Hi all, I've recently been having problems, when trying to download files off the net. Each time i attemp to download a file the little download window that pops up just flashes on the screen and goes off again. I'm fairly new to the whole computer thing, so haven't really got a clue as to what to do. Any help would be great and thanks in advance.

Are you keeping them up-to-date?

Try firefox if you can get it to download also put your windows CD in your drive, go to Start and type sfc /scannow, wait while it does its stuff, it won't tell you if it finds any problems. (System File Checker, for info about this click on the desktop and press F1 key)

xemmax121 at the top of your internet explorer screen does a banner appear saying something like " internet explorer has stopped the download to protect your PC, click here if you wish to download". If thats all it is then you just click on the banner and it will download.
