I have been trying to solve this problem for sometime, and I think it is a registry problem, but I cannot download large game patches, latest drivers, Google Earth etc. I can download Microsoft updatesand Anti Virus updates ok. I did find a fix on here but I lost it.
I click on download and it does with the green boxes, then I click instal and it disappears. I have had this problem for sometime. I did instal a reg tool, and I think this changed something but I am not too sure exactly when it happened, I have tried sys restore. I have just fitted a wireless on my sons pc and I can d/load what I want and basically it's the same but not so powerful, same AV and firewall.
Yes I tried that, but still didn't work. My sons pc even though not up to mine is no prob to dl the latest Google Earth. If I knew where to look in the Registry I could change the download values as I believe this is what I read but cannot find now. We both run the same AV and firerwall.
