Downloading Problems XP

  geekygirl 13:33 09 Nov 2003

I have problems downloading. When I try to save a picture/image ie6 closes down. Also when I try to download a file using "save" it does the same. I am only able to download a file by opening it.

I also have AVG anti virus programe, Spybot S&D, and Norton Internet Security running. Could these be anything to do with it?

Your help is appreciated!!!

Tried to repair it, as per instructions but it didn't work. There is a dll file missing. I get an error message "Error loading setupwbv.dll" The specified module could not be found. Should I download internet explorer again form the net? What effect will this have?

You could try downloading from the net. However, if you get a message that says "Setup has detected a newer version of Internet Explorer already installed on this system.
Setup cannot continue." you will need to follow click here

Just as an afterthought you could try using System File Checker. Start, Run and type in


(note the space before /)

and click OK.

You will need your Windows CD handy.

Neither of these suggestions work for me. sfc/scannow does not show anything. Losing ideas!!!???

sfc /scannow

There is a space after sfc.

maybe you need to goto folder options/file types

and goto the extension you are having problems with

and edit the settings and tick the box confirm open after download

When I'm downloading ANYTHING free screensaver, .exe file, utilities, whatever the file download box hangs/freezes. I can't even close it. Have tried scannow WITH space.

Could it be a setting somewhere?
