Fresh Download prob's

Hello all,

I cannot seem to get this link to start downloading:
click here
Can you?
I have been speaking to HP, and they are referring me onto a phone call now to help solve it...I expect I could sort it quicker with my friends here!
I have re-installed Fresh Download so it's all as default now. I can download other files no problem BTW.

Also, a small point, but I get a very small box on my screen about 1x2 cm in size. It says "FD Bas..." It's connected to Fresh Download as you might have guessed, but seems to serve no purpose. I cannot resize it, only click the red cross to rid of it...thoughts?

Ok, hope you can solve the downloading link problem for me...

Starts downloading OK here.

You do realise this is a 166 MB file?

I can't help with Fresh downloader, but I've just checked the link with Leechget (Largely because it integrates with firefox) click here and the download is coming in fine. I'm on dial up so forgive me if I don't download all 166Mb to test it fully.

Ok, must be me then :-(

Yes 166MB! MY HP printer has always given me a fair bit of grief and tries to reinstall itself. At least BB will make it a bit quicker!

I'll look at Leechgate then.

Thank you both very much.

Sorted it now.

Downloaded LeechGet (nice interface BTW) and it still wouldn't work. So then turned off NAV and Firewall and it will now run as expected :-)

The FDbas.. is the FD download basket.

I prefer to have an FD folder with a Desktop shortcut - after installing the downloads the FD folder's contents act as a backup (I also burned them to a multisession CD-R).

Thanks Stuartli...just saw your answer.
