all other comments v. welcome.

Are you using a firewall and is it setup to let you download? Try disabling it temporarily and then try to download to see if it is the problem.

If the excellent advise from Kryten fails, question: have you ever been able to download?

What actually happens? Do you mean that clicking on a "download here" link doesn't work?

What software do you use to assess the internet, and do you use a download manager?

Do you have *spit*, Godzilla installed?

Hi, When I click on 'Windows Update' in 'start menu', ...not a bubble. When I try to download from any site.....same result.even in this forum, 'click here' has stopped working completely.
