Unable to Download

  ulrich 17:29 31 Oct 2006

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.

Could there be anything in your firewall settings that is causing this?

Exactly what happens when you try and download a large file?

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.

So are you saying that they DO download but you can't find the downloaded file?

I've done a search but not found them.

I just tried to download the latest Google Earth.
I got "Do you want to run or save this file?" I clicked run got the green blocks and that was it.

What happens if you click Save instead of Run?

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.
